Le mot du Directeur Général

"Valeo's sales growth accelerated in the third quarter of 2013. The Group recorded excellent figures for the original equipment market (up 13%, 11 percentage points higher than global automotive production), as well as in the aftermarket (up 10%) and demonstrated its capacity for balanced growth, outpacing the market in all regions across the globe. These results reflect the gradual entry into production of the high order intake recorded by the Group over the last three years and the strength of Valeo's growth model."

Jacques Aschenbroich,
Valeo's Chief Executive Officer
