A history of expertise in Plastics engineering

The Ercé name has been associated with the French plastics industry for over 70 years. In the 1970s, the company established its reputation in technopolymer injection moulding at the heart of the Plastics Valley in Oyonnax (Rhône-Alpes region).

Historically present in the Automotive and Industrial sectors, the Ercé Plasturgie Group decided to diversify its activities in 2006 with a first external acquisition in the healthcare field. This resulted in the creation of Ercé Médical and the start of a whole new business line within a dynamic, exciting and innovation-rich sector.
