The most valuable synergies within Recticel could be described as follows :

Strong technology synergies throughout the organization

- Sharing of experience and know-how in both foam manufacturing and converting leading to cross-fertilization throughout the organization

High level of complementarity between business lines

- Broad supplier-customer internal relationship and sharing of production sites between Bedding and Flexible Foams leads to faster innovation
- Strong product synergy between Insulation and Flexible Foams for acoustic combined with thermal insulation

Central purchasing leading to increased purchasing power

- Centralized purchasing organization leveraging the size of the Group
- Purchasing synergies particularly realized in the sourcing of chemical raw materials (polyols and isocyanates)

Recycling within the different production processes leading to additional benefits
