The AKWEL Family Group celebrates 50 years of industrial

To mark its 50th anniversary, AKWEL is revisiting the half-century that made its history. In 1972 in Champfromier (Ain), the Coutier brothers, André, Joseph and Roger, founded the company Coutier SARL, a subcontractor specialising in the production of plastic parts, at a time when the automotive industry was the leading economic sector in France. From general manufacturer to tier 1 component manufacturer, AKWEL’s range and skills have evolved thanks to new technologies, constant innovation and external growth.

The history of AKWEL is available in the virtual and experiential museum dedicated to the group’s anniversary at, which is structured around three key milestones: yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The story is punctuated with archival material and specially prepared content to offer an authentic and carefully curated experience.
