Etienne Chambon, managing director : 

"Estamfor has been a strategic supplier for Caterpillar for over 50 years, providing multiple types of complex, turnkey components and sub-assemblies to over 10 facilities globally. It is the first time we reach such a high level of recognition and this award highlights the team efforts, day after day, to achieve excellence in terms of logistics and quality. We look forward to continuing towards that path for the coming 50 years !".

Based in the Ardennes, the company is a historical player in the production of forged components for the automotive, construction and agricultural sectors. Since 2010, Setforge Estamfor has initiated a strong diversification by integrating machining and assembly and is now differentiated by the production of heavy, complex, machined and assembled parts

The company has recently received confirmation of a subsidy within the framework of France Relance for its "Renewal" project. This will allow Setforge Estamfor to continue its development by enabling it to integrate new machining machines, to modernize its equipment and to continue the robotization and digitalization of its production lines.

Good news for the future !
