Pyroverre acquires the Cluzel mirrors in France


Pyroverre is a glass products processor based in Châteauneuf-du-Rhône (Drome), storer and distributor of fire resistance glasses from Pilkington (NSG group) for the southern part of French territory.
The company, created in 2010, is specialized in the transformation of Pilkington Pyrostop and Pilkington Pyrodur glass products. She cuts custom glass for a clientele made up of mirror makers and carpenters. Its design office is dedicated to specific customer requests to ensure compliance with fire regulations.
In 2015, the Côté Verre company, founded by Maryline Pereira, joined the group to offer online sales of all types of cut, shaped and then shipped glazing from the production workshop. The online configuration tool makes it easy for customers to order on the site.


Why the Cluzel mirror?
We asked Mathieu Guenin, manager of the company, to explain the reasons for this takeover. Mathieu Guenin and Maryline Pereira know that the implementation is the continuity of Côté Verre's activity, the demand from local customers being recurring and increasingly important. They then form an installation team. They quickly realized that it would be easier to do an external growth operation. They are interested in a possible acquisition and have found the miroiterie Cluzel in Montélimar, near Châteauneuf-du-Rhône. The manager, Danielle Fargier, wanted to retire. She was assisted by Eric Coin on a technical level with solid know-how.
The company's equipment allows for the cutting, shaping and drilling necessary for simple mirror-making operations. It has a van with a glass-holder gantry. The store has an area of ​​80 m2 and the workshop of 160 m2.
The clientele consists mainly of individuals and professionals as well as local administrations.
Integration and transformations
The takeover took place at the end of January 2021. Mathieu Guenin recruited Paul Fabre as agency manager as well as Dorotea Nacasabog as sales assistant. Dannielle Fargier will accompany them for three months to pass on his knowledge to them, while Eric Coin will continue his consulting, cutting and glass installation activity.
The existing store will host a new showroom in the form of a show apartment to enhance the offer of the mirror by presenting the products in situ. Railings, kitchen splashbacks, a floor slab, a staircase and a dielectric mirror hiding a screen. The turnover of around 300,000 euros is expected to rise to 600,000 euros.
Although the health crisis has slightly impacted Pyroverre's activity due to the shutdown of construction sites during the health crisis, Mathieu Guenin remains optimistic and believes that the French economy will rebound rapidly. At the same time, online sales via the Côté Verre site are experiencing significant growth, explains Maryline Pereira.

 

New float in France

The Glass Trösch group will invest in the construction of a new furnace at its French site in Homboutg to replace the current furnace from 2008 which was reaching the end of its life.
In addition, an extension of the site to 45,000 m² is planned.

Production from another site will also be transferred there during 2023, with the arrival of 80 employees.

Diamond resin wheels improving

 

    The wheel is lighter, resulting in less stress on the spindle

    The slats on the base have been specially designed so that the water is sprayed, and there fore reaches the point of contact between the grinding wheel and the glass uniformly and in the best way possible

    The material ensures greater rigidity and therefore more direct transmission of pressure levels set by operators

    The base guarantees perfect balance of the grinding wheel.

lAl these new features don’t definitely affect wheel quality in terms of bonding, that is still the same, but they simply improve performances from a mechanical point of view

Reopening of the white marble quarry in the Pyrénées-Orientales, France

 

the Council of State agrees with the operator of Vingrau's quarry

The Council of State returned to the cancellation of the prefectural decree authorizing the reopening of the Nau-Bouques marble quarry, where 28 species of protected flora and fauna are listed.

Disappointment on the side of the Federation for natural spaces and the environment of the Pyrenees-Orientales. This Wednesday, June 3, 2020, the Council of State quashed the decree of the Marseille Court of Appeal which gave reason to the association. And for good reason this decision confirmed the cancellation of the prefectural decree authorizing the full reopening of the white marble quarry of Nau-Bouques (about eight hectares straddling Vingrau and Tautavel).

 

Ten years and building materials: what you need to know

 

As you probably know, the decennial ensures the important work of a building site or the inseparable elements of the building for a period of ten years. This protection is generally the business of craftsmen who put their hands to the work and carry out the most important work or likely to have serious consequences on the work in the event of damage. What you may not have known is that material suppliers may also need a decennial. We explain to you.

Building material suppliers: does the ten-year guarantee apply to me?

