Over the course of the last century, the Lhoist Group, which began in Belgium and then expanded into France, has progressively acquired genuine international status.
Our Group's visibility has risen markedly over the last decades. Most of our Group's international growth has occurred in Europe and America.
As industrialists, we devote all our talents and efforts to ensuring continued expansion, guided by a sustained research and investment policy, and strong technological progress.
Today, our companies total more than 5,500 people, all motivated by the desire to satisfy the increasingly varied demands of our customers, who are all confident of our mutual success. Industrial globalisation means that our customers are becoming more international. It also means that they require their suppliers to be increasingly creative, efficient and dynamic.
Our challenge is to remain the best in the eyes of our customers and to prolong experience that dates back over a century.
