Quality & safety

Safety is one of our priorities, both for our customers and for their working environment

Our patented “Cold Nozzle” technology avoids any risk of burns or material damage for users of our Ripack guns. As for our Securipack regulators, available with all our products, their technology offers double safety for the operator.

Several stringent certifications (UL, ULc, GS, DVGW, CE) guarantee this level of quality and safety. This enables us to maintain the highest standards in the development of our products.

Last but not least, our warranty levels, ranging from 1 to 10 years (depending on the product and brand), are synonymous with durability and reliability.

Our values

innovation Ripack Supplies


Innovation is at the heart of our development and takes shape at many levels.

Naturally, it is present in the creation and continuous improvement of our products and services, but not only. Innovation can also be seen in the development of our communication, training and support tools, and in the way we manage our teams. Our constant quest for improvement is also reflected in our search for new ways of organising and managing our business.

qualité Ripack Supplies


Our standards are as high as your expectations. The quality of the products and service we provide, of course, but that’s not all!

Quality is not just about what we sell, it is also important in the relationships we have with our customers, our partners, our stakeholders and our teams. This is of paramount importance to the SEFMAT Group.


respect chez Ripack Supplies


Respect is crucial at SEFMAT. It includes the quality of human relations. It is a daily task that we carry out with all our external partners, as well as with our own teams.



At SEFMAT, this fundamental value takes several forms

Respect for people

A company’s social role goes far beyond its economic role. We have a daily relationship with our customers, our teams and our suppliers, and we must take care of this relationship. We have to do everything we can to ensure that our exchanges are the best they can be, even if it means finding ways to improve them.

Our vision of the company is based on 3 main principles:

  • Continuous training in relation to changes in the company, new technologies and new working methods means that employees can keep up with these changes more serenely and with all the keys in hand. We try to provide a wide range of training courses, from risk management in the workplace to appropriate management methods and the acquisition of new technical skills.
  • research in close connection with training enables everyone to be a driving force within the company and to propose actions or solutions with the aim of improving life in the company.
  • Team spirit is developed on a daily basis. It is essential if we are to understand each other and work together in the best possible conditions. The aim is to work in a friendly, caring environment.


Respect for the environment

As mentioned above, the meaning we give to our actions is essential if everyone is to identify with our values.

Protecting the environment is one of the major ways in which we can give meaning to what we do. We activate several environmental levers to remain consistent with our values. These include the choice of suppliers (preferably national or European), the choice of materials used, optimisation of our product range and packaging methods.

Our commitment also extends to the information we pass on to our customers. We do our utmost to raise awareness of the use of bio-based gases, reduce film consumption and recycle plastic.

We also take action internally. Our employees are encouraged to sort their waste (both production waste and household waste), use the compost bins provided or tend the company vegetable garden.

Every action we take reinforces our commitment to protecting our environment. There are no small actions.

Commitment to Sustainable Development

An Integrated Vision

Our director, Julien Marigot, explains:

“Can we really envisage the development of our companies without adopting a coherent approach to sustainable development or, more broadly, ecology? Personally, I no longer believe so (and I would like to thank my colleagues at the Centre des Jeunes Dirigeant-e-s d’entreprise for this realisation).

There are many reasons for making this change, but one in particular resonates: the importance of giving meaning to our actions, of aligning them with our personal values. How can we justify our daily efforts at home without integrating them within our company? What impact would this have on our teams, our customers and our suppliers?

Without judgement or lecturing, at SEFMAT we have opted for a progressive and coherent approach, acting through different channels. Each action reinforces the next, starting with internal initiatives, with small steps, without giving in to the temptation of systematic discourse or seductive but empty ‘greenwashing’ practices. Our teams also aspire to realistic actions, in line with their own values.

Secondly, we are rethinking our development model, giving our approach its full meaning. Assuming this responsibility and making the ‘environmental impact’ criterion the starting point for each new product or service is our guiding principle. We have introduced a real ‘green veto’ to guarantee this approach.

In addition, we plan to use today’s profits, aware that some of them sometimes depend on ‘polluting’ solutions, to support responsible projects.

After careful consideration, we have decided to invest in ‘Team for the Planet’*, not to shirk our responsibility, but to remain true to our global commitment.”

This approach, integrated into every Sefmat Group brand, reflects our commitment to a sustainable and responsible future.”

* a not-for-profit company that supports and finances businesses committed to the global fight against climate change.



History A know how forged by experience



Since its creation in 1922, RIPPES production facilities have specialised in designing sealing equipment and have based their success on innovation. A number of patents were filed enabling safer products that use less gas to come onto the market.

Around 1975, RIPPES came up with and developed the idea of covering a palletised load in a cover made from heat shrinkable plastic in order to stabilise the load and protect it from theft and bad weather.

Its mastery of the flame, resulting from this extensive know-how, later led to the creation of the company SEFMAT and its brand, RIPACK.



SEFMAT was one of the first manufacturers to develop a gas-fed “gun” intended for shrinking heat shrink covers thanks to the heat generated by the hot air produced. From the outset, the SEFMAT has concentrated on innovation in the safety of its equipment and its reliability.

The “cold nozzle” patent which removes any risk of contact burns has enabled RIPACK to become the leading brand on the market worldwide.



Very quickly, the SEFMAT found outlets for the RIPACK range all over the world. Now, present in more than 140 countries, the RIPACK network is the most extensive in the market.
The quality of our products is inked to the quality of our service, which is why SEFMAT is committed to its international network providing a local service.

implantation distributeur Ripack Supplies



Ripack is the first brand to develop a “combo” extension system. This system allows 2 extensions to be nested, without tools, to form a longer one. Thanks to this development, our brand has established itself in the world of boat wintering and the protection of industrial goods under shrink wrap.



Ripack Supplies® was launched in 2012 to meet the needs of our distribution network. The brand offers a range of products for protecting large volumes such as boats, industrial goods and building containment.



Over the years, the product range has been extended to make the work of professionals easier. The year 2023 announces the launch of the new 750 trolley, which completes the range.

With its all-terrain wheels and range of functions, the trolley is a real mobile workstation. Extensions and tools are stored in complete safety.

It’s easy to move around, and very comfortable for the operator.
