Since its foundation by Mr Vic Swerts, Soudal has been one of the most important European manufacturers of silicone sealants. In 1966 Mr Swerts bought a small company based at the Ossenmarkt in Antwerp and specialised in welding materials and the production of polyester putties for the car body repair. After two years the company moved to Turnhout, at the former market of Mr Swerts’ parents. Mr Swerts invested heavily in a sophisticated vacuum mixer for the production of polyester putties and high quality silicone sealants. The first year in Turnhout, production output of silicone sealants was 5,000 cartridges. Since then the company has grown from a small family business to the multinational corporation it is today.
