Values that are shared by all
150 years of company history have solidly forged Vicat's identity, and that identity is honored by everyone on our team. The men and women who comprise Vicat's professional family are united by a sense of pride in being part of a rich history and a company that is forward-thinking and nimble in its attitudes toward people and business processes.
R&D, engine of future
Beginning with our founder's invention of artificial cement, Vicat has always been an innovative company. Using modern methods of analysis, Vicat's R&D team influences the company's product development based on three principles: products that consistently perform, products that are easy to work with, and products that are environmentally friendly.

The Vicat Group has established five priorities to ensure respect for the environment:
- Integration of environmentally-focused professional positions within the company;
- Green choices for energy sources;
- Environmentally-aware water management;
- Noise reduction;
- Climate protection through the careful management of CO2 emissions.
Security, safety and health
Intervention of security-trained staff members
Security and health in the workplace are key priorities for Vicat. We hold regular meetings for all Vicat staff members to discuss security and health issues, continually research (and implement as appropriate) ways to prevent and manage hazardous situations more effectively, and carefully monitor prevention and security processes within all Vicat business locations.
Training and professional education

Technical innovation brings new complexity to business processes. To ensure the Vicat team can work effectively with new technology, we provide frequent training to update their knowledge on a regular basis and to ensure they are comfortable and familiar with new tools and processes before we implement their use. Vicat's "cement school" is staffed by leading specialists in all of the industry's critical disciplines, and welcomes new members.
