Our history

During 40 years of innovation, expertise, and achievement, Novacel has been able to renew itself to meet each new challenges: industrial, commercial, and environmental. 

Throughout this evolution, the company has grown and has been able to work with partners who have become collaborators. 

1982 - Creation of Novacel

Twenty-two years after the Pricel Group launched its "Films and Adhesive Tapes" activity, it joined forces with the Chargeurs Group (formerly Chargeurs Réunis). This collaboration gave birth to Novacel in 1982. In the following years, Novacel kept growing by opening subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, and Spain.

1995 - Acquisition of Boston Tapes (Italy)

In 1995, Boston Tapes, an Italian company specialized in high-performance technical tapes and paper, joined Novacel. The company obtains the ISO 9002 certification (quality certification) in the same year. From 1998 to today, Boston Tapes has devoted many resources to technological innovation and has made new investments to increase production capacity and product quality. 

Nowadays, Boston Tapes is called Novacel Spa. 

2000 - Acquisition of IVEX PACKAGING

Novacel acquired IVEX PACKAGING, a specialty coater of performance products, now named Novacel Performance Coatings. 
NPC is now globally known for our high expertise in specific product coating. 

2016 - Acquisition of Main Tape (USA)

This combination of two key participants in the processing and protective films market strengthened Novacel's presence in North America.

In 2022, Main Tape officially became Novacel Americas.

2019 - Inauguration of TSC1

The launch of the TECHNO SMART COATING (TSC1) line is an achievement for Novacel. It highlights the company's ambition to deploy innovative technologies.

The TSC1 line is a real turning point for Novacel; it consolidates the respect of the industrial 4.0 standards and the company's projection towards a "zero emissions" objective.

2022 - New brand strategy for Novacel

The company, which used to comprise Novacel, Boston Tapes Commercial, Main Tape and Novacel Performance Coatings gather all its brands under just one: Novacel. 

Strong of a new strategy, a new logo and a new signature, Novacel reaffirms its goal to provide expertise, commitment & responsibility for people and planet.
