– Safan Darley



The SafanDarley brand originates from 2012, when the brands of Safan and Darley were merged. Thanks to their rich history, Safan B.V. and Darley B.V. have the experience needed to be able to operate in today’s top segment of the sheet metal working market. Safan B.V. was incorporated in 1960 as a pooling of resources from 5 Dutch manufacturers in the field of machines and tools for the sheet metal working industry. The most important one of these manufacturers and the driving force behind the development of Safan, was Wila of Lochem. This company had been operating as an engineering works for the sheet metal working industry since 1932. Darley B.V. was incorporated in 1934 as a machinery plant, mainly as a supplier for the then state mines, and after 1957 it started to specialise in hydraulic sheet metal working machines.

Innovative genes

Since then, both companies have recorded important milestones and patents. Darley for instance not only secured a prominent position with highquality hydraulic press brakes, it is now also the market leader in the cathode-processing industry thanks to its cathode shears. In 1995, Safan secured one of the most important patents in the sheet metal working industry: the servo-electronic drive for the E-Brake press brake. This valuable electronic press brake has caused a huge E-volution in the sheet metal working industry. Rising demand from the international market prompted a considerable expansion of the Lochem plant in 2009. SafanDarley B.V. was incorporated in 2013 as a joint sales and service organisation. The three companies form a healthy and financially strong group with a total of approx. 200 members of staff. The group forms part of Nivora Holding, which also includes BEWO Cutting Systems, Dynobend and Style CNC Machines.   To See All of the Safan Darley Product Line, Please Click Here!