Whatever type of materials you provide, even more if they are specific, from the moment you have an advisory role in how your materials should be used (techniques, specific instructions, preparation, etc.) by the 'craftsman builder, then your ten-year civil liability may be engaged in the following cases:

• The improper use of your materials has resulted in a disaster impacting the solidity of the structure concerned

• The improper use of your materials has made the object for which the habitat was intended unfit

• The improper use of your materials has damaged an item of equipment inseparable from the frame

As a supplier, you should not take this lightly since the law, within this indicated perimeter, can attribute you the quality of manufacturer, likely to make you responsible.

How long have material suppliers been covered by the 10-year warranty?

Even if the Spinetta law dates from the 1970s and has changed little, in 2018 (February 28 n ° 17-15.962), the Court of Cassation ruled that material suppliers were affected by this obligation in terms of ten-year insurance.

The judgment remains vague after all and depending on the contract with your customers, your responsibility may be waived, however, to avoid any risk which could prejudice you personally (even if you exercise through a legal person), it's best to have up-to-date coverage.

Marbrerie of the East in France. More than 30 years of existence

 

 

For 31 years, the Marbrerie de l'Est has provided tiling, sandstone, granite, etc., individuals and professionals of Moselle-Sud. The company makes the screed, the laying sometimes. Between big and small building sites, and the retail sale, the company knew to pass between the drops of the crises. To become a reference

 

Denis Bents founded the Marbrerie de l'Est in 1988. The former member of the local music group Evasion has earned a reputation for choice in the flooring industry.

In 31 years, how many individuals and businesses have crossed the doors of this large store specializing in flooring, located behind large drying towers in Lorquin? If the number is not listed, the durability of the Marbrerie de l'Est testifies to the quality of its know-how. "We have never really advertised," smiled the manager, Denis Bentz, installed behind his desk of course consisting of a slice of marble.

 

In the walls that house some 4,000 m² of storage and sales space, there are thousands of references, "for all prices," says the boss. "But I only sell tiles with a good rating Upec (wear, punching, water, chemical agents)," he says. With great speeches, he prefers the satisfaction of the customers and a tiling which will pass the pangs of the time. This is his best communication plan.

Founded in 1988, the Marbrerie de l'Est is housed in the former premises of the Weiler kitchens in Lorquin. Originally from Walscheid, Denis Bentz was looking for a large, moderately priced building, so as not to pose financial problems in the accounts of his fledgling business.

 

"I had a partner for the first two years. We created everything from scratch, "says the entrepreneur. Then he continued alone. The adventure was intense and the nights were short. "At the time, between the time we decided to start and the opening of the store, barely three months have passed," he recalls. His years as foreman at the marble mill Niderviller had allowed him to acquire legitimacy in the middle. It remained to create the structure, to find the machines.

"I knew how to surround myself with employees who I could trust, it's really important."

During the short preparation phase, Denis Bentz and his partner left for the Vosges. They had a phenomenal stroke of luck. "We came across a second-hand debtor for 45,000 francs." The machine is still there. "She never broke down," the boss marvels. Others, more recent, have joined since.

Two employees were hired at startup. It was necessary to find the building sites: outside the town hall of Réding, it was them. What to carve a reputation. More recently, they took care of the grounds of the Sarrebourg funeral home, the Walscheid retirement home, and so on. Without rejecting smaller projects or advice and sales to individuals.

 

Today, looking at the years in the mirror of the time, Denis Bentz still wonders how he was able to do all this. The unconsciousness of youth certainly has its share of responsibility. "I do not count the hours either. And he knew how to surround himself with "employees whom I could trust, it's really important".

After 31 years of existence, his company is adapting to the passage of time: customers who are keen on environmental protection will even be able to discover a range of tiles made of recycled metal, solar panels, etc. We are not stopping progress at the Marbrerie de l'Est.

Renewal of operation of a quarry, in France

The renewal of exploitation of the Bois d'Atré quarry has been authorized for a period of 30 years. The prefectural decree is searchable in Saint-James town hall.

 

By an order signed on February 5th, the prefecture of La Manche authorized the Sarl "Granit d'Atré" to "exploit an open pit quarry of granite, ...

 

Breton granite and its IG

Despite its reputation for quality, Breton granite is difficult to market. Foreign competition is raging. Breton granitiers rely on regional certification to return to the front of the stage. A Breton identity card to ensure the future.

In the Dinan basin (22), three yellow granite companies closed in less than a year. The indestructible granite breton is it at this point in decline of speed? "It's not so much the quarries that disappear, explains the president of the Breton granitiers, it is especially the factories of transformation. About fifty in fifteen years have closed one after the other. It's a catastrophe. That's more than 1,500 fewer jobs in SMEs, the largest of which today has about a hundred jobs. " For Jean-Marie Bégoc, the report is bitter: "We lack of building sites, it's like that after each election. But this time it's worse than usual with the decline in state endowments. And foreign competition is tough.

