The most trusted
surface finishing
partner, in everything
you see.


Trust is a value that is only earned over time. Trust is an ingredient of everything we do, large or small. The trust we cultivate internally between colleagues feeds our ability to express our collective expertise externally. Trust is an instinctive bond which enables partners to advance unhindered towards a common goal. We have made this value ours since we began providing innovative surface enhancement technologies to empower our customers’ businesses and help achieve their objectives. Trust is part of our heritage, acquired in over 60 years acting as an enabler for customers in the finishing of wood and its derivatives, and driving their evolution. Transparency, integrity and the willingness to experiment novel solutions in order to satisfy a customer’s needs make us the most trusted partner in the market.


Partners share a common goal. Partners do not come and go, they are present every step of the way. Partnership is also our collective approach as a team and the springboard which projects us towards each solution. As a partner, we listen to a customer’s needs, understand their objectives and appreciate their business context in order to exploit our extensive skills and knowledge to benefit them. Working together, we are driven by the tailored solution they require, not by an off-the-shelf machine we could manufacture. Our partnership is based on mutual trust, so much so that each of us will instinctively advocate our respective values.


Everything is a way of saying that the number of objects that have undergone surface finishing you see each day is almost infinite. We see everything from the point of view of a finishing operation: either to enhance its visual or tactile appeal, increase its surface resistance or apply a specific quality finish. We have created solutions for everything found in the building sector, and it is our intention to cover other areas in a similar way. We believe our experience and expertise are sufficiently broad to grow further and bring innovative solutions that will improve the techniques used for the surface finishing of almost everything you see.

Cefla Finishing adopts a strict environmental impact and well-being management policy. It does so through constant research and development to obtain ecological finishing processes and gaseous emissions purification systems that comply with EU standards.

Some of the patents incorporated in our coating solutions and the machines on our finishing or digital printing lines concern transfer efficiency and overspray. Examples include the Airsphere plenum, the coating retrieval system and those technologies that allow for more efficient use of energy resources - at considerably lower cost - and the elimination of machine downtimes. 

Focusing on sustainability also means focusing on people: that’s why we’ve designed new, improved human-machine interfaces.

What’s more, Cefla Finishing is ISO 9001:2015 certified for the design, production, installation and after-sales assistance of finishing machines and lines for wood, glass, plastic, fibre cement, metals and composite materials.
