News | June 11, 2024 | By:

Over the past 40 years, Quebec-based Solmax has established itself as the global leader in geosynthetic products. Over that time, geosynthetics have grown into an essential material for constructing sustainable infrastructure. Today, Solmax stands as a robust company, poised for a new cycle of growth.

In this spirit, Solmax has set ambitious targets, adopting a new strategy to leverage its position as an industry leader. This strategy focuses on innovation, optimizing operations, and exploring new opportunities.

In this context, the president and CEO, Jean-Louis Vangeluwe, along with the board of directors, have agreed to organize a leadership transition to bring fresh perspectives to the organization’s activities and its future.

With a shared sense of pride in the company’s achievements and confidence in its future, this leadership transition is approached with a spirit of collaboration. Vangeluwe will remain with Solmax until the end of 2024, allowing the board of directors ample time to conduct an international recruitment process to find his successor.

The company’s founder, Jacques Côté, and the board members extend their gratitude to Vangeluwe for his dedication in guiding Solmax through significant changes. His leadership has enabled the company to seize new opportunities as the geosynthetics industry continues to evolve on a global scale. Learn more about Solmax here.
