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.

Le Gal marble, 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?

12 JUNE 2019 Stone in Portugal

Held in Portugal since 2003, STONE - Trade Fair dedicated to the natural stone sector, is currently considered as the best show of the sector in the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal ranks 8th in the world rankings of ornamental stone producers, because of the wide variety of natural stones it contains, including marble, granite and limestone.

 

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. This fact allows visitors, in addition to visiting exhibitions, the opportunity to visit quarries and business premises.
