DKSH France was founded in 1939 in Lyon, under the name of Siber Hegner France, with the purpose of supplying the local industry with raw silk. At that time, Lyon was a very important place for silk manufacturing. In the beginning of the 1950s, an office was created in Paris to benefit of the prestigious image in the world of the Paris city. This entity sold a wide variety of products ranging from consumer goods to large machinery. In 1968, considering the significant growth of the office in Lyon, all the activity was centralized in Lyon focusing heavily on raw silk distribution.

In the 1970s, Siber Hegner France started its first diversification into leather in synergy with the silk and textile activities. Finally the decisive move of the company took place in the 1980s where the company started selling raw materials for the chemical industries. This activity became its main business.

After the merger between the companies Diethelm Keller and SiberHegner in 2002, SiberHegner France changed its name in March 2004 into DKSH France S.A. Today DKSH France S.A. is one of the leading distributors of specialty chemicals and ingredients.
