The Abzac Group is one of the first world producers of carboard tubes and cores, angleboard and fibre drums. European leader of the production of fiber drums intended for industrial goods. The head office of the group is located in the South-west of France, close to Bordeaux, in Abzac (the Gironde).
The activity of the group is diversified in 3 divisions:
Today, the Abzac group carries out a turnover of 85 million euros. It counts 500 employees in the world, distributed on 12 production sites in Europe (France, Spain, Romania), and in North America (Canada, the United States, Mexico). These factories are supplemented by partnerships/licenses in the United Kingdom, in Germany and in Mexico for the production of barrels fiber.
The Abzac group belongs to the d’Anglade family. The foundation of the group goes back to 1928, date on which Pierre-Antoine d’ Anglade creates the Abzac Company which manufactures cardboard cores for paper industries of South-west. As of the decade 1980, for better affirming a policy of growth, a double diversification is undertaken:
This diversification of the activity is organized thanks to a strategy based on the proximity. Abzac gives itself means of being geographically close to its customers and the markets thanks to his factory network of production. A professional approach, based on listening, the experience and know-how allows the development of specific solutions adapted to the requirements of the industrial users of cartboard tubes and corners and fibre drums, etc
Today, the corporation preserved its family shareholding. Since the beginning of the years 2000, the 3rd generation of Anglade manages the group. The supervisory board is chaired by Jean-Louis d’ Anglade, son of the founder.
