Acquisition of the Xylophene Industrie activity

The Berkem Group takes over the Xylophene Industrie activity from DYRUP detained by PPG AC France
It is official as of the 1st of February: the company PPG AC France sells its Xylophene Industrie activity to the Berkem Group, industrial SME from Aquitaine, specialised in fine chemistry.
By acquiring Xylophene Industrie, the Berkem Group, within its Formulation Pole represented by its Sarpap & Cecil Industries and S&C Construction subsidiaries, reinforces its commercial activities as well as its know-how.

Since 1964, these two companies of the Berkem Group have been specialising in the formulation and commercialisation of treatment, protection and maintenance products for materials such as wood, for building professionals. The anti-termite fight against termites before construction is another activity of the Formulation Pole acquired in 2009.
As such, the entire product offer is enlarged with the arrival with the sister brands signed by Xylophene Industrie.
A convergence of competences, a union of teams
By integrating professional solutions from Xylophene Industrie, the Berkem Group also welcomes its sales and administrative team.

The arrival of these collaborators allows a better national geographical coverage in order to dedicate even more attention and services to the customers of the Formulation Pole. Their competences and their know-how offers added value to those of the existing teams within the Group.

The manufacturing of the Xylophene Industrie products is carried out by the production teams of the Berkem Group at the industrial site in Gardonne (France, departement 24) awaiting the completion of the works of the production site in Gironde (France, Blanquefort near Bordeaux, departement 33).

Thus, this acquisition will allow increasing significantly the turnover of the Formulation Pole, making economies of scale on purchases, consolidating qualitatively the network of customers and completing the product offer.
