History

Guy Demarle


Since it was established in 1965 by M. Guy Demarle, Demarle SA has been using new technology to develop original non stick products for the food industry : these include the first non-stick baguette trays, Silpat® pastry mats and preformed Silform® mats.

 

Sold to Lesaffre (first yeast producer in the world) in 1985, Demarle SA established its head office in the industrial area of Wavrin, nearby Lille in 1989. Under the leadership of M. Gérard Blin, the company’s growth was accelerated onto the international stage, especially because of launching the revolutionary new concept Flexipan®.

The subsidiary Demarle Inc. was established in the United States in 1993.

 

Then in 1994, M. Jacquelin took ownership of the company.
