Nicole and Michel Lahouati founded Eurofeu, a company trading in fire equipment, in 1972. The company's first extinguisher was manufactured in 1981 in Le Mesnil-Thomas. The Eurofeu production unit developed the manufacturing of its own ranges of certified extinguishers of all types and capacities.
The group gradually expanded through internal and external growth, developing its own production unit and new brands and creating new dedicated companies. These new companies included Eurofeu Services, set up in 2007, which improved coverage across France with an integrated network of around twenty branches and a National Key Accounts department dealing with the direct sale and maintenance of nearly two million safety devices.
Eurofeu has developed special ranges such as SPIT, AFREX and AREX for its network of dealers, which now consists of more than 500 customers.
New lines of business related to fire protection were added to the manufacture and distribution of extinguishers, including signage, training, smoke extraction systems and fire detection systems.
It was therefore a joint growth strategy which enabled the group to shape its business development and establish itself as one of the leading companies in the fire safety sector in France. In 2016, 86,000 customers bought our products and services and 665,000 extinguishers were sold.
Our goal? To meet our customers' fire safety, security and emergency response requirements.
The Eurofeu group now has eight subsidiaries across approximately thirty sites, employs nearly 1,000 staff and has a turnover of €85 million (provisional figure for 2016). It is one of the market leaders in fire safety in France and has received a number of awards. In fact, Eurofeu is the only company on the market to have received innovation awards and trophies at the sector's trade shows for its range of extinguishers with eco-friendly additive.
The group is a full and very active member of the Fédération Française des Métiers de l’Incendie (FFMI), the French federation of fire professionals, which is a key partner for the public authorities in France.
With a customer base of more than 86,000 direct customers in France and nearly 500 dealers internationally, the Eurofeu group continues to grow to ensure it remains a market leader in fire safety.READ MORE
