SAFRA (Société Albigeoise de Fabrication et Réparation Automobile), a family business, was founded in 1955 by Roger BODOIRA whose prime vocation was coach-building.

Today, Safra has three distinct businesses:


The Body Shop department specializes in car repairs (paint and bodywork) and breakdown service for all types and makes of light vehicles, whether privately owned, professional fleets or leased.

Public Transport Equipment

The Commercial Body Shop specializes in the provision of equipment, fitting out and heavy maintenance of urban passenger transport vehicles. Specializing in the renovation of standard and articulated buses, Safra has recently extended its expertise to the rail sector: trams, undergrounds and rail carriages.


The Shop fitting Workshop specializes in the fitting out of service industry areas (shops, workplaces…) as well as special vehicles.
