Inventor of the tubular motor for rolling shutters in 1959

In 1959, SIMU invented the tubular motor for rolling shutters, a technology which has since become the market standard. Since then, we have continued to expand our knowledge, our expertise of the market and our dedication to our customers’ activities.

With 70 years of experience, SIMU has become a name brand in France and on the international stage! As a subsidiary and number 2 brand of the Somfy group, we design, manufacture and market motors, control systems and accessories for residential, industrial, commercial and solar protection closures.

Our customers benefit from our expertise and innovative technical solutions for rolling shutters, awnings, screens, and rolling doors in retail or industrial buildings.
