Meet our Founder, the Man from the Future

Marcel Cover

Logoplaste was founded by Marcel de Botton. His personal history intertwines with the business at every step.

The world was different in 1976, but Marcel de Botton's vision is more current than ever. Always a pioneer in improving quality and reducing plastic's environmental impact, Marcel was the mind and heart behind our Wall to Wall embedded manufacturing model.

Like many great things, the idea was born from a mix of survival instinct, ingenuity, and a very clear vision of the future.
