The Valeo adventure began in 1923 in France, in a workshop near Paris where the first brake linings were manufactured. The company grew its operations, expanding throughout France before going international: first within Europe, then Brazil, and eventually worldwide. A century later, Valeo is now a partner technology company to the world’s leading automakers. That small workshop has grown to become an international giant with operations in 29 countries and a workforce of 109,900 employees.

This year, Valeo celebrates its 100th anniversary. Now a century into its industrial adventure, the Company is a front-ranking player in sustainable mobility.

Heavy commercial vehicles

The three revolutions that swept the automotive industry are also affecting the commercial vehicle sector. Electrical systems are now an integral part of mechanics; driving assistance systems are becoming more commonplace, and digital solutions are driving the development of new functions and new uses.

At the heart of these three revolutions, Valeo offers technological innovations that meet the needs and expectations of transport players, reduce operating costs and increase operator safety and comfort.

Reducing consumption 


As the world leader in the reduction of CO2 emissions, Valeo makes electrical systems such as the Valeo 48-volt starter-alternator which is contributing to the growth in hybrid vehicles for cleaner mobility solutions that emit less CO2.

The most effective transmissions systems as well as better management of thermal flows (battery cooling for electric vehicles and cabin comfort) are also helping to reduce fuel consumption and are thereby leading to greater vehicle autonomy.

Improving driving assistance systems

Valeo makes the widest range of sensors in the automotive industry. These include ultrasonic sensors, cameras, radars and LiDARs, which act like eyes and ears for vehicles.

Specific sensors adapted to heavy-duty vehicles are designed to improve safety by scanning the interior and exterior of the vehicle. They are also helping to drive the growth of increasingly autonomous vehicles.

Making vehicle sharing easier

Thanks to the Valeo InBlue™, Valeo is making vehicle sharing easier and more secure, boosting it to an unprecedented level. Valeo InBlue™ gives fleet managers digital funcionality from accessing the vehicle to returning it, doing away with constraints due to having to physically hand over keys from one user to the next (between two drivers of the same truck, for example).
