Sioen Industries is the world market leader in coated technical textiles, the European market leader in industrial protective clothing, a niche specialist in fine chemicals and one of the biggest global players in the processing of technical textiles into semi-manufactured goods and technical end products.

Three divisions under one roof:

The Coating Division specialises in the integrated coating of technical textiles and controls the entire production process, from the extrusion of yarns (spinning), via the weaving of technical fabric and the production of pigment pastes and granulates through to coating with various materials. This vertical integration represents a distinct competitive advantage.

The Coating division is also responsible for the processing of coated fabrics and PVC film. The division covers all the group’s ‘heavy duty product’ manufacturing activities: pond liners, tent kadors, airbags, filters, roller shutters, and so on. This is another area in which Sioen is a major global player.

The Apparel Division designs and produces high-quality protective clothing for both industrial and recreational applications. Sioen has a reputation for quality and flexibility.

Sioen Chemicals Division is a fast, flexible, service oriented supplier of tailor-made products:

-pigment pastes, for colouring PU and PVC coatings, epoxies, acrylic resins and silicones.
-granules for injection moulding, extrusion (plate-fibre-foil) and blow moulding.
