“PROTAC was founded in 1996 in Lamballe (22) in France and was the result of the diversification of the Rose Group’s historic activity.


The Rose Group was founded in 1949 in St Goueno (22) in France by M. Lucien Rose, the father of the current CEO M. Michel Rose.

PROTAC was created to cater to a permanent will to control the quality of the timber used by the Group.

2007 saw the creation of a timber product paint finish plant and was a turning point in PROTAC’s strategy.

In 2012, to guarantee its continued growth, PROTAC launched a second paint line (one of the most modern in Europe) and a logistics platform.

PROTAC has also gone international and has become closer to its source of raw materials by purchasing a planing mill in Estonia: Puidukoda”
