CF group was created in 2019 from the merger of two family-owned industrial groups with shared values and complementary expertise: Chemoform AG and FIJA SAS. Today we are proud to be one of the European leaders in the manufacture and distribution of equipment for private and public swimming pools for professionals.
CF group is the continuation of two family histories, one of which began in 1962 in Wendlingen, Germany, for CHEMOFORM AG, and the other in 1975 in Brécé, France, for FIJA SAS. Two entrepreneurial backgrounds, which have always expanded close to their customers throughout Europe, both with wide and complementary product ranges: construction, renovation, consumables, above-ground pools, etc.
We currently operate in more than 40 countries, mainly in Europe, with 17 dedicated production and logistics sites. Our ambition is to continue our international growth dynamic while maintaining local roots and a close relationship with our long-standing customer base.
With more than 18 brands dedicated to swimming pool equipment, as well as working with many well-known brands, CF group is a professional, serious and sustainable player in all distribution channels.
For CF group, corporate culture is not just a concept. High standards, commitment, trust, freedom and transparency are the principles that guide us.
CF group is the combination of two corporate cultures, based for decades on high standards and trust – high standards in terms of the quality of products, teams and processes, which justify the trust of our customers.
The industrial, commercial, logistical and human synergies generated will lead to new developments.
