As its founder, Jean Jacques CAUBET, wished, HEF is mostly owned by its employees through a share incentive plan introduced in 1973. This original feature is one of the fundamental pillars on which the Group rests. It has made it possible to construct its development in a lasting manner and leads to involvement of its employees in strategic decisions. Its independence is ensured and this capitalist structure guarantees the Group financial autonomy enabling it to continuously invest in Research and Development so as to be at the forefront of innovation in order to meet its customers' requirements.
The great variety of its processes today enables the HEF Group to be involved in the functionality of surfaces, thus opening up new prospects. The HEF Group thus continues to develop, as witnessed by its numerous research contracts and partnerships, surface engineering constituting the core business and recognized area of excellence of the HEF Group.
