LCV Group: A European Leader in Plastic Tooling and Transformation

The LCV Group specializes in the study and production of molds for thermoplastic injection, composite solutions, and plastics transformation.

The group brings together 3 entities:

  1. CMPR, production of new tools
  2. BUMER, development, modification and purchase of tools
  3. MARMILLON, plastics processing

Consolidation of two industrial know-how

The two professions and two skills are interdependent and appear to be an essential industrial logic to meet the demands of current markets.
Integration takes place vertically in the subcontracting chain with the production of tools at CMPR and Bumer, then mass production at Marmillon.
