Who are we?

STREIT Groupe specializes in the machining, assembly and co-development of mechanical components, most of are made out of cast iron, aluminium or steel made from raw materials produced by foundries and forges. It began as a family-run company founded in 1968 in the east of France and is now a subsidiary of the Taiwanese foundry holding company, Mei Ta Group.

STREIT Groupe’s added value is its capacity to provide its customers with high quality, global solutions, starting from the initial concept through the production phase and right up to final delivery. In order to fully satisfy our customers, we strive to continually improve their performance and competitiveness and to foster innovation. STREIT Groupe’s industrial know-how enables it to adapt to and undertake either small- or large-scale production of parts.

For each project, STREIT Groupe coordinates the input provided by suppliers and partners to propose ready-to-use solutions. Although we are specialized in machining, we can also provide a host of other services, such as: assembling, washing, checking air and watertightness and cleanliness levels, traceability and logistics.

During co-development phases, STREIT Groupe draws on the expertise of its Technical Center, where our R&D engineers hone the quality of concepts in close collaboration with clients. Our prototypes, tooling and special-purpose machines are developed there, too.

After setting up factories in Serbia and Slovakia at the beginning of this century, STREIT Groupe continued to accompany its parent company, Mei Ta Group, in its quest for international growth, notably in North America. This led to the decision to construct a new production site in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico.  Building began, under Mei Ta Group’s general supervision, in 2019.
