Flexico® Group’s history from 1950 to now

1950: Birth of Flexico® and the Zip Français
The company was founded in 1950 by Mr Etienne Moulin. Drawn to a simple idea: extruding a plastic closure system wich is shaped like spaghetti and closes everything.
1962: Construction of the Hénonville plant
The company grew, the Hénonville plant was built and we witnessed the creation of the Minigrip®. The resealable bag with one or two red stripes that has become known and recognised for its quality and French manufacturing.

1977: Creation of the Maignelay plant
As the company grew, it became necessary to build a new factory to accommodate the converting operations of the extruded polypropylene film in Hénonville.
