The CIF company

Expert in Equipment, Products and Services for Electronics

In the beginning

Since its creation in 1979, CIF – Circuit Imprimé Français has designed and manufactured equipment and products for the production of printed circuits.

This equipment is intended for design offices, technical education and small series.


In 2000, CIF merged with ATHELEC, which specialises in the marketing of assembly equipment.

The customer can now find at CIF a complete range to realize an electronic card from A to Z.

CIF Activities today

This development required a new organisation to be put in place with the creations,

  • A division for the laboratory and micro-series – CIF LAB
  • A division for small series and production – CIF PROD
