In February 2015 Dunkelman & Son Limited became part of Alma FRC, a family-owned French business with a similarly long history in shoe care. The AVEL company belongs to the family group ALMA FRC which was founded by Alexandre Moura.

Avel was founded in 1977 by Mr Moura. His son Marc Moura became the President in 2004 and is also the current President of ALMA F.R.C.
