From now on, Fibrolith Dämmstoffe GmbH will be a member of the SOPREMA Group.

A French parent company is not an entirely new thing for the innovative and continuously growing manufacturer of insulation and sound-absorbing panels. Before Fibrolith belonged to the Belgian Etex Group from 2012 to 2018, Fibrolith had been an affiliate for 19 years in a French corporate group, the Lafarge Group.

SOPREMA is a worldwide operating specialist for sealing and heat insulation of buildings and infrastructure buildings with a company history of more than 100 years.

Besides this core business, the SOPREMA Group pursues a growth strategy that it pushes ahead with innovative competence. For this, it relies on the expansion of its product range. The Group has overall about 7,000 employees in more than 90 countries.

We in Kempenich are very pleased that SOPREMA is making a commitment to Fibrolith and continues the business under the tried and proven leadership by Mr. Peter Graner and his management team. Good news for the employees because the site in the Vulkan-Eifel district is not at risk. All employees in administration and production have their jobs secured for the long term.

CEO Peter Graner: “We will carry on our product portfolio under our new parent company SOPREMA and continue the positive business development of the past few years.”
