In January, the Italian company Acquaflex set up its French subsidiary, Acquaflex France SAS, with headquarters in Bordeaux. It is managed by Ludovic Dudziak, who has nearly 40 years of experience in the paper industry, acquired with renowned suppliers. He is therefore perfectly familiar with the French paper industry. Founded in 1997, Acquaflex specialises in the supply of chemical technologies for the paper industry. It already had a subsidiary in Poland and has been active for years in paper mills in the Iberian zone, Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
In France, Acquaflex specialises in secondary treatments: conditioning of clothings, cleaning of fabrics and felts, passivation of drying cylinders and various treatments (anti-scaling, fresh water, biocides, etc.). Ludovic Dudziak already has the support of two engineers specialising in paper chemistry who are responsible for carrying out studies and audits. Determined to establish itself in the market and to provide a high quality service to its customers, Acquaflex France plans to strengthen its structure in the short term with the addition of technicians. Two sectors are particularly targeted: packaging paper and board and tissue.
