DRT Today

As an independent family-owned business, DRT has experienced exponential growth thanks to its diversification, its international development and its commitment to innovation.   

DRT (Dérivés Résiniques et Terpéniques) is headquartered in Southwestern France, at the heart of the “Landes” region. Created in 1932, DRT has since grown to extend beyond French borders; today, more than 80% of the company’s turnover is generated in foreign markets. DRT’s strategy for growth in all of its businesses is driven by ongoing investments in its three French production sites as well as in its different sites across the globe.

DRT purchases its supplies from around the world, from Scandinavia to South Africa, to Asia and the Americas. In an effort to secure a continuous supply, the company also operates a concession of several thousands of hectares of pine trees in Madagascar.
