Inalfa Roof Systems - Our History

Inalfa was founded in 1946 as a metal company. In 1974 the production of a new product started: the car roof system. The first customers were Jaguar and Rover, but it did not take long before SAAB, Fiat, Chrysler, GM and Volvo were added to the list of customers. In the meantime, more than 30 years later Inalfa serves virtually all major OEM's across the globe. In 2011, 65 years after the foundation, Inalfa was sold to the Chinese company Beijing Hainachuan Automotive Parts Co. Ltd. further empowering our global strategy.


In 1985 the globalization of Inalfa Roof Systems began with the opening of a facility in the USA. In the meantime, Inalfa has facilities all over the globe; the Netherlands, Slovakia, USA, Mexico, Brazil, China, South Korea and Japan. In the beginning of 2014 we opened a new facility in Poland.
