Safic-Alcan, a worldwide speciality chemicals distributor

Safic-Alcan represents more than 100 state-of-the-art manufacturers around the world. Headquartered in Paris La-Défense (France), the Company has a network of 25 offices and warehouses strategically located in Europe, Middle East, Asia and America. Today, more than 84% of Safic-Alcan’s turnover is done out of France.

Historical leader on the rubber market, the distribution group has expanded dramatically over the years to cover such markets as coatings, adhesives, thermoplastics, lubricants, detergency, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals.

Moreover, the Company is constantly seeking new acquisition opportunities to reinforce its market shares mainly in Eastern Europe and in regions where there is a strong growth in demand for speciality chemicals.

Following the LMBO of January 2015, the Management and employees of Safic-Alcan took control of the Company. Today Safic-Alcan is considered as the sole independent European chemical distributor with exclusively French investments having international market coverage.
