Arkema worldwide

A world player in specialty materials, Arkema employs nearly 7,300 people in France, either directly or through its subsidiaries (MLPC International, Rheology and Specialty Additives, and Bostik), representing 36% of the Group’s total workforce.

An entrepreneur in innovation, Arkema fosters interaction with its stakeholders and provides its customers with concrete solutions for addressing the challenges of an ever-changing world. The Group develops, produces, and markets products and materials with high added value, as well as adapted services across all industrial sectors.

Strong roots in France

Arkema France has 26 production sites and seven research and development centers throughout the country.

  • Adhesives Solutions, Advanced Materials, Coating Solutions, and Intermediates: Arkema’s three business segments, comprising several leading international product lines, are present in France.
  • The Group carries out approximately 45% of its production in France, and Arkema France generates sales representing 8% of Arkema’s worldwide turnover.

Arkema strives to maintain a strong foothold in France and, to this end, is carrying out several modernization and development projects at its Lannemezan, Mont, and Honfleur facilities. This commitment is reflected in the Group’s investments: on average, since 2006, nearly half of Arkema’s capital expenditure has been in France.
