Who are you?
Hi, I’m Clément FOURMAUX, founder and CEO of Sealester, a company that specialises in flexible packaging… but not the usual kind of flexible packaging you are used to: we develop and produce sustainable and innovative solutions.
What are the areas of expertise of your company?
The packaging we are working on are totally unique, not only because we have extremely creative teams, but thanks to the digital patented sealing technology we are developing. It allows us to imagine, test, and produce totally new flexible packaging concepts.
This new sealing process can work on a wide range of materials, with no limitations on the shape. Therefore during the prototyping step, we can test and learn in no time, and then launch a production batch from 1 to 10,000.
Then, traditional production tools can be adapted for larger batches if needed. But in the market of Beauty&Care, it is not always necessary.
We often make the parallel between our sealing technology for flexible packaging and 3D printing with injection moulding.
Our first sealing system will be on sale on Q4 2022.
Why is the region Atlantic France an asset for you?
We are based in La Ferté Bernard, an extremely dynamic city located in the countryside at the far east of Atlantic France. We are very lucky to settle here, because it is an area where there are lots of packaging companies like Serac, UniSleeve, Eliopack, and many others.
Only 2 hours drive away from Nantes and Paris, this is a strategic location to reach out customers and partners, and we are also greatly supported by the various local representatives of the Atlantic France region and Bpifrance.
Also, the ecosystem of emerging innovative companies is growing in Le Mans, thanks to various organisations like Le Mans Innovation and Réseau Entreprendre that helps to put everyone on the right track.
Finally, the cost and living conditions are just perfect for nature and outdoors activities lovers with the Perche regional park just next door.
