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.

Recovery of chimneys Brisach

The chimney manufacturer, with a production site in the Var, France, that had been placed in receivership in May 2016 will lose the majority of its employees.

The two offers of takeovers take only a small part of the employees (24 out of 87 in the best case). One was made by the Italian MCZ who does not propose to take back either the buildings or the industrial activity. The other one by the Norwegian Jotul.

Breton granite has its GI

Breton granite, which has to fight against aggressive foreign competition, has just been awarded the "geographical indication" (GI) label following a new system that entered into force in 2015.

After the "Siege of Liffol", (a type of seats manufactured in the Vosges and labeled in December), it is the turn of the granite of Brittany to see itself homologated geographical indication from 20 January 2017, the date of publication of the Decision in the Official Bulletin of Industrial Property, "says the Inpi.

The Inpi (National Institute of Industrial Property) recalls that the "Consumer" Act of March 2014 extended geographical indications to manufactured products, whereas previously they concerned only agricultural and viticultural products.

The geographical indication "Granit de Bretagne" covers granite extracted from quarries, riprap, semi-finished products (slices, products being finished) and finished products (funerary, roads, urban development, building, decorative products) .

Five departments are involved

The extraction and manufacturing operations must be carried out in a geographical area comprising the 4 departments of Côtes-d'Armor, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine, Morbihan and the commune of Saint-James in the English Channel . "Official sign of quality and origin, geographical indication ensures consumers the authenticity of the products they buy," says Inpi.

"It is the consecration of the reputation of the granite of Brittany, the quality of our work (...) our profession has too often suffered deceit on the origin, economically disastrous, at the heart of a globalized offer, "Said Christian Corlay, General Secretary of the Geographical Indication Association Granit de Bretagne.

The association, which currently gathers 22 companies, is delegated the defense and management of the geographical indication. "This label will make it possible to differentiate the Breton granite in the face of an international competition, particularly Chinese, often exacerbated.

Accompany an up-market product

The challenge for our industry, for our companies, is to accompany a rise in the range of our products thanks to clearly identifiable distinctive signs ", reacted in a statement the deputy of Ille-et-Vilaine Thierry Benoît.

A geographical indication consists of a product name, associated with that of a geographical area. Its characteristics are specified in a specification examined by the Inpi.

Only a group of craftsmen and companies has the possibility of submitting an application for homologation for a geographical indication.

Two other requests for geographical indications are being studied: "Savon de Marseille" and "Espadrilles de Mauléon".

The Stone and its decor. Vial Edition

Editions Vial publishes 4 interesting works on the work of stone.

Volume 1: decoration books

Public: Anyone interested in the size of the stone and ornamental sculpture: future artisans, young professionals as well as those who are more confirmed, specialist antique dealers, architects, lovers of old stones.

The stone and its decor. Tome 1. Book of Marc Chevalier-Lacombe. Decorative works: moldings, benches and seats, engraving, sundials and fireplaces.

More than a strictly technical manual, this book describes the works that a stonecutter or an ornamental sculptor can ambition to achieve. It provides a documentary basis and methods specific to the size of the stone which, often at eye level, approaches ornamentation. The author is convinced that the manual aspect of the trade remains the basis of the training and hopes to prove by this book that it is possible to evolve in the trade while keeping the traditional values ​​of the beautiful work. At a time when modernity is everywhere, it is important to be able to refer to our roots and ancestral know-how: classic projects are numerous, merchants constantly ask for reissues of old works, restorations of old mansions Are still relevant. Contemporary creation itself demands knowledge of the rules of classical work to know how to circumvent them.

The author starts with a description of the extraction, the machines, the techniques of the craft such as cladding and sawing. The tooling and its use are described in detail.

He then tackles the first elements of the stone decoration, the central theme of this work, describing in succession the size of the facings and the bosses, the moldings and their evolution, the benches and the stone seats, emphasizing their historical and stylistic evolution. He speaks in particular of the exedra, the cushions and even the latrine seats. The engraving of letters is dealt with in detail (origin, vocabulary, examples of alphabets, tools and specific techniques), many examples ancient and contemporary illustrate the purpose. An important chapter devoted to sundials will smooth out the difficulties related to the drawing, orientation and realization of equatorial, horizontal, vertical, declining, polar or spherical dials which will no longer have secrecy for the reader.

Finally, a long chapter is devoted to the chimneys, to the evolution of their style from the Roman era until today, and to the techniques of pose. Numerous illustrations (old engravings, historical chimneys, modern achievements, plans and elevations) enrich the statement.

Glossary and bibliography

 

The Morocco. Marble an untapped raw material.

With only 10% of Moroccan reserves of marble exploited, the economy of the kingdom passes by a very promising sector. The professionals of the sector therefore seek to revitalize this activity.

While its reserves are estimated at hundreds of millions of tons, Morocco currently produces only 298,000 tons of crude blocks, or 0.37% of world production, L'Economiste announced in its 29 December edition. Professionals in the sector believe that the dimensional stone is under-exploited and very little transformed locally. Only 20% of marble workers operate in the transformation of blocks into slabs and tiles. The vast majority export raw marble, as a whole, from quarries to Italy, Turkey, Spain ... Once transformed, marble from Moroccan stones is often sold with the words "made in Spain ".

 

Among the obstacles to competitiveness, the absence of a legislative framework. According to the professionals, this situation is due to the archaism of the texts governing the exploitation of the quarries and to the administrative burdens underlying them. The Act provides for the establishment of a prefectural or provincial career committee chaired by the governor, in the presence of the representatives of the organizations concerned and the provincial delegates of the ministries responsible for Health, Trade and Industry, and Regional Planning. To this is added the problem of land tenure. Careers are governed by several schemes depending on the nature of the land they occupy.

 

It is also difficult to pinpoint the supply of the dimensional stone sector. Apart from certain companies whose vocation is exclusively oriented towards quarrying, the sale of blocks of marble in the state and export, all the others are often positioned on extraction, processing, installation Or marketing.
