ESF Industrial Solutions Group is a automotive supplier for fluid transfer systems and sealing solutions
ESF Industrial Solutions Group was formed by the merger of SFC Solutions Group (leading supplier of high-performance fluid transmission systems and seals) and Elastomer Solutions Group (manufacturer of rubber and thermoplastic components).
The two companies continued to drive the integration process in 2021 in order to achieve efficiencies from both a sales and operational perspective.
With manufacturing facilities in Europe (Spain, Portugal and Slovakia), Africa (Morocco), Central America (Mexico) and Asia (India), the company serves a broad customer base, including major global and local OEMs and several Tier-1 suppliers for the automotive industry and manufacturers of industrial goods.
All plants are state-of-the-art, complemented by strong engineering capabilities, and feature key industry-specific certifications such as ISO 14001, ISO 9001:2015, and IATF 16949:2016.
The Group will focus on three development areas:
Sustain growth by developing business along all key markets, leveraging the distribution channels available to each company, taking advantage of market trends and development in the industry (i.e., battery electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles), and working closely with OEMs to develop new technologies and products.
Efficiency gains through the implementation of a lean management approach in both, direct and indirect areas, the optimization of make-or-buy decisions in the context of existing production sites, the reduction of scrap as well as the simplification of logistics processes are operational focal points within the Group.
Synergies such as the mutual use of free manufacturing capacities, the establishment of a joint shared services team and the harmonization of the IT platform are to be realized.
