Cefla in the first class in the CRIF rating

Cefla recently was placed in the first class by the Crif rating agency, an index equivalent to maximum reliability for the banks.

This is why, rather than the turnover of around 361 million euro in 2013, itself a 5% increase on that of 2012, the first class rating was conditioned by aconsiderable reduction of debt, in any case very low, which has been cut from the 49 million euro of 2011 to a figure of just 4 million over the course of two years". This was the explanation given by the Chairman of Cefla, Gianmaria Balducci, who went on to explain how the company management has enabled the acheivement of such a result.

“Careful management of the warehouses, rationalisation of the product range, prioritising modularity and thoroughness in collecting payments. We have also started a process of reorganisation, which we hope will enable us to make the most of the synergies on a Group level, from the use of premises down to the expertise of workers in the various business units, who have never previously spoken to each other as they are doing now. The managerial team is cohesive and collaborative. We are always trying to ask something more of ourselves, keep in step with the times and think as a Group rather than as single divisions, which, by definition, are divided”.

Actions

Eco-sustainable Production
A significant amount of thermal energy is consumed during the manufacturing process, for example during the finishing phase. Because of this the heat produced is reused to heat our buildings.

 

 

Cefla Shopfitting Solutions carefully manages how it disposes of and recycles industrial waste and carries out the following initiatives:

  • Water consumption monitoring: 44.000 litres recycled on average during the year.
  • Recycling of powder and iron waste resulting in 1085 tonnes being recycled on average in a year.
  • Recycling of "lost" powder paint during the painting phase.
  • Monitor of waste and percentage recycling in production and office facilities.


Sustainable consumption
With regards to energy consumption reductions we propose LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology for part of its light solutions. LED lighting solutions can be characterised as follows:

  • Reliability.
  • Extended length of life.
  • Increased efficiency.
  • Low consumption up to 50% savings compared to traditional fluorescent lighting.
  • "Clean" light as UV components are absent.
  • Absence of toxic or poisonous materials, such as mercury.
  • Components are simple to recycle and dispose of.
