2016: a record and structuring year

2016 was an exceptional year.
Firstly from a financial perspective, Plastic Omnium has set new records with double-digit growth seen repeatedly in all the group's financial aggregates.
From a strategic perspective, Plastic Omnium closed the most important acquisition in its history by integrating the Faurecia Exterior Systems business. This large-scale operation has given the Group a new dimension - 2016 pro forma revenue of €7.5 billion - and provided leverage to grow both its customer portfolio and technological potential. Furthermore, Plastic Omnium has sold off a number of non-strategic activities in order to focus on its core businesses, namely the automotive industry and the environment.
