Rectavit was founded in 1968 and was focused on the shoe industry in the initial phase. The company found new possibilities in the construction industry at the end of the sixties and later expanded the range with specific solutions for the do-it-yourself sector, because the DIY workers increasingly found their way to the building supermarkets. Rectavit signed cooperation agreements with leading, strong brands and distributed the brands of these partners exclusively on the Belgian market: Loctite (second glue), Promat (fire resistant polyurethane foam) and Shell (bituminous damping kits). Since 2004, Rectavit has been part of sector-based and multinational Soudal from Turnhout.
