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.

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.

  • Max Fontaine, fondateur de l'entreprise Bondy
    The forest area in Madagascar is decreasing, even though a lot of money has been spent on reforestation since 1960. Today, we wish to revolutionize the way reforestation is carried out in Madagascar. Instead of a lot of unnecessary reforestation, smaller reforestation projects will be carried out with a tangible impact. Our challenge is to find land for our plantations, it's a huge job to convince farmers to reforest their land.

  • Karim Kentache, Responsable Service Habillement AIR FRANCE
    Not-wasting natural resources and the circular economy are key challenges for Air France. Our Clothing Department is also expected to play its role for the Planet. Recycling end-of-service-life items, reusing them and any other virtuous approach should be pursued. This clearly expresses the company's desire to adapt through our employees' workwear and uniforms.
