A multi-local and international network

Starting as a distributor, ADDEV Materials developed its French network. It then invested to build industrial capacities in a number of converting and custom cutting technologies, while developing technical know-how, enabling it to serve its customers with real added value.


Today, the ADDEV Materials team is pursuing a policy of external growth in two major regions – Europe and North America – in order to strengthen its international reach.

“We have grown continuously, embracing our ambition to be close to our partners. Today, the group has more than 500 employees in 19 entities, who really drive the pace of our business, who take our customers’ satisfaction seriously, who are close to our markets, who grow as our environment evolves and most importantly do all this as a team.”
