Europe at the heart of SiliCycle's development strategy

The European market is a key factor in SiliCycle's development strategy as a Canadian company with a global business.
SiliCycle has been operating in Europe since the early 2000s and has been intensifying its local efforts over the last five years, in particular through the creation of a logistics warehouse in Germany and the presence of resources in France (offices in Paris).

The company develops its sales directly with customers, but also through a network of distributors covering almost the entire European territory. To date, the European market represents 25% of the company's results, with an average annual growth rate of around 30%. This is the positive result of a portfolio of high-performance and innovative products. Moreover, the SiliCycle brand is gaining notoriety, and the reputation of the Quebec society is growing every day.

SiliCycle has sales in 21 of the 28 countries of Europe: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the Slovak Republic, with an annual growth of 32% in 2016.

This free trade initiative led by the Government of Quebec in 2007 which has been approved of by the Canadian Federal Government is by far the largest and most ambitious of Canada.
