Our timber treatment product formulation story

Ever since 1964, our mission has been to develop, produce and sell protection solutions for timber and its derivatives and for hard materials.
When it was founded the company was initially called “Sarpap”, which was short for “Société d’Application et de Recherches de Produits Anti-Parasitaires de droguerie et d’entretien”
The Gardonne industrial site in the Dordogne region of France was already producing the first timber protection products.

50 years later the company has diversified. To best meet demand from its markets, today the company has restructured itself into separate companies which are grouped together under the Groupe Berkem Holding.
