Our history

Operating in the European market for more than 50 years, SEKISUI owns a lot of experience. Since the 1960s, SEKISUI has continuously expanded in Europe and spread the philosophy that the seven SEKISUI founders had in mind when they established the company in Japan in 1947: to improve the lives of all people by making efficient use of plastics.

The first subsidiary in Europe was founded when SEKISUI CHEMICAL GMBH was established as the representative organization of SEKISUI’s European operations in Germany.

SEKISUI ALVEO AG was founded in Switzerland as the basis for further growth in Europe.

Further companies were established in the Netherlands, such as SEKISUI ESLON B.V. in 1974 and SEKISUI S-LEC B.V. in 1996.

Further companies joined the SEKISUI family: SEKISUI ALVEO BS GMBH and SEKISUI SPECIALITY CHEMICALS EUROPE S.L. in 2009.


SEKISUI EUROPE B.V. was announced as official regional headquarters of SEKISUI in Europe.
