100 YEARS AND A NEW FACTORY
What better gift than a new production
tool to celebrate this birthday? Is it a combination of circumstances or a real
sign of recognition and willingness to continue activities? There is no chance
in modern affairs.
Luck belongs to the daring. When Scapa® chose to invest in France, chose to make Barnier® permanent, it is because the Group recognises the values of the men and women who make up this company, the values of its brand, and the dedication of its distributors and end users, the quality of its products, services and innovations.
Thank you again and we wish you good business!
100 years, 100% French!

BIRTH OF 6095, THE ORANGE® THE TRUE!
A revolutionary product is launched!
Initially dedicated to formwork joining, its strengths make it one of the most appreciated products of the construction craftsmen: an easy unwinding and adhesiveness in all weather, on all media, whatever the temperature of application!
Many actors try to copy it without success. To cope with the demand, a second factory is built.
A FRONT-GARDISTE PLANT!
Allies bomb a stocks of enemy munitions
stationed in Valence. The damage to the plant is considerable. We must
rebuild. The new buildings, independent of each other, prevent any risk of
spreading fires, thus preserving the environment: a truly avant-garde construction!
The transformation of plastics is improving and very quickly the company calendered PVC films and adhesive coating. This is how the range of electrical insulation tapes "Chatterton" of a new generation is born!
A fire, probably of criminal origin,
destroys all the installations. Tenacious and inventive, Barnier's research is
oriented towards the transformation of plastics:
○ Extruded in round dies around a coated woven film, the formed cord is the ancestor of our garden hoses!
○ Extruded in flat die and in different colours, these plastic slats grouped in cross-sections gave birth to filtering curtains ... and decorate numbers for doors!
It all starts with the entrepreneurial
spirit of Dauphinois engineers. A family composed of Pierre-Eugène Barnier, his two sons Pierre-Benjamin and André Barnier, and Jean Vallernaud.
They invented the double-sided "Chatterton" fabric whose insulating, sustaining and long-lasting properties quickly made it the favourite of electrical installers. Soon the range for electrical insulation extends with the coating of varnished canvases.
