History of the SOPPEC brand
Created in the 1960s by Christian de Maillard, SOPPEC was (and still is) a family business that manufactured paints, varnishes and wood maintenance products.
In 1990, the SOPPEC company focused on the production and sale of highly innovative aerosol marking paints.
Initially aimed at forestry marking experts, SOPPEC paints soon attracted the attention of construction workers following the invention of an innovative and patented safety cap.
In 2004, Thibault de Maillard followed his father and took the head of a company in constant progression, becoming European leader in its sector and whose innovation and versatility were the key elements of its progress.
The year 2010 was marked by the increase in industrial equipment, essential to the maintenance and development of the company and its activities in France and abroad.
This year was also marked by an increase in the production capacity of the French site which was doubled.
In 2014, our insatiable quest for innovation was greatly rewarded with the "Paris Aerosol & Dispensing Award".
The ADF Paris awards reward companies that bring and highlight technological innovations in the packaging of aerosol and dispensing systems.
