Interview of Frederic Jacquin, CEO Elkem Silicones

Because we are an innovative company.

Because we are young thanks to our history.

Because we are professionals thanks to our expertise.

Because Silicones combine two great chemistries, that of solidity and that of organic.

Because we are a topical company, Elkem Silicones, through our president, was invited to talk about it.

On February 10th, Frédéric Jacquin was on the set of Nicolas Doze, presenter of " #JM LECO " (I love Economy).   

" JM LECO " is a programme of the French news channel BFM TV specializing in the broadcasting of continuous information on political and economic news. The mission of this programme is to give the voice to company leaders who make the news. As we have all seen in recent months, silicones have never been as important as they are today in many markets. 

During this interview, Frédéric Jacquin recalls the history (described as fascinating by the presenter) of silicone and our company. As he likes to say it is a virtuous circle that was born in the United States and was developed in France and then in China. He also broaches other topics related to our growing strategy, our profitable future, our core business and our activities that we let you discover with this video.
