Improving Since 1964

Being proud. This is the main purpose of what we realize. Probably, the only way to be immortal.

Walter Barbieri, Cofle CEO

IN THE 60’S… In 1964 Bruno Barbieri founds Cofle, introducing an innovative way in manufacturing Control Cables for the Automotive Industry. The first production line is for Original Equipment Cables (OEM) for the most important italian brands.


IN THE 70’S… The Company increases rapidly, moving into a new manufacturing plant. The Automotive control cables range, as well as the systems for Agricultural and Earth Moving Machines, are greatly extended. Cofle starts to distribute its solutions on a global basis.


IN THE 80’S… The first plant for internal production of cables, inner tubes, covered wire ropes, cover conduits for pull and push-pull cables is created; the starting of this process for verticalization of production would allow Cofle to become an “all-in-house” company.


IN THE 90’S… These are the years of the Aftermarket division achievements: its increasingly recognition within the markets induces Cofle to establish a new logistic center, with a 4000 square meters warehouse.
Cofle starts his expansion abroad founding Tabo in Turkey, carried out into producing After Market articles originally to be meant for Middle Eastern and North African markets.


THE NEW MILLENIUM… The company has a great impulse in its external expansion. In quick succession Cofle DCI and Cofle TK, both in Turkey, and Cofle China are founded, meanwhile laying the groundworks for Cofle do Brasil, that will start its first production in 2016.
