During the last 10 years, the construction industry has been changing to technical products with high thermal, mechanical, acoustic, seismic and environmental performances. The concrete industry has been recently providing innovative products which combine technical reliability, aesthetic finishing, and easy implementation. These new products are largely approved by the manufacturers that are submitted to the new energetic and environmental regulations buildings. The concrete block is promoted, and regains market shares.
The company Pomel Beton, group Bomeil/Boulard Verdier since 2010, and member of the Groupement Gedimat, manufactures a large range of concrete products intended for industrial, residential, agricultural construction, and also used in the landscaping industry. Pomel Beton’s old production unit did not allow the manufacture of technical blocks or the use of new technologies. Therefore the group took on a strategic position in investing in technical installations provided by Quadra.
As part of this investment, the company Pomel Beton defined several specifications. More than a supplier, Pomel Beton was looking for a partner able to assist them in the manufacture of new value-added products such as a grinded block, and the insulation block “Air’Bloc’.
Following a strong investigation of all aspects of the project such as the existing environment, the current and future production requirements, and a rational implantation, Quadra provided the following equipment: batching and mixing plant, vibrating press, grinding machine, palletising robot, handling equipment, and dosing and filling system feeding the hollow block with a mineral foam for the manufacture of the product Air’Bloc.
