Innovative composite materials with excellent performance
For more than 40 years, Serge Ferrari has supported iconic architecture in the UK.
Composite materials for demanding requirements
Since 1973, the Serge Ferrari Group has been developing, producing and marketing products as a specialist for innovative composite materials that meet a wide range of technical requirements for various areas of application: architecture, special applications (modular structures, environmental protection) and end consumers (outdoor furniture, solar protection etc.).
Serge Ferrari addresses a comprehensive range of issues to deal with central tasks of the future: sustainable construction, energy efficiency, conservation of resources, design for all and social responsibility.
High innovation strength and international focus
The French company, acknowledged throughout the world as one of the market leaders for composite materials, is present in 80 countries with eight subsidiaries (USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Brazil, India, China, Turkey and Germany) and a network of more than 100 distributors.
The composite materials and yarns are produced at four production facilities in France, Italy and Switzerland. For 2019, the group’s consolidated turnover for the year was 189 million euros, 75 % of which was generated outside France. Listed on Euronext Paris, the Serge Ferrari Group employs 830 people worldwide.

Full covering of all production stages
In doing so, the group of companies controls all stages of production (vertical integration)
- research & development
- yarn manufacture
- coating of composite materials
- sales and distribution
Striking solutions for fire safety.
Today and tomorrow
One area of focus within Research & Development has been to provide composite materials encompassing as much fire safety as possible from as far back as the 1980s.
A new stage of development took place in the implementation of composite materials with a high standard of fire safety: For this purpose, in 2015, the screen material Soltis Safe SK20 was presented for internal solar shading as well as in 2018, Stamisol Safe One was presented as the first Euroclass A2 façade breather membrane behind cladding.
Wide experience in high-performance
The experience of more than a decade in the development of the most demanding glass fibre/elastomer composite materials for architectural and industrial applications made the use of this innovative technology now also possible for façade membranes in Euroclass A2.
Extensive capacity for glass-fibre fabrics
As one of the largest weaving mills for fibreglass fabrics, Serge Ferrari has extensive capacity for international product coverage and one of the world’s most experienced teams to manufacture this hi-tech material.
