Safic-Alcan in general

Safic-Alcan represents 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.



Safic-Alcan’s plastics division is focused on distributing speciality products and offers a broad range of additives for improving the properties of all plastic resins. These additives are mostly used for masterbatches and polymer/compound production as well as for end users needing to improve their product properties. At the same time, Safic-Alcan distributes a full range of custom-made compounds for automotive, appliance, cosmetic, household and industrial applications.

Our products are tailored to our customers’ needs so their application can deliver the required performance.
