Members of the Aluroll team recently visited Somfy in France to follow the journey of a Somfy product.

Representatives explored Somfy’s state-of-the-art research and development, manufacturing, testing, packaging and dispatch facilities, located in and around Cluses, between Geneva and Chamonix in the French Alps.

Following the initial concept and design stages Somfy products undergo rigorous testing in the fields of longevity, acoustics and performance under a range of temperature and humidity conditions. These stringent initial and ongoing quality checks have allowed Somfy to become a world-leader in the field of automation.  


The Aluroll team also saw where motor components are manufactured and assembled by hand, then packaged and dispatched to locations across the globe.

During the visit we received a sneak preview of Somfy’s vision for the future of home automation. They watched demonstrations of how their Secureroll garage door can be integrated into the smarthome ecosystem and controlled via mobile app, Alexa or Google Home.


Neil Sorrell, Channel Manager at Somfy UK, accompanied Aluroll on the trip. He said: “We were pleased to have the opportunity to show Aluroll where their Somfy products come from, and their feedback has been that they found it an eye-opening and interesting experience.

“Being frontrunners in roller garage door innovation they are the perfect partners to help introduce Somfy home automation to the industry, and Aluroll’s impressive showroom is the ideal place for us to demonstrate the range of products we offer”.

Having learnt about the benefits of Somfy home automation, Aluroll are expanding their product range to encompass the new products. Customers can now purchase sensors, home alarms and CCTV cameras which work harmoniously with Secureroll roller garage doors.
