Geplast, extruder designer & creator of innovation

Specialising in thermoplastic extrusion, Geplast designs and manufactures profiles for building professionals in particular. It develops comprehensive product ranges for a wide range of markets: general industry, building, exterior and interior fittings, marine, agriculture, light housing, etc. As a designer-extruder, Geplast draws on its expertise across a wide range of brands, including Geplast Building, which brings together all its products for closures and joinery; Geplast Outdoor, which brings together our products for exterior fittings (gates and fences); Geplast Indoor, which offers top-of-the-range interior design solutions; and Geplast Engineering, which provides customised solutions for the production of made-to-measure technical profiles.

For more than 20 years, Geplast has enjoyed a remarkable growth. Founded by Gérard Grimault in 2003, the small company has carved out a place for itself as a key player in the extrusion industry. High-performance, responsive, but also concerned about its environmental impact, it has always drawn its DNA from innovation!

Extrusion of PVC profiles has been the company’s spearhead since it was founded. This expertise, based on the company’s 100% French know-how, has been enhanced by the extrusion of ABS materials and, a few years later, Loryza®, an innovative bio-sourced material made mainly from rice husks.

The company’s history began with 4 employees and just 5 extrusion lines installed in a 1,000m² building in the historic Mauges region, in Saint-André-de-la-Marche (49). In 2007, growing demand led the company to expand its premises and build a new 3,700m² building. Geplast now has 29 employees and 9 extrusion lines. Numerous other expansion phases have followed in recent years, the latest of which was inaugurated in July 2022. Geplast now has 18,000 m² of covered floor space, for a total surface area of 25,000 m², 30 extrusion lines and no fewer than 125 employees, with a turnover of €35 million for 2022.
