Since its foundation by Mr Vic Swerts, Soudal has been one of the most important European manufacturers of silicone sealants. In 1966 Mr Swerts bought a small company based at the Ossenmarkt in Antwerp and specialised in welding materials and the production of polyester putties for the car body repair. After two years the company moved to Turnhout, at the former market of Mr Swerts' parents. Mr Swerts invested heavily in a sophisticated vacuum mixer for the production of polyester putties and high quality silicone sealants. The first year in Turnhout, production output of silicone sealants was 5,000 cartridges. Since then the company has grown from a small family business to the multinational corporation it is today.
After some years the location became unsuitable for further expansion. At the Turnhout Industrial Estate a production hall of 2000m² was built in 1976.
In 1981, the offices also moved to Turnhout and Soudal NV is founded. From then growth really started to accelerate. The central position of Belgium proved ideal for stepping up export activities. In 1981 the share of export in turnover amounted to 25%. This share increased to 90% in 2004.
Soudal expanded to 11,000m² in 1985.
