Industrial union between high-performance technical films

Deal Flash

Prochimir SAS, a specialist in high-performance thermobonding and technical films, has joined forces with the giant Arkema, a leading designer of innovative materials and solutions.


The market for technical and adhesive films is growing steadily, partly due to the increasing penetration of plastics in the automotive, construction and textiles industries. This growth trend benefits from environmental factors and industrial efficiency that suggest good prospects for businesses in the market.

Over the past seven years, we have focused on technical films, and our efforts have been concentrated on the North American market. Our customers now want us to support them in every corner of the globe, which is a new challenge! In order to achieve this objective, we have chosen to develop a global industrial structure. Throughout the process, we have benefited from the professionalism, commitment and efficiency of the Oaklins team. Proud of the progress we have made, we are now happy to join the Arkema Group. This major French industrial group will provide us with the necessary support to pursue our growth. VIANNEY LESCROART, PRESIDENT, PROCHIMIR SAS, FRANCE
