Concrete fences have become outdoor decoration component increasingly valuable and popular in the field of landscaping realisation. Nowadays smoked and sophisticated, concrete fences benefit from great texture, and keep improving their appearance through regular innovation. This growing market led the manufacturer Rousseau Clôture to replace one of its production lines. Headed by Mr Le Strat, this French company, leading player in the precast industry for more than 20 years, owns 8 production lines. Its whole range of products, recognised as high-end concrete fences on the market, is manufactured in its plant based in Domloup (Bretagne).
To meet the requirements of the market, a key concern for the concrete manufacturer is to succeed in reconciling flexibility, productivity and safety, while offering an ever-larger range of high-quality products. It is known that manufacturing plants produce according to their stock and the specific orders they receive. However, quantities and type of product are increasingly variable. In order to react to their customers’ wishes, concrete manufacturers have to change their production several times during a shift. However, this operation has a big impact on the production. On the one hand, the overall manufacturing process is affected in that the production changeover involves a production shutdown which adversely affects the rate of production. On the other hand, this operation affects the labour force during the handling of moulds, exposing them to hazards and frequent work-related accidents.

To address these concerns, the company has invested in a fully automatic factory from Quadra for the production of wet cast products. Quadra’s challenge was to design a versatile production plant to produce a board range of products with a sensible layout.

This company therefore pays great attention both to the quality and performance of its equipment and installations.
Creative concrete has always been at the heart of the development and diversification strategy of the company Hermet. The company is accentuating further its efforts in this direction by putting up a new Quadra plant. This plant is fully automatic for the production of wet-cast ,products. This is the 10th wet-cast unit installed by the French manufacturer. Quadra is continuing to develop this activity on the basis of these achievements. The construction of these materials from the study to the full manufacturing is made in Quadra’s facilities.

The company Hermet was born in the middle of the vineyards of Gaillac. Its activity is spread over four sites covering the region of Midi Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon in France.
