Valeo’s history in Brazil started in 1974, with the acquisition of the Brazilian radiators factory, Sofica, located in Sao Paulo. Shortly after, the group acquired Cibié, and the three companies merged together and settled in the area of Interlagos in Sao Paulo. In 1980, the Group adopted the name of VALEO. Another major milestone in Valeo’s Brazilian history is the opening of the factory in Campinas in 1999 with the production of thermal and visibility systems. A year later, Valeo introduced Valeo Service to the automotive market, a new and effective business model where the aftermarket clients find all Valeo products in one distribution network.