Chinese, Portuguese and Spanish

In France, granite is little used in facade cladding, it is rather confined to roads and funerary monuments. For curbs, pavers and other pavements, Chinese products have managed to prevail for several years, despite protests from users. "In Brest, for the tram, we had to fight to get a third of the yard. The Chinese pavement was until 2013, 30% cheaper, despite the cost of transport. Since then, parity with the dollar has changed the game and Chinese granite has increased. Its rating has also dropped due to poorly delivered orders (bad formats) or disintegration of stone as in this German station that had to partly deconstruct. However, the Bretons are not happy, they must now face European competition: the Portuguese low-paid labor and Spain who has invested European funds in its factories. Not to mention that the Chinese continue to offer unbeatable prices for funerary monuments ready to pose.

 

The "Geographical Indication" file is accepted

 

What future for Breton granitiers? Give up the regional stone in colors blue, white, yellow and pink? Shaping Chinese granite blocks shipped from Xianmen, the "Chinese Rungis" of granite? Granitiers have not said their last word. "The public owners seem attentive to the local preference. We recently obtained a section of the tram in Paris. The elect support us. There is an awareness of jobs and the quality of the material, "remarks Christian Corlay, Secretary General of Unicem Bretagne (the National Union of Quarry Industries and Building Materials). To favor the regional granite, the tenders introduce more and more often environmental criteria (bad for the granite of importation) and quality (good for the Bretons). Still need to identify the Breton granite. Hence the desire of the granitiers to obtain a regional certification with a "geographical indication" as defined in the Hamon law of March 2014 which extended the concept of PGI to non-food products. But we are ready. The association "IG Granit of Brittany", organization of defense and management, was created. At stake, fifty companies and nearly 800 jobs. "And also the notoriety of the Breton heritage. "

Le Gal marbre, France

Le Gal Marbre et Design is one of the five winners of the 2018 Audacity Awards. Its manager was awarded the "Digital Transformation" trophy for launching innovative customer relationship tools.

"The candidacy to the Audacity Awards has allowed me to look at how far we've come since 2012," says Jean-Jacques Vivier. This son of Côtes d'Armor farmers joined forces with Sylvain Le Gal five years ago, at the head of the company Gal Marbre and Design located in Montoir de Bretagne and specialized in decoration marble.

Legal Marbre relies on digital tools

 

The first year of eighteen months had a turnover of 2 million euros, but significant losses. Six years later, the trend reversed: "The turnover reached 2.6 million euros with a positive result," rejoices Jean-Jacques Vivier. A dozen jobs have been created to reach 24 employees. The keys to this success? "The product that is super beautiful," says the entrepreneur, "and men and women".

Seize digital tools

Jean-Jacques Vivier describes himself as "an affective", listening to those around him: "Sylvain Le Gal is my big brother, I do not take a decision without him," he says . "We also listened to our sales people to understand the needs of customers."

The desire to provide more services has resulted in the development of an online quote platform and an application dedicated to receipt reports. Thus, the professionals, 80% of the customers, carry out the steps themselves and modify the data directly if necessary. This standardization of billing saves customers and the company time. The quote conversion rate is no longer important. "The digital and the artificial intelligence are unavoidable and that interests me", underlines Jean-Jacques Vivier.

Shared recognition

 

These innovations earned Le Gal Marbre and Design the Audacity Award for "Digital Transformation", organized by the CARENE Saint-Nazaire Audacity business brand. "I had a lot of fun participating," says the manager. "I was very moved to receive the award, it was a good moment of recognition for the teams and for me." The € 2,000 reward was distributed to employees.

Gal Marbre et Design continues its production of furniture for kitchens and bathrooms by focusing on the improvement of its services. "Between the validation of the plans and the pose, six days pass," says Jean-Jacques Vivier, "a delay on which we worked a lot." For better planning management, one person was employed in November and a work program is shared online with clients. After years at 20% growth, the goal in 2019 is to control this figure around 10% and an organization always more comfortable and serene.

 

 

Company closing, Arteni marble works in France

The company Arteni-Le Gal, specialized in the manufacture of funerary monuments, closed its doors a few weeks ago.

This will not fail to be relieved by the many motorists who use daily the RD 155, between Fougères and the A 84.

 

Located in Saint-Germain-en-Coglès, the site of an area of approximately two hectares, with important buildings of granite work, is indeed on the edge of the departmental.

