A strong know-how since 1962


Founded in 1962 by Christian de Maillard, Technima France (formerly known as SOPPEC SAS) was initially a Charente-based company whose core business was to elaborate paints, wood maintenance products and varnishes for professional use.

On the eve of the 1990s, the company decided to focus on the design, manufacture and marketing of innovative marking systems in aerosols.

Initially created for forestry marking professionals, Technima France was carried by its patented safety spray cap : the TP cap, and the company soon became very famous and well known in the building and public works world.

In 2004, Thibault de Maillard, Managing Director since 1996, succeeded his father and became the owner of a constantly growing company that became the European leader in its markets.

After having opened a new logistics and storage site in 2009, 2010 marked a new stage for SOPPEC with a significant increase in its production capacity to support the growth of its domestic and export markets.

Since the summer of 2010, SOPPEC SAS (now called Technima France) doubled the production capacity of the Nersac site in Charente and created a new entity: the TECHNIMA Group.

Its race for innovation enabled the company to win the 2014 "Paris Aerosol & Dispensing Awards", which recognizes companies that promote technological innovations in aerosol packaging.

Since 1996, when SOPPEC has moved towards the activity of spray paint marking systems, the organic growth of the company is constantly increasing :

  • 2 operating sites
  • 5 product ranges
  • Sales force in more than 30 countries
  • More than 100 employees in France and abroad


 In 2020, the Technima group adopts a new brand identity, and SOPPEC SAS becomes Technima France


A brand you can trust


Analyses, qualitative tests, multiple controls, aging tests... Every product manufactured by Technima France benefits from our total process control, from design to market launch.

This traceability is what makes the spray paint manufacturer SOPPEC so trusted by professionals.



The creation of Soppec aerosols marking systems was the result of more than thirty years or research and testing. It was clearly a major innovation and most professional users agreed to say at that time it was a real improvement in their day to day use. 

Nowadays, Soppec keeps working hard to get the best possible products, carrying a daily special attention on 5 major points :

  • Durability
  • Product safety
  • Product range
  • Ease of application
  • Respect for the environment and man


Risk management

Technima France has been committed to a global quality, security and environmentally friendly approach for more than twenty years. This includes risk control for production sites as well as product users. 

Our "SEVESO" sites were built specifically for the storage of gases and solvents used in the aerosols. Every year, the products and the sites themselves are controlled several times by French law officers (Dreal, DGCCFR, SDIS, etc...). 


Customer satisfaction

Because we are very well aware of the importance of customer satisfaction, we keep working on improving product performances, on respecting health and safety of people, on developing new ideas and on detecting expectations and new requirement. 

At Soppec, customer satisfaction is more than a motto : It is a state of mind.
