Social Engagement & Sponsorship

VTI received $3,000 in tuition donations, as well as product donations to be utilized in its plumbing program. EDISON, NJ — Saniflo USA announced yearly tuition and product donations to Virginia Technical Institute (VTI).

Pledging to donate $3,000 per year in tuition fees, Saniflo said its contributions will cover a semester for two students or two semesters for one student each year. 

“Now more than ever, industry manufacturers need to invest in building the skilled-trades workforce — and supporting institutions like Virginia Technical is the key to making that happen,” says Regis Saragosti, CEO of SFA Saniflo North America.

 Rooted in the company’s heightened desire to do more, Saniflo USA, a division of Group SFA, has donated to Feeding America to provide 6000 meals to families in need. One dollar helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. The company also donated to Meals on Wheels providing 100 meals to those in need.

SFA Saniflo, the world leader in above-the-floor macerating and grinding toilets and drain pumps, plans to donate to both organizations again later this year to support National Hunger Awareness Month in September.

“We believe in the power of food to nourish communities across the United States,” says Regis Saragosti, CEO of SFA Saniflo North America. “With millions of Americans without access to nutritious meals, we must help however we can.”

Saniflo USA, a division of Group SFA, the world leader in above-the-floor macerating and grinding toilets and drain pumps, has joined the Green Business Bureau, a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses. By committing to going green, Saniflo continues to explore methods and practices that contribute to the goal of being environmentally and ethically responsible.

Saniflo North America announced a partnership with Plumbers Without Borders (PWB) as a Mission Supporter Sponsor. The ultimate goal is to support the group's mission to connect volunteer plumbers and industry resources with organizations working to increase access to safe water and sanitation worldwide.

In 2021, SFA Group donated Three AquaHome Systems in Cambodia

"Remote villages in Siem Reap, Cambodia have no electricity or clean water source. In addition, the laterite roads make transportation difficult especially during the rainy season. Waterborne illnesses are common among children and they lack proper medication because of their distance from the health center.

SFA partnered with Planet Water Foundation to install an AquaHome in three of the poorest households in Cambodia. This solution brings clean water and lighting into homes for the first time and is accompanied by Planet Water's hygiene education program to help improve the living conditions of the families.

""We always suffer from diarrhea and skin rashes because we have no clean water for drinking and hand-washing. My children are thin and unhealthy and often miss school because they are ill. With the Aqua-Home, they will now have a better chance to be healthy and to perform better in school."" Ly Leat, Father of three

2020 - Just as in the past years, SFA once again supported the organisation "Une Villa en Urgence" on World Toilet Day with product donations

Established in 2017, Une Villa en Urgence creates emergency housing for the homeless by recycling and re-furbishing refrigerated bus trailers at the end of their commercial life. This year, SFA is pleased to announce that we are doubling our donation in order to support the association’s goal of building around one hundred homes. SFA donating 10 Sanicompact 43, 10 Sanishower and 10 Kineprime (shower cubicles).
