Who are we ?
With 65 years of experience in this field, our SME always has to innovate, diversify, discover new markets, in order to acquire and develop new skills.
Our two complementary activities perfectly meet the needs of mobility transport authorities, whether in terms of the renewal of their fleets or the maintenance of their fleets.
SAFRA’s strength lies in the complementarity of our two activities and the sharing of our in-house know-how and expertise.
Developed in very low and zero emission, as well as in three dimensions, this vehicle is entirely designed, manufactured and marketed by the SAFRA teams.
Our maintenance and renovation activities apply to all types of transport equipment: buses, trams, metros, VAL, railway cars and funiculars.
Our industrial tool
The company now occupies an area of 8.5 ha in the Fonlabour business area, at the entrance to the town of Albi in the Albigeois Agglomeration Community.
In order to organise production in the best possible way, SAFRA has installed several buildings to guarantee flexible production capacity in line with current markets.
The site also has its own railway spur on the Toulouse-Albi line, which serves its buildings directly and thus receives trains on track.
The design office
The SAFRA design office benefits from high-performance equipment, enabling it to respond to our customers’ problems.
Our tools enable us to position ourselves reactively in the face of design or product development problems. We are also working on the development of our own software for the SAFRA Constructor business with application programming as well as testing and debugging of soft and CAN networks.
- Mechanical design (chassis, ground connection, motorization, bodywork, interior design)
- Electrical design (traction chain, harnesses, electrical architecture,…)
- Embedded systems (CAN network architecture, soft development, …)
- Artificial intelligence (energy optimization, control logic,…)
- Computer (Wifi, database, back-office tool, …)

Word of the president
Mobility is a fundamental freedom and will be increasingly multiple. Public transit will retain an unparalleled efficiency in our cities and cities, in France and around the world. And this is where the problems of air pollution, the dangerous emissions, are concentrated, and the place of autosolism must be reduced.
Our historic activity of passenger transport equipment makes it possible to extend the life of vehicles, making transportation safer, comfortable and less polluting.
Our activity as an electric bus manufacturer was also born from the observation of these environmental and urban issues: building a high-performance urban bus, the BUSINOVA.
This approach is the explicit proof.