Arteni (Arts and techniques of granite) and the Marbrerie Le Gal, of Fougères, had merged in 2013, employing about twenty employees.

The two companies themselves had recently been taken over by the Serenium funeral group.

It is now part of the national group OGF, under the sign Dignité funéraire.

 

The provençal marbrerie rewarded

 

The Provençal marble company from France who celebrated his 70th birthday was taken over 30 years ago by Denis Riocreux.

 

Since then, it has grown from one to twelve employees. An exceptional result for this lover of stone who has passed crafts and tradition to the level of requirements and technologies of the twenty-first century. The machine park is fully digitized and self-financed, with an investment of € 150000 per year, the company constantly adapts its response capacity to changing demands. In terms of achievement, the company also uses the contest of designers to be at the forefront of modernity.

But this equipment is not at the expense of tradition since the know-how is patiently cultivated within society. With a very low turnover, employees stay up to 25 years, we can say that the company knows how to retain talent. She has also obtained the prestigious labels of business of living heritage and that of crafts. This innovative company with respect for tradition, whose main objective is quality, is an example that the city wanted to salute.

 

Sale Soliani Marble in France

Michel Dauphin, the last of the family, has just passed his hand. To retire.

For Laurent Heyser, who takes over the oldest family business of Moyeuvre-Grande, the funeral parlor and marbrerie Paquin-Dauphin, it is also a real change of course.

"I was a truck driver. Wanting to change jobs, I took a training course in 2015 at the Robert funeral home in Pont-à-Mousson. For a year, since early 2018, I worked with Michel Dauphin to perfect my experience, "he says.

Since early January 2019, the company belongs to Laurent Heyser.

Family saga

"The company was created in 1923 by Edmond Paquin, who works with his brother Augustin," recalls Michel Dauphin. "At the time, he was responsible only for the transport of coffins to the church and the cemetery ..." In 1935, he bought a business of pearl funeral wreaths and granite crosses of the city. "The carpenter who made the coffins feared for his work and created problems. That's when my grandfather decided to sell coffins. "

The Soliani marble also

The daughter of Edmond, Simone, is offered a shop at No. 35 rue Foch, for the sale of crowns and crosses. In 1953, she married André Dauphin, who began to work in the company. In 1958, Edmond Paquin retired and shared his business. His son Jean prefers to keep the coal trade. The funeral service returns to Simone and takes the name of Paquin-Dauphin funeral parlor. The funeral will become the SARL Paquin-Dauphin in 1980. Around 1995, the couple decides to sell. Michel Dauphin, one of the two sons of André and Simone Dauphin, acquires the business and moves to 33, rue Foch. He will also take over the Soliani marble shop in 1997. It is this set that he has just sold to Laurent Heyser. But the name - the funeral parlor Paquin-Dauphin - remains relevant.

Four employees, eight individual

The Paquin-Dauphin company has four full-time employees, two at the marble and two funeral homes, to which must be added eight vacant, one of which prepares the diploma of master of ceremonies. Laurent Heyser, funeral director and marble worker, is married and has four children. One of the children starts working as a temporary ... A new saga?

"The company was created in 1923 by Edmond Paquin, who works with his brother Augustin," recalls Michel Dauphin. "At the time, he was responsible only for the transport of coffins to the church and the cemetery ..." In 1935, he bought a business of pearl funeral wreaths and granite crosses of the city. "The carpenter who made the coffins feared for his work and created problems. That's when my grandfather decided to sell coffins. "

The Soliani marble also

The daughter of Edmond, Simone, is offered a shop at No. 35 rue Foch, for the sale of crowns and crosses. In 1953, she married André Dauphin, who began to work in the company. In 1958, Edmond Paquin retired and shared his business. His son Jean prefers to keep the coal trade. The funeral service returns to Simone and takes the name of Paquin-Dauphin funeral parlor. The funeral will become the SARL Paquin-Dauphin in 1980. Around 1995, the couple decides to sell. Michel Dauphin, one of the two sons of André and Simone Dauphin, acquires the business and moves to 33, rue Foch. He will also take over the Soliani marble shop in 1997. It is this set that he has just sold to Laurent Heyser. But the name - the funeral parlor Paquin-Dauphin - remains relevant.

STONE was born and raised, in this context, with the aim of promoting and spreading Portuguese ornamental rock in foreign markets and with the greatest ambition to highlight national exports.

 

STONE takes place in the center of the country, in Batalha, near the limestone massif of Extremadura, in a region that has many limestone explorations and a large number of limestone extraction and transformation companies.
