N°1 in France for professional clothing

Ecologically and socially responsible brands

CEPOVETT is a French industrial textile group founded in 1948 in Villefranche-sur-Saône, and a European leader on the workwear market. Its product ranges (workwear, uniforms, corporate and protective wear) respond to companies’ various professional clothing needs. A family business for three generations, today CEPOVETT is an expert in its field and a pioneer in the sale of textile solutions. More than just a clothing manufacturer, CEPOVETT also assists professionals in managing the outsourcing of their company clothing needs. CEPOVETT caters to everyone from sole traders to key accounts including AIR FRANCE, ACCORHOTELS, SNCF, RATP, Europcar, Orange, VINCI, NESPRESSO and the City of Paris. The group’s growth has been achieved through the acquisition and incorporation of external companies, namely local SMBs established in their territories, today constituting a solid group with nearly 295 employees.



CEPOVETT Group has integrated sustainable development for several years at the heart of its business strategy, business processes and tools.

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy, carried by The General Management, applies to the entire product life cycle: from conception to the end of professional clothing’s life. Declined in 10 areas of progress commitments, it is a lever for team mobilization, differentiation and sustainable value creation.
