The SIFCOR group, through its various subsidiaries, manufactures steel forgings in large or medium series, intended for the automobile, truck and motorcycle markets, by:
- Hot stamping on mechanical presses or robotic rams for the suspension, engine and transmission,
- Warm or cold extrusion, for the differential case, the gearbox, the engine, the suspension and transmission
- Heat treatment, Coating, Machining, Assembly.
Manufacture of pinions for differentials, gearboxes, engines and transmission parts by cold and warm forging, machining, heat treatment and assembly of parts (for long production runs).
Forges de Courcelles
Manufacture of steel parts for suspensions, engines and transmissions by stamping, hot or warm forming, on either fast rams or robotic mechanical presses, integrating, depending on the criteria selected, heat treatment, coating, machining and assembly.
SIFCOR is a family-owned group founded in the 1880s, with the establishment and modernization of industrial means for the manufacture of cutlery preforms in Nogent in Haute-Marne. Very quickly though, the Group turned to other fields of activity, including the automobile industry, which has considerably developed since the 1950’s, representing currently the main part of its activity.
Today, the SIFCOR Group is made up of two subsidiaries representing the two main phases of technological integration and evolution.
Starting with drop forging for parts with medium sized production runs, then integrating warm forging by extrusion in the 1970’s for long production runs, SIFCOR is bringing about changes in the forging industry in order to meet the high demands in the field it has devoted itself to.
