Our history


The SERAP Group has acquired Robert BAS, based in Ain, eastern France. Since 1991, Robert BAS has been producing process, boilermaking and mechanisation equipment for the food processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and biotechnologies industries.

A new plant is built on a 36,000sqm ground in Halol close to Savli in the Gujarat state. This plant is composed of 5,000sqm workshops and 800sqm offices and will allow SERAP India to double its production capacity  and set up a manufacturing line of industrial process equipment.


At Replonges in Ain (France), this new one is specialized in the design, manufacturing and sale of Industrial process equipment for dairy, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetics industries.

Eric BOITTIN, hired in 1994 to manage the development and the engineering and design department, succeeded his father Michel BOITTIN and took the helm at SERAP.

1989: Employee involvement

The company's capital was opened up to its employees via an MBO (company buyout) enabling them to become more actively involved in SERAP's business development.


SERAP has gone into cryogenic freezing tunnels, food-processing and wine-making process.

1981: Development of exports

SERAP started exporting to Germany, Belgium and Morocco. Export sales subsequently boomed after the introduction of milk quotas in 1984, especially in Japan.

1980: Ranked No. 3 for milk coolers in France

SERAP abandoned the Frailait brand and chose the company name for its range of polyester open milk cooling tanks (200 to 2,000 litre capacity) and elliptical closed milk cooling tanks (1,280 to 10,150 litre capacity), which were buying in the Netherlands, are now manufactured in Gorron site. 


SERAP built 2 buildings of 3.000 square meters in Gorron one for composite activities and the other one for boiler-making activities from Pontmain.

1968: Michel Boittin appointed to lead the company

Michel Boittin, a refrigeration engineer from Mayenne, took over the reins of SERAP.

A 1 600m² workshop was built in Gorron (53) for composite tank manufacture and refrigeration system assembly. Gorron became the company headquarters in 1969.

1965: Seeking approval

SERAP won its first approval for the Frailait device from the French Ministry of Agriculture. This was first ever cooler to secure approval in France, with 220 liters as a capacity and runs on iced water that enabled dairies to get subsidies in order to buy milk tanks.

1963: SERA was founded

SERA (Société d'études et de Recherche pour l'Agriculture) was founded in June 1963 for the production and sale of Frailait branded milk coolers. In 1964 the company became SERAP (Société d'études et de Réalisations Agricoles de Pontmain).
