Incendin

Incendin is the European market leader in various niches in both passive and active fire protection.

On the one hand, the company develops and produces eco-friendly flame retardant additives that are used in building & construction, transport and electronic applications. These are added to the core of the materials during the production processes for wood-based panels, insulation materials, textiles or plastics in order to prevent, suppress or delay (i.e. passive fire resistance) flames and smoke production caused by fire. On the other hand, Incendin also develops, produces and supplies fire extinguisher powders and water additives for water extinguishers, and fire extinguisher foams, for example, for the fire department and industrial use (i.e. active fire resistance). The company recently enlarged its product portfolio with fire resistant and acoustic coatings to be applied on smoke extract, pressurization and kitchen extract ductwork systems in the global arena.

Incendin brings a unique combination of technology, product knowledge and in-depth application expertise to each of these market segments.

Incendin's has its head office in Tisselt (Belgium) and has 4 production units, 4 application laboratories and exports to more than 70 countries worldwide.

When ambition meets ambition

Incendin's regulated final markets, macro-economic growth drivers such as Ecology and Fire Safety, a very strong focus on R&D, deep application expertise, tailor-made solutions combined with a comprehensive service approach, and an automated state-of-the-art production facility are the core ingredients of Incendin’s growth path.

By using eco-friendly fire retardant substances and an innovative business model which focuses on a more sustainable society, the company perfectly fits within our Sustainable Cities strategy.

Together, we build a leading company

With this partnership, we aim to further strengthen Incendin's market position, to enter into new markets and to expand the business internationally both by organic growth as by making acquisitions.

In an initial phase, we supported Incendin in various acquisition projects, PMI, and production and R&D integration. Since our entrance, Incendin realized 5 add-on acquisitions and made a large investment in a state-of-the-art production facility with the aim to centrally integrate production.
