About us

A.R.E.F, your maintenance and machining partner!

We have specialised for over 40 years in the industrial maintenance of all metal forming and cutting (cutting, press-forming, forging, cold heading), with expertise in manufacturing equipment and heavy engineering.

We have been building our skills in the forging industry since 1976, making us a recognised player in industrial maintenance and rebuilding.

In 2013, AREF joined the Vinci Energies group, benefitting from the resources and structure of an international company.

In 2016, we became an Actemium network member, which brings together the Group’s different companies to best serve our industrial customers.
