Compagnie du Midi


CHIMITEX, the specialist in cleaning products and Marseille soap, changed name on January 1, 2015 to become the Compagnie du Midi.

The Compagnie du Midi’s head office is in Saint Laurent du Var in the Alpes Maritimes region of France. It is here that the company’s wiping products, scouring agents and cleaning cloths are manufactured.

The Compagnie du Midi’s second site is the Savonnerie du Midi in Marseille, which has been producing genuine Marseille soap since it was founded in 1894. The factory also makes several other ranges of soap using vegetable oils as well as ecological and traditional cleaning products.

The Compagnie du Midi manufactures and sells its products under various historic brand names:

  • Soaps and household products: Maître Savon, La Corvette, Savonnerie du Midi and Soins d’Orient;
  • Cleaning cloths: Azurex, Azurex Expert, AQUA-D and Nénette.

Since 2013 the Compagnie du Midi has been part of the PRODEF group, a family-owned French SME that has been a major player in the cleaning sector since 1924.

The values of the PRODEF group also apply to the Compagnie du Midi: active participation in improving quality of life through respecting the environment by (i) involving customers, suppliers and employees in the process of sound economic management; and (ii) adapting to change via continuous innovation as part of a medium and long-term vision.
