Published on 2007-07-02. Author : SpecialChem

As part of the ongoing transformation of its organization and of its drive to boost its competitiveness, Arkema has inaugurated its new headquarters in the Défense Ouest office complex in Colombes, Hauts-de Seine, France.

Eager to affirm its desire for change and its commitment to a significant reduction in its real estate costs, Arkema decided to relocate its historical headquarters from Paris La Défense to Colombes, within the Défense Ouest office complex. The design of the offices, working areas and common parts is in keeping with the Arkema senior management’s desire to offer its employees a modern, functional and friendly working environment.

The move, on June 19th, is one of the three components of the Company’s plan for the future of its headquarters, presented in November 2006, alongside optimizing the central organizations and transferring the support functions of some business units to their industrial sites.

A global chemical player, Arkema consists of 3 coherent and related business segments: Vinyl Products, Industrial Chemicals, and Performance Products. Present in over 40 countries with 17,000 employees, Arkema achieves sales of 5.7 billion euros. With its 6 research centers in France, the United States and Japan, and internationally recognized brands, Arkema holds leadership positions in its principal markets.
