Deceuninck: Profile business with Atlantem

Belgian window and building profiles manufacturer Deceuninck has bought the in-house profile extrusion business of Atlantem, a subsidiary of French company building products company Groupe VM Matériaux.
The deal, for an undisclosed figure, gives Deceuninck a seven-year exclusive profile supply contract to Atlantem’s door and window manufacturing operation at Noyal-Pontivny, in Brittany. Atlantem manufactures around 100,000 PVCu windows each year. According to Deceuninck, the business will help its French subsidiary meet its target of breaking the EURO 60m sales barrier; sales for 2001 stood at EURO52.5m.

With global sales of EURO 350.6m in 2001, Deceuninck claims to be the world’s third largest manufacturer of PVC building profiles. The company, which is headquartered at Hooglede-Gits in Belgium, employs almost 1,700 people across its 20 sales and manufacturing subsidiaries.
