SURFLEX is an Italian company that was originally established in 1950 by Giuseppe Rimoldi. They were the first Italian company to produce clutches for motorcycle use. From the outset SUFLEX set up a permanent research department, which over the years has developed organic and sintered material for linings. The first sinter bonded plate was successfully tested on the race-track in the 1960s by no other than Giacomo Agostini on his MV Agusta!
Such success in competition, combined with their high quality ensured Surflex became (and still is) a global brand, their continued success & demand saw a second factory opening in 1972. Since then, considerable investment has been continuously made to increase their range of products, improve research and better production processes in order to meet the more and more exigent requirements of the market.
The company policy of ‘zero defect production’ for full customer satisfaction was recognized in 1995, when they were granted ISO EN 9001 Certification.
