CERI and its history


A small group of technicians decides to embark on the industrial adventure of the machine tools. Mr. Sabia Nicolas, at the head of this group, develops the Special- Machines activity thanks to the growth of the automotive industry in France.


The company BOUST – precision machining is bought. The CERI group is created, with these two independent entities, but very complementary. Through this acquisition and the creation of the Group, CERI strengthens its expertise in mechanical subcontracting, a critical point for special machines projects.


In 2002, René Clément, formerly great name of the French machine-tools, took over. This acquisition reinforces CERI’s activity on special or flexible machining machines, Rétrofits.


CERI celebrates its 40th birthday. The anniversary day takes place on November 24, with more than 300 clients and historical contacts present. This day is also the occasion to inaugurate the new hall for large machines, as well as a complete renovation of the premises. (4 halls with an area of 2500m2)

Arnaud Sabia, son of Nicolas Sabia joins the CERI Group. The development continues, especially for export and non-automotive activity.


Serimatec – Robotisation and Automation integrates the CERI group. This 3rd independent entity in the CERI Group strengthens the Group’s ability to offer global solutions, such as complete lines or cells to complete workshop automation.


CERI is visually updated with a modernized version of its logo.
