History

BORFLEX history dates back to 1987, with the takeover of the BORFLEX Rouen (Upper Normandy), which originally produced rubber conveyor belts. In 1996, the acquisition of an industrial production site in Cherbourg (France) was the first milestone of BORFLEX expansion. BORFLEX Cherbourg develops and produces rubber solutions for the nuclear sector, for the OEMs, operators and contractors. In 1999, BORFLEX acquired BORFLEX Rhône-Alpes in the Lyon area. The site develops and produces roll rubber covering solutions for the printing sector (rotogravure, flexography, label printing, offset, paperboard and paper-based packaging, etc.), the food industry and other sectors. In 2003, BORFLEX Group created BORFLEX Rubber, a production facility dedicated to the production of rubber compounds for the rubber industry. In 2007, BORFLEX acquired BORFLEX Corvol, specialized in: sealing systems for comfort & safety (window seals, door seals, mainly for buses and trucks), extruded sealing profiles for the construction market and specific solutions for the industry. In 2010, BORFLEX Group continued to grow through the acquisition of Cafac-Bajolet, a industrial group of 3 factories in France: Hermes (Picardy), Verdun (Lorraine) and Lille (Nort-Pas-de-Calais). These 3 production sites are considered as major players in several business areas: railway, water and waste industry, metal industry, power, marine, chemical and petrochemicals, construction, agriculture, etc. With this acquisition, BORFLEX accelerated its expansion, offering a wide range of expertise and know-how in the rubber industry. Today, BORFLEX Group has 200 skilled employees, 8 production sites in France, and supplies rubber solutions to more than 3000 customers in over 30 countries across the world. Thanks to a diversification strategy based on R&D, innovation and on international development, BORFLEX proclaims its goal of becoming the reference for the production of value added rubber components over the years thanks to its ability to respond to the market for rubber and polyurethane technical components. notre-histoire photo-gros-melangeurgabarit-pieces-caoutchouc-mesure-01produit-garnissage-cylindres-01
