History[edit]

Sasa Demarle, maker of Silpat products, was founded in 1965 in northern France by M. Guy Demarle, an experienced baker looking for better ways to bake baguettes. He invented the first non-stick baguette baking trays with silicone coating, creating a new type of professional and home bakeware. Then he created the original Silpat non-stick baking mat, which is used in the foodservice industry and by home bakers.

Sasa Demarle is headquartered in Wavrin, France. Sasa Demarle Inc. operates through the Sasa Industrie Group. In 1993, the company opened a U.S. office in Cranbury, New Jersey, to bring Silpat to the North American market. In 2000, Sasa Industrie Group merged with Demarle’s parent company in France to form a new global leader in non-stick baking products.
