“ Proxis Développement, an industrial group headquartered and based in Levallois-Perret, is a human-sized family business firmly rooted in France.

We are an ETI, medium-sized enterprise, where more than 550 men and women of diverse nationalities work, strengthening our international culture. Our size equates to a German “Mittelstand” company, often cited as the key to industrial dynamism in Germany.

We develop, manufacture and market products that meet the needs of 4 types of industrial customers in the perfumery, water treatment, and food ingredient sectors, as well as pharmaceutical active ingredients. We also support our customers by offering them services that are inextricably linked to the supply of our products (statutory regulations, marketing, logistics, maintenance, product customisation, etc.).

As a result of the diversification and strong cross-fertilisation of our activities, we are consolidating our R&D strategy using a continuous innovation process.

Proxis Développement is a family business that intends to remain so in all aspects.

We have adopted a pragmatic development model based on our accumulated knowledge of the industrial sectors in which we are present. It is a model that we consider to be robust and agile, because it meets the requirements of the markets in which we operate and allows us to adapt to rapid changes in the macroeconomic environment.

We rely on strong financial resources, while at the same time having very little debt. For several decades, we have consistently applied a sustained, long-term, selective and rigorous investment strategy, which serves our development ambition and allows us to maintain our profitable growth model.

Almost all of our achieved results are reinvested in organic projects and external growth operations. To consolidate our external growth, we specifically adopt an acquisition policy dictated by innovative technologies.

For companies that have already joined our group, we have observed that the right balance between autonomy and participation in a common industrial project, are the perfect ingredients for successful integration.”


Arnaud MOOR, President of the Proxis Développement group.
