Our history

The French manufacturer PROTAVIC INTERNATIONAL specializes in resins, adhesives and inks for the electronics industry.

PROTAVIC was born when PROTEX INTERNATIONAL CEO Robert Moor decided to produce in-house end products. To avoid being in competition with his own customers, Robert Moor chose to focus on electronics, a field that didn’t use a lot of PROTEX INTERNATIONAL chemicals. For almost 25 years the group has been perfecting the art of formulation, while PROTAVIC uses products directly developed by PROTEX INTERNATIONAL.

The integration has proven successful. Organic growth and external acquisitions have made PROTAVIC an important part of PROTEX INTERNATIONAL.

PROTAVIC components are now found in multiple products in many industries including aerospace, optics and automotive.

PROTAVIC technical expertise spans three continents, in China, South Korea, the United States and Europe.
