Algi Equipments is the French first manufacturer of lubricating materials and workshop equipment to industry, transport, civil engineering and agriculture.


Founded in 1923 in Lyon, under the name F. Durand SARL, the company changed its name following its acquisition by Jean Lacroix in 1932 and his relocation to Scionzier (Haute Savoie). 100% family owned company, Algi Equipments is now managed by the grandchildren of Jean and the 4th generation joined the company in 2015.

Historically specialized in the bar turning of cycle parts, Algi Equipments activities have evolved gradually from the 1950s to move towards lubrication materials.

Algi firstly proposed manual lubrication material, including the famous lever grease guns "Heavy duty" which 13,000 units are still manufactured each year in our factory. The range of products is then expanded in the 90s, with the appearance of pneumatic distribution and garage equipment.

In 2001 the company acquires the lubrication activities of Tecalemit. The company, founded in 1922, is the inventor of under pressure lubrication with coupler..

During the early 2000s, the production of precision turned parts for activities other than lubrication is growing increasingly. In 2003 Algi takes a major step in its development : The company is split into two separate entities:

  • Algi Equipzemnts, in charge of the commercialization of lubrication equipments among a network of professional distributors and large corporates.
  • Algi Industrie, specialized in the traditional or numerical bar turning, cutting and machining on special machines. The company moved a few kilometers from its historic plant with 60 machines and more than 40 people in a new facility of over 3,000 m², better adapted to the production of parts and subassemblies. In addition to manufacturing products of Algi brand, the company works for many clients in the automotive industry, electrical or consumer goods.
