The Soprema Group
An independent family group since 1908, SOPREMA has established itself as one of the world’s leading waterproofing companies and also as a specialist in roofing, thermal and acoustic insulation. Over the years, the SOPREMA Group has grown and diversified around the world by integrating complementary activities into its original business: waterproofing.
SOPREMA offers a wide range of reinforced synthetic membranes and other complementary products for the installation and maintenance of swimming pools under the name SOPREMAPOOL.
With a workforce of more than 9,200 people and a turnover of more than €3 billion, SOPREMA has a global commercial industrial footprint with 81 factories, more than 100 operating subsidiaries and a presence in 90 countries, as well as 17 highly focused sustainable development R&D centres and 22 training centres in eight countries.
What do we contribute as Soprema?
Research and development play a fundamental role in our company aimed at improving production and installation techniques. The development of new technologies is essential to meet the future demands of the pool construction industry. Our products are rigorously tested before being certified as meeting the most demanding performance parameters.
At SOPREMA we are fully committed to sustainability and we work towards a sustainable construction model focusing on two main points: manufacturing energy efficient products and adopting a closed and circular life cycle construction model that allows the reuse of construction waste. A renewed vision of construction with a more environmentally responsible and friendly approach is needed.
This is why our pool membrane production plants have ISO 14001 certification for environmental management systems, taking responsibility for recycling waste to give it a second life.
Furthermore, all SOPREMA plants are ISO 9001 certified. Some are also ISO 14001, ISO 16001 and ISO 18001 certified.
