PENTA is the SAFETY division of the NOVARC group. We share the same essential values, and the ambition to constantly innovate in order to offer original, high-performance solutions.


A family story

Novarc is first and foremost a family story. It began in 1993, in Malataverne in the Drôme, when Frédéric Croullet bought a company specialising in tools for live and low-voltage work. A visionary, the founder worked closely with his suppliers to create a comprehensive range that could meet all the needs of network electricians.

A decade later, the company diversified into automotive and industrial chemicals. A step aside? Not really! Cars have been a passion in the family for generations! Today, electric mobility brings together two of the group's divisions: Safety and Motion & Industry. In 2021, Novarc will create the Networks division, dedicated to the construction, protection and maintenance of electricity grids.
