Henri Morel, president of SFPI Group, was elected at the FIM general assembly of June 19, 2019 president of the Federation of Mechanical Industries, for a three-year term. He wishes to take advantage of the strategic reflection initiated by the FIM and its 24 unions to define a professional mechanical organization of the future capable of supporting companies in their transformation and development. "I want our collective action to bring more added value to member companies and thus contribute to the development of their activity and to their strengthening in the world," he indicates.
Henri Morel, 62, graduated in Political Science, Business Law (Masters) and HEC (MBA), began his career in 1983 as Chairman of Dupeux (industrial thermal). After buying Deny in 1984, he created SFPI Group (Safety for People and Industry) a year later, of which he is Chairman and CEO. It brings together several companies within this group: DOM Security (locks and access control), MAC (building closures), Neu-JKF (air treatment in industrial buildings), MMD / Barriquand (heat exchangers for building and industry).

Convinced that the mechanical industries have a major role to play in the transformation of the entire industry and therefore of the country's economy, Henri Morel wants to dedicate his mandate to excellence. “To meet the major challenges of the 21st century, the metal trades must benefit from a favorable economic, fiscal and legal framework.
