Berkem Biosolutions is a department of Groupe Berkem born out of the desire to pool the qualifications of the Group’s subsidiaries by proposing an innovative range of enhancers for biocidal and phytosanitary products.
Berkem Biosolutions is the link between BERKEM, a company specialising in plant extraction, ADKALIS, an expert in the chemical formulation of (micro)emulsions and LIXOL, a major player in the field of alkyd resins.
As an innovative chemical company, Groupe Berkem operates in a highly-controlled regulatory environment. Each project is assessed and integrated in a responsible manner on a human, environmental and economic level.
Innovation is a driving force behind the Group’s business, and its human and material resources provide effective, high-quality solutions. Trends are anticipated by studying the evolution of the market, in order to improve and develop the tools and production capacities to enrich the company’s product and service offer.
Besides these technological and organisational assets, Groupe Berkem’s responsiveness mobilises all of its employees. The Group’s structural dimension, industrial tools, management style and control of its development, production and marketing chains are major strengths for the rapid supply of solutions and services to its target markets.
Berkem Biosolutions’ solutions are developed in laboratories and produced at Groupe Berkem’s historical industrial site in Gardonne (Dordogne). They benefit from the infrastructure, experience and expertise of the existing production teams.
