Our Mission

Founded in 1971, Sodel specialises in the formulation, manufacture and marketing of hygiene and disinfection products to prevent nosocomical infections and foodborne illnesses in the healthcare and restaurant/catering sectors.
Sodel began a new chapter with the acquisition of a majority stake by HLD Group in 2021. At its Lisieux-based site, the company develops and manufactures a wide range of products under the exeol brand name, marketed in France and other countries. We are committed to supporting this development project in a fast-changing and increasingly demanding regulatory environment.

Our mission is to provide our customers with long-lasting disinfection and detergency products, whose performance and claims are demonstrated and proven through standardised methods or processes, and that meet high standards in safety for people, animals and the environment.

We have the resources to continue this remarkable journey. Through the energy and drive of our employees, with stronger Research and Development and sales teams, and the support of HLD Group, we believe that Sodel can very quickly become a leading European player in the healthcare hygiene and disinfection sector.

Our Values

An Ambitious Recruitment Policy

Implement a policy of skills internalisation in order to involve all areas of the company in developing our business knowledge and expertise.
Set up an internal multidisciplinary structure capable of planning for and managing regulatory changes, microbiological, toxicological and eco-toxicological issues, etc.

Internal/External continuous and objective training

Just as training our employees is essential, training and informing users is also key to facilitating the correct use of our products and minimising risks during use: a high-performance product that is incorrectly used will give mediocre results.

A Process of Collective Discussion

Corporate projects are cross-cutting in both their design and implementation. Reflecting this, our "Collective Ambition" programme brings together project developers from all departments of the company to form a management committee.
All employees are involved in the company's development through frequent information meetings and discussions around the solutions implemented.

A Virtuous Design Policy

Sodel analyses all the raw materials used to make the products designed manufactured and/or marketed by the company, in order to eliminate any substances posing a proven major risk and provide a more virtuous equivalent.
Whenever possible, Sodel seeks to obtain the European "Ecolabel" label in compliance with Regulation No. 880/92/EC or Ecocert certification.

Manufacturing Compliant with the Highest Quality Standards

A high level of manufacturing quality in compliance with the regulatory and environmental requirements inherent in the constraints of customers working in the healthcare or catering sectors.
Our commitment to Quality is underlined by our Quality Management system certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 standards (MDR regulation).

A Company involved in its Regional Ecosystem

Priority given to local suppliers.
Cooperation agreement implemented with local partners.
