Car Part Manufacturer
Car part supplier Valeo started in 1923 in France near Paris with the production of brake linings and clutch parts.
About ten years later, complete Valeo clutch kits became the company’s main area of activity after WWII. Thanks to the takeover of another French company producing heating and air conditioning parts, Valeo expanded its area of business. The takeover led to a restructuring during the 1960s also allowing geographic expansion towards the Italian and Spanish markets.
The name Valeo wasn’t used however until 1980 when it was taken on to ensure more unification within the company.
During the rest of the 1980s Valeo expanded its activities over different continents including North and South America, Asia and other European countries. In addition it took over Ducellier which specialised in the production of headlights and ignition systems. Although the international expansion of Valeo continued during the 1990s, the company also made excellence and technological development a top priority.
This resulted in the issuing of parking assistance systems and electronic parts allowing vehicles to become more efficient and economic.
Today Valeo is known for the production of excellent quality car parts. Valeo supplies parts both to OE manufacturers and the aftermarket all over the world.
