The company was founded in 1964 by Guy Servé and from the start was mainly active in the production of furnishings and lamination.

Over the years, the company's activities have evolved towards industry and protective packaging. Nowadays, its activities are mainly geared to the production of special wrapping.

It is the market leader in Belgium for coloured storage foam (EVA and PE). After 50 years of development, SIPLA remains a company that is constantly looking into new applications in its preferred field of activity - polyurethane, polyethylene, EVA and cellular rubber foams.

Environmental commitment
SIPLA is a modern company and in June 2011 was granted ISO 14001 certification. The company's aim is to include environmental considerations in all its strategic decisions.

This choice to adopt a greener attitude has already been realised by implementing the following:
- Improving waste management in order to reduce the environmental impact;
- Installation of solar panels to cover 25% of electricity requirements;
- Renovation of the lighting system to reduce consumption by 40%;
- Improving the working conditions of staff including protective gear, working clothes, training in the environmental impact and raising awareness;
- Management of hazardous products and installation of special recovery tanks.

Reducing the impact on the planet. Not just words but action. There is no doubt that in future the ISO 14001 standard will be a basic ethical objective for all of SIPLA's choices.
