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.

Chemical tempering 2

 

WHAT IS CHEMICAL TEMPERING?

Chemical tempering is a surface treatment made at a temperature under vitreous transition.

Glasses are dipped into a bath with melted potassium salt at a temperature superior to 380°C for a period of

16 hours. Under these conditions, an exchange takes place between the potassium ions in the salt and the sodium ions at the surface of the glass.

Chemical tempering

The introduction of potassium ions larger than the sodium ones, involves as a consequence, the establishment of residual stress characterized by a compressed tension on the surface compensated by stress tension inside the glass.

New laminated safety glass from AGC

Stratobel Strong is AGC’s new laminated safety glass offering unique strength and an exclusive look.
More rigid, more resistant
The PVB film used in Stratobel Strong is 100 times more rigid than the standard plastic films used, which gives it a higher load capacity; as such, under certain conditions, the toughening process may no longer be necessary. The thickness of the glass can also be reduced, resulting in a thinner, lighter assembly. Stratobel Strong also offers lower glass deflection under load: the laminated glass remains in place even when broken, ensuring safety and security for people and property. The PVB film’s strong adhesion to the glass significantly reduces its sensitivity to moisture and limits the risk of delamination, and its composition is also compatible with a wide range of sealants and adhesive.
Perfectly neutral appearance
Developed exclusively for AGC, this special PVB film also features a unique, perfectly neutral appearance which does not alter the colour of the glass in any way. This is especially noticeable when AGC’s highly transparent Planibel Clearvision is used in the Stratobel Strong assembly. A perfectly neutral appearance is guaranteed, even in very thick versions.
Processing and availability
Stratobel Strong is available in a wide range of thicknesses and in large dimensions up to 321 cm x 600 cm. It can be combined with clear, coloured or coated glass, or highly transparent glass (low-iron content), and can be processed in all the same ways as other laminated glass products.
AGC service
The technical support and expertise provided by AGC’s Technical Advisory Service, together with the numerous tests and certifications available, are on hand to guide you through the design and calculation phases of your project, ensuring compliance with the latest applicable standards and certifications.

Stratobel Strong is Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Silver.  This new product will be unveiled at the Architect @ Work exhibition in Paris (stand 57), to be held on 19-20 November, 2015.

 

The meteoric rise of the Basque Glass Partners in the distribution of glass

Founded in 2003, the SME already generates 43 million euros of turnover and is about to take a new course in international

In recent years, Glass Solutions Partners has established itself as one of the key links in the glass sector. But although installed in Anglet, this company is hardly known in the Basque Country. A choice of its founder, Elie Benmergui, who prefers to remain discreet.

A winning strategy

Yet this SME, founded in 2003, produces 43 million in revenue. It must be said that the activity of this company, specialized in the distribution of glass products, is strongly internationally oriented. At Anglet, at the registered office, 18 employees speak English and Spanish fluently. The group has also, since 2004, a structure in Spain, Glass Solutions Partners Iberica, Alicante.

To stand out from the competition, Elie Benmergui, the company's boss, offers an unrivaled range of 2500 deliverables flat glass references in twenty-four hours. To this end, it has 86 storage points in Europe. Its customers are market shaper and mirror dealers often lack space to store their goods. To attract and retain, it offers value added services such as financing their stock of different reference flat glass.

New ambitions

Today, his company and its 53 employees are firmly established in the market for the distribution of glass. Meanwhile, Elias Benmergui has also specialized in complex architectural projects, like the wave-shaped canopy that covers the extension of BAB2 shopping center in Biarritz. An activity, which now represents 30% of its turnover. And two years ago, he also invested in a laminated glass production plant near Madrid.

Today, Glass Solutions Partners continues to weave its web abroad in Asia, Australia, USA, North Africa ... "The goal is to reach 60 million euros turnover in next five years, "says Elie Benmergui. And to achieve this, a new and important financial partner - whose name is still a secret - just go up to the company's capital. With key, at least ten jobs created by 2020.

 

Chemical tempering 1

Because thermal tempering limits indictable in the minimum thickness of 3mm, difficulty in

bending glass articles, poor optical quality, considerable distortion etc., more users in different areas (Aeronautics, aerospace, naval, military, motor, electronic and architectonic), sectors asking for glasses with particularly shapes and small thickness) require chemical tempered glass.

Given the evolving phase of these sectors, the chemical tempering is suitable to find optimal arrangement between thickness and shape.

Today with the development of new glass working systems, chemical tempering allows to obtain glasses previously curved and then chemically tempered also starting from thickness inferior to 2mm.

The shape of the glass sheet will not be modified during tempering, obtaining perfectly coupled sheets successively during PVB lamination.

 

Visit Vitrum

The first (bad) surprise on arriving at Vitrum is that the lounge is increased from 4 to 2 halls since 20133. Being a surface of 50% decrease. Despite the increase in the presence of Chinese exhibitors.

Inside, only Intermac has retained all of its usual surface. Lisec who has accustomed us to not impressive stands exposed. Bottero has significantly reduced the size of its stand. Several exhibitors are far from certain to expose in 2017.

On the more positive news we see the return of Bavelloni and with machines on the stand (straight, bevelling, bilateral) demonstration. Bavelloni was recently acquired from Glaston by 5 Italians of its executives exepted the tools and wheels manufacture for flat glass processing.

 

More transparent glasses

How ? These glasses, called "chalcogenides" do not contain oxygen. Team Specialty Glass and ceramics Institute of Chemical Sciences of Rennes, the technique is not new, but until now was based on a complex manufacturing process, "it comes from melting, vacuum and to 900 ° C, a silica ampule containing the raw material of which the chalcogens. Controls are many to avoid contamination with oxygen, "explains the researcher, who worked for his thesis on a different process

The method is to obtain a powder by mechanical pulse shaping by "sintering" - heated to 400 ° C for several minutes. While the chalcogenide glass required several days of preparation, this technique allows to develop in a few hours

 

Super Spacer® used in innovative glazing Alfa Clean Skaal

 

Edgetech Europe GmbH, a Quanex Building Products Company, is pleased to announce that its technology Warm Edge Super Spacer® is integrated in windows really Innovative known manufacturer of window, doors and insulating glass, Skaala Oy, whose headquartered in Finland.

Christina Bång of SinChriJo Agenturer AB, the Edgetech distributor in the Baltics and Nordic, said: "Skaala recently launched this innovative window Integrated heat exchanger that can cover a 25m² surface. It is the only company in the world offering this technology, it took 3 years to develop with some strategic partners.

The glass as hard as steel

The research results were published in Nature magazine.

Japanese scientists say they have created the glass as hard as steel. The secret ingredient in its composition is aluminum oxide. This is its combination with silicon dioxide which makes it much stronger.

Previously, when scientists used a large amount of aluminum oxide, the mixture is crystallized from it returning into contact with any container. Therefore, a glass sheet could not be formed.

That is why Tokyo researchers developed a method that allows not to need container. They used gas, which raises the chemical components in air, where they are synthesized. Result? The highly transparent ice that is made with 50% aluminum oxide, at its resistance, could be compared to steel or iron.

Practical use possibilities of such a material are incredibly broad.
