Inalfa was founded in 1946 as a dynamic production and trade company in ironmongery and consumer goods. Since then, Inalfa has developed into an imposing multinational cooperation with production plants both at home in the Netherlands and abroad. In the fifties and sixties, Inalfa was one of the most important producers of gas and oil heaters. At the beginning of the seventies, Inalfa took the challenge to change its course drastically. At that time, it changed into a sheet metal forming company producing metal products for cars, office machines and household apparatus.

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 many others followed. In the eighties, Inalfa also started production of truck hatches.

Inalfa opened facilities worldwide close to its many car and truck customers'assembly lines.

Forty years later, Inalfa is now serving all major OEM's across the globe with a large variety of roof systems.
