Rachat de Diffuver



La famille Riou continue ses achats de miroiteries en France et son maillage du territoire français

Le premier groupe français de façonnage du verre plat RIOU Glass annonce le rachat du transformateur de verre plat Diffuver, domicilié à Marclopt dans le département de la Loire (42).

Après son entrée au capital du miroitier italien Cappelletti & Roleri en mai 2022, et du groupe belge Euroglas fin 2022, RIOU Glass signe une troisième acquisition dans le cadre de sa stratégie de développement RIOU GLASS VERRE 2025. Le premier transformateur indépendant de produits verriers en France vient de réaliser le rachat de la totalité des actions de l’entreprise Diffuver.

L’opération de croissance externe vise à consolider le maillage territorial de l’ETI en France. « Diffuver est un acteur reconnu en Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes avec lequel nous partageons un savoir-faire et les valeurs familiales communes, explique Christine Riou Feron, Présidente de RIOU Glass. Cette acquisition nous permet de parfaire notre maillage territorial déjà composé de 16 sites industriels en France. » Sans compter les sites dans les DOM TOM

Outre l’ancrage géographique, l’acquisition de Diffuver va également permettre de renforcer l’expertise de RIOU Glass dans la réalisation de vitrages de très grandes dimensions pour le marché de la façade, spécialité de Diffuver. Le rachat est enfin un moyen pour le groupe normand de déployer l’ensemble de sa gamme de solutions de vitrage sur le territoire. Une gamme qui s’étend du double au triple-vitrage à très hautes performances à des produits plus techniques et design (vitrages décoratifs pour les portes d’entrée, crédences de cuisine, cloisons…).

Philippe Melon continuera d’accompagner le développement de Diffuver avec à ses côtés Rémi Maximin, directeur du site de Marclopt, et les 40 collaborateurs que compte l’entreprise. « Ambition, passion et esprit de famille sont les valeurs que nous partageons avec le groupe RIOU Glass. Nous mettrons tout en oeuvre pour satisfaire leurs attentes et ainsi à travers eux, continuer cette belle aventure dans le monde du verre » conclut le fondateur de Diffuver.

Diffuver, un savoir-faire de plus de 35 ans dans le verre

Créé en 1986, Diffuver est l’un des acteurs les plus importants de la transformation du verre plat de la région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Présente à Marclopt (42) et à Lyon (69), l’entreprise produit chaque année 100.000 m² de double vitrage. Sur la période 2020-2021, Diffuver a réalisé un investissement de 3 millions d’euros dans son outil de production afin de répondre à la forte demande du marché de la façade pour les verres de grandes dimensions. Un plan d’investissement qui a permis d’agrandir le site industriel de Marclopt et d’installer une table de coupe de verre feuilleté, deux centres d’usinage, ainsi qu’une ligne d’assemblage « Jumbo » de 56 mètres capable de réaliser des verres isolants de 6.000 x 3.210 mm.

Rolltech launches WinUw Calculator: a new app to calculate IG thermal transmittance

Calculating the U value of an IG unit has been made easier and faster. Rolltech makes it easier to design and develop more performing IG for more energy efficient buildings that comply with the strictest international standards. The WinUw calculator is a new app developed by the Glass Alliance company, and is available from App Store for Apple devices and from Google Play Store for Android devices.

This software is very useful in calculating the thermal transmittance of IG starting with the different spacers used. The app can be used with all spacers produced by the Glass Alliance international network ofFenziAlu-Pro and Rolltech, worldwide distributors of materials for very high performance IG units.

The WinUw application is very user-friendly; some parameters are entered to obtain the PSI value of all standard units made with all Glass Alliance spacers. Parameters that can be combined and entered online in the calculator are:
– Four different types of windows based on the material used (PVC, wood, aluminum, aluminum and glass);
– Six types of Glass Alliance Warm Edge spacers from the Multitech, Butylver TPS, CHROMATECH Ultra and CHROMATECH product groups
– Two Standard spacers FERROTECH (galvanized steel spacer) and aluminum spacers are included with calculated values
– Double or triple glazing option in numerous different thicknesses.

For each combination the internal glass edge temperature will also be provided. The WinUw calculator uses EN 10077 standard with equivalent thermal transmittance being determined in accordance with the ift WA-08/3 and WA-17-1 guidelines.

The application is free, available in 6 languages (English, German, French, Russian, Italian and Polish) and in addition to being available for all mobile devices it can also be used directly from a PC at: www.winuw.de/rolltech.

“We have surely developed an innovative app, a useful tool that will definitely be appreciated by our customers – confirmed Johnny Holm, Sales Director at Rolltech – And we are also convinced that this can be another reason to choose Glass Alliance as the main partner for the glass industry”.
