Organization Structure

We are working through a worldwide structure:

  • Via CFIh (Chemical & Fertilizer Industry holding Pte Ltd), based in Singapore: commercial, marketing, legal and financial activities. CFIh manages contracts and makes project follow-up. CFIh provides process engineering and finding of solutions. All critical engineering documents are developed in accordance with the guidelines from CFIh and final versions checked by CFIh.
  • Via CFIt (India) and CFIa (Tunisia), the engineering business units to implement engineering activities (calculations, drawings, process, instrumentation, electrical and mechanical engineering tasks).

CFIt’s and CFIa’s teams are specialized in process, mechanical, equipment, structural, piping, electricity, instrumentation, procurement and all type of on-site activities and are using state-of-the-art software programs. Using the 3D modelling, CFIt and CFIa develop all engineering activities allowing CFIh to propose an integrated solution for our customers’ projects. While the model is growing, other activities are progressing:

  • Detail equipment specifications, general arrangement drawings of equipment,
  • Equipment design,
  • Procurement activities,
  • Electricity and instrumentation activities.

Moreover, in Tunisia, CFIh has built its research and development (R&D) centre including a laboratory, a pilot plant and a documentation centre.

  • CFIh has settled a specific translation team for supporting its activities in Russia and CIS countries.
  • Via CFI Trading (Tunisia): CFIh is promoting sales of Proprietary Equipment, critical equipment and industrial components for CFIh processes.

Core Values

Safety

Health, safety and security of personnel involved in any step of a project, are considered as a priority by CFI Group. All safety aspects are integrated during process design and industrial development of the project. HAZOP, SIL studies and reviews are performed during engineering development.

Quality

CFI Group is committed to providing license, technology & know-how, engineering package, supervisory assistance services at site for blank tests and trial runs, pre-commissioning and commissioning activities, services for start-up, supply of proprietary equipment that satisfy our customers’ needs and expectations in safety, quality, reliability, competitiveness and in a timely manner while complying with all relevant requirements, legislation and standards. We are committed to continually improving how we deliver our services to our customer through the understanding of their requirements, application of consistent methodology, improving our processes through lessons learnt and following our processes in a disciplined manner.

Environment

CFI Group is committed to respect environment in all its projects to ensure the future of the next generations. CFI Group respects laws and regulations of the land and designs each plant in order to minimize effluents:

  • Gaseous effluents are treated and then rejected to the atmosphere after being minimized to ensure no effect on neighborhood of the plant or complex.

  • Zero liquid effluent policy is strictly followed and each plant has its integrated liquid or water treatment unit to avoid any contamination of soil or water. All nutrients are recovered and reused in the plant or complex to also ensure the highest profitability of the project.

CFI Group designs its own air and water treatment systems in chemicals, fertilizers and explosives processes.

Teamwork

CFI Group trust in the culture of “Working together”. CFI Group believes that an open culture characterized by mutual respect, sharing of ideas and a commitment to common goals contributes to the overall productivity of the group. Our philosophy is that each team member plays an important role in the organization by providing individual expertise and a distinctive perspective to each project that they are involved in.
