Ever since the invention of artificial cement by Louis Vicat in 1817 we have been implementing an R&D policy that takes advantage of our community presence and our passion for materials. Our objective is to use our expertise to come up with answers to a broad range of issues and to help build the world of tomorrow.
The end purpose of innovation in construction is to rethink housing and the city, to imagine new, affordable models of co-existence and transport that are responsible with respect to the environment and biodiversity. To meet current and future challenges, the ready mix industry is changing, adapting. The quality of materials alone is no longer paramount: we have to take account of the functionalities that can be associated with our products.
