ViscoTec recently announced that it has opened a branch in Mérignac, Bordeaux, France. ViscoTec’s fifth subsidiary worldwide, the new sales, service, and support organization will distribute and support both ViscoTec and preeflow products. The goals of the subsidiary are reportedly to strengthen the company’s presence in Europe and expand its sales structure in the region while opening up the French market. ViscoTec also reports that it sees great potential in the French market, particularly in the cosmetics, automotive, and aerospace industries.

Christophe Lalanne has been named branch manager and will serve as the company’s local contact. He has a technical degree with a focus on chemistry and specialization in bonding and adhesives. From 2007-2011, Lalanne worked in sales and primarily focused on applications and solutions in the field of bonding. Since 2011, he has been employed as product manager for applications in the adhesives sector. 

“We have known Christophe for a long time, and we trust him,” said Georg Senftl, managing director of ViscoTec. “We are sure that he will be able to bring ViscoTec to the top in France and establish ViscoTec as a synonym for dispensing technology there.”
