Biesterfeld Plastic takes over French rubber distributor SMPC

Biesterfeld says the family-owned company will serve as an addition to the already established plastics and speciality chemicals business of the Biesterfeld Group in France and will expand the existing business operations significantly. Furthermore, the investment adds diversification to business activities throughout Europe as it leads to cooperation with existing suppliers in this new business area for Biesterfeld France. The company also plans to establish this new product range on a Europe-wide basis. In France, it employs around 40 workers, who together generate a yearly turnover of more than EUR 70 million.

SMPC has over 80 years of experience within the distribution of rubber as well as specialised additives for the rubber industry. The company has a yearly turn­over of approximately EUR 10 million as well as eleven employees who will join the Biesterfeld team. The portfolio includes a large range of rubber polymers and additives: fillers, plasticisers, accelerators, vulcanising agents, protecting agents, and speciality chemicals for the rubber industry. SMPC represents approximately 60 suppliers such as ExxonMobil Chemical, Croda, Total Fluides, Dongjin Semichem Co., Kolon, Arkema and Solvay.
