Profoam Storage

OUR STORY

Formed in 2003 by a group of experts in the field of fire-fighting foams, PROFOAM draws on the extensive knowledge of the dedicated teams at Sabo Italy and Sabo France, and most notably on the experience and expertise of Dr Attilio Morandi in the field of chemistry and the formulation of foam concentrates.

This technical capability is allied with the extensive infrastructure and advanced production technology of the world renown PROCHIMICA group.

With a production plant located at the heart of the European continent, PROFOAM can quickly and efficiently distribute its products globally via Milan airport or from any of the nearby seaports.

Based in Paris to oversee global sales, Profoam International has a team of experienced specialists ready to assist and advise our international customers and end users.

PRODUCTION PLANT

Driven by the need to supply foams quickly and often in an emergency, substantial infrastructure investment has resulted in a state-of-the-art production facility designed to fully meet the market requirements.

Laboratories and fire-test field facilities are situated close to the production unit and a well-equipped Research and Development Department and training rooms complete the production, control and after-sales facilities, giving professional end users the quality assurance they need where matters of safety and reliability are paramount.
