Founded in 1955, SAFRA (Société Albigeoise de Fabrication et Réparation Automobile) initially produced coach bodywork to be fitted onto manufacturer chassis-cabins. Throughout its history, the company has constantly developed to adapt to changes in the “people transport” market. One example was the change in activity that began in the late 70s: from a coach bodywork manufacturer, SAFRA became a bodywork renovator and repairer. Over the years, SAFRA has regularly diversified and the company now operates in 3 complementary business sectors: the Automobile Division, the Interior Layout Division and the Public Transport Equipment Division, made up of two activities: SAFRA Renovation and SAFRA Manufacturer.
