For more than 30 years now, SODEPAC International, the inventor of the humidity absorber, has not stopped developing a multitude of patent-pending and patented products. Sodepac is Europe`s largest producer of humidity absorbers for its brands (Seko and Humidivore) and private brands. Sodepac also offers products for protecting merchandise from humidity, marketed under the brand SEKODRY. In 1965, Jean Vasseur perfected an absorption system to counter humidity in the sugar industry. Although initially intended for protecting merchandise in the field of industry, it is obvious that this technique satisfies a genuine need for provide individuals: the first patented humidity absorber was launched in 1973 by the inventor of the process.
Since then the company has not stopped changing, investing every year in product research and development, and in new production tools.
The plant located in Hallennes-lez-Haubourdin in northern France has been enlarged on a regular basis: a new ultra-modern storage area will be in service in 2011, bringing the total surface area of the plant to 6,000 m2.
Sodepac employs 45 people (full-time employees).
Sodepac International is still a family-run company. Gérard Vasseur has been the Vice President and General Manager since 2003, and general operational management has been entrusted to Pascal Lenglet.
