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.

LiSEC Cutting Table used in the Tyrolean Glasfachschule (School of Glassmaking)

Since September 2015, the HTL (Polytechnic Glass) Kramsach in Tirol is using a LiSEC cutting table „base CUT“ for the education of the students.

 

Analogous to industrial enterprises it is also particularly important for schools to get quality by means of modern and state-of-the-art machinery. After more than 20 years of use, the HTL Kramsach replaced the previous manually operated cutting table by a LiSEC „base CUT“. After having compared different manufacturers in the market, the HTL quickly opted for the Austrian machine manufacturer. Originally known as an industrial brand for the high-end sector (regarding quantity, quality and price), LiSEC with its base series now provides relatively affordable machinery for newcomers in the industry, small-scale enterprises or the use in schools. For the headmaster, Dr. Ursula Pittl-Thapa, a former graduate of the polytechnic herself, the LiSEC cutting table was „Love at first sight“.

 

Established in 1948, the educational institution comprises a polytechnic for glass, the faculties glass and technology, glass and design as well as, for three years now, a HTL chemistry. The graduates of the HTL Kramsach, 361 students are educated at present, are very sought after in the glass industry and they cover a comprehensive spectrum of jobs, from the specialist for restoration up to the consultant in statics and façade engineering. „The base beginner’s model is ideal for polytechnics and/or vocational schools in terms of price/performance and it provides “LiSEC quality at an affordable price”, says the native of Innsbruck who herself has processed glass for a while and who has “dragged around quite some glass sheets”. Due to the education purposes and the operation by inexperienced persons, the high degree of service of LiSEC constituted a critical purchase criterion when it came to the decision.

 

Klaus Preyler, LiSEC Sales Director, who handled the sale: „During their education, the students in Kramsach are now learning how to handle the best machines in the market– best in glass processing, from the outset!“

New headquarters for Guardian

The new European headquarters of the company leader in the manufacture of finished products in glass was inaugurated Wednesday.

Last summer, Guardian Industries, the leading company in the manufacture of finished glass products, has established its European headquarters in the industrial zone of Bourmicht in Bertrange. Wednesday, the building of 2100 m² was inaugurated in presence of some officials and the Minister of Economy, Stephen Schneider.

According Guus Boekhoudt, Vice President Europe, 120 people work in the building. It includes, among others, marketing, finance, legal and taxation. In all, the company employs in the Grand Duchy between 700 and 720 people, divided between headquarters and factories and Bascharage Dudelange.

"It is important to separate the seat factories," said Guus Boekhoudt. The finished glass products for the automotive (eg windscreen) represent "less than 10% of our business," said Vice President Europe. "The majority of business relates to the residential and commercial premises," he said.

HELANTEC under new management

The two managers, Jochen Weiß and Gregor Witrofsky, who for more than 10 years have been a fixed component in the company and who have played a key role in the continuous development of the company, have jointly taken over the management of the company. Over the last 10 years new technologies have been introduced, the product spectrum has virtually been doubled and the internal quality assurance has been optimised.

The corporate structure remains intact, product development will be driven forward and direct customer support will be intensified. Initially the focus will be expanding the insulated glass business segment. Systems for monitoring various production processes for the manufacturing of insulated glass are almost ready for market introduction and additional products are in development.

"Manufacturers of insulated glass have a competitive advantage through the use of HELANTEC products; and in everyday operations they more easily meet the constantly increasing market requirements", explains Gregor Witrofsky (36).

"Custom webinars, online presentations and personal customer visits are planned for intensification of customer support. Due to the global export business and to ensure the best possible support, the network of our sales partners will be further expanded", adds Jochen Weiß (38).

The worldwide demand for insulated glass represents significant potential for HELANTEC GmbH. Thanks to experienced developers and a reliable production team the new managing directors look to the future with confidence.

 

New start for AGC Moustier

 

AGC Glass in Moustier is going up a production line, but not a new one. These are the machines Site Athus in southern Luxembourg that is transferred to the Basse-Sambre. It was announced a year ago. On one side we stop production, the other one goes back and construct a new tool. Athus was losing money Moustier away from where the glass he used was produced. Tomorrow everything will be manufactured in the Basse-Sambre.

The aim, improve profitability

There will be transportation to carry the flat glass produced in Moustier to Athus where it was processed into laminated glass for the construction market. Then he returned to Moustier for packaging and shipment to the customer. It is a significant saving. With this concentration of means of production on one site AGC tries to resist the crisis that has hit the flat glass sector since 2008. With the result, excess capacity and the closure of production units across Europe. We remember that in Belgium the neighboring sites of Saint-Gobain Sekurit Glass and put the key under the door there two years ago. We also remember that AGC had arrested a closed oven Moustier no in 2012. AGC Glass Europe has also closed a plant in northern France and another in the Netherlands. Today, the group feels happy to have arrived at a better balance between supply and demand. But he dare not bet on the future.

Fewer job creation at Moustier

With the transfer of south Luxembourg activities to the Lower Sambre, 85 Athus operators will lose their jobs. But Moustier, only a small half, about 40 position will be created. Athus workers are obviously a priority. But they live near the Luxembourg border, at least 160 km. There are therefore three executives who have accepted the proposal. Two former employees of Saint-Gobain Auvelais were also hired.

The new laminated glass line should be ready in late June.
