Profiles of Seven French Technical Textile Companies
published in Issue 43, 4th quarter 2000
The vigour and diversity of the French technical textiles sector is well illustrated by the seven company profiles included in this report. Laroche is a builder of machinery for the sector, while Ferrari, Porcher Industries, Rubans Gallant, Dubar-Warneton, Paul Bonte, and Tissavel all manufacture technical textile products.
The companies which make up the French technical textiles sector vary considerably in size. On the one hand, small to medium sized enterprises constitute by far the largest group of companies producing technical textiles in France. Many are private, family-owned businesses which have re-invented themselves after a history in silk, cotton or wool. However, the sector also includes a much smaller group of companies which form part of larger textile conglomerates - although most lead a fairly independent existence within those organisations. The profiles of companies presented in this report - with sales ranging from Fr35 mn (US$5 mn) to Fr4.2 bn - are representative of both groups.
Two key factors have helped the technical textiles industry in France to progress. One is the way companies have been prepared to cooperate in a trusting environment with the aim of exchanging information, carrying out joint marketing exercises, and finding new applications for technical developments. The other is the support given to companies in the sector by the Institut Français du Textile et de l’Habillement.
