Today 16,000 colleagues across the globe celebrated Aliaxis’ 15th anniversary!
Whilst the individual Aliaxis business units benefit from centuries of expertise, today was a very special day in the history of Aliaxis – the first time of a celebration of the unification of the different businesses as Aliaxis.
Aliaxis history started at the beginning of the 20th century in Belgium and in the north of France. Two families decided to join forces and progressively built a large group of pipe manufacturers. Over the years, the company expanded internationally and developed its activities into the plastics sector with the acquisition of Nicoll in 1980, Marley UK in 1999, and Glynwed Pipe Systems UK (including IPEX, Friatec, GPS, Philmac, etc.) in 2001. In 2003, the plastics activities had become so important that the group decided to create a new company. Aliaxis was born on 18 June 2003 – exactly 15 years ago!
