Facilities of the Vicat Group
Vicat's concrete business is composed of 243 concrete plants that produce 8,3 million cubic meters of concrete in five countries: France, the United States, Turkey, Switzerland and Mauritania.
BPE Central (Rhône-Alpes)
In France, the Vicat Group operates 144 concrete plants. The Group also owns, in SATM, a "mobile concrete" facility, allowing the Group to participate in major construction operations of civil engineering firms.
The Group has a network of well developed plants in the Rhône-Alpes region, giving it the capability to monitor all of its clients' sites and achieving the status of a regional leader. The Group is also present in the following regions: PACA, Midi-Pyrénées, Centre – Auvergne, Nord – Pas-de-Calais, Île-de-France and in the northeast area of France.
The Group operates a fleet of mixer trucks that deliver concrete to the site. The group provides the bulk of the cement and about one third of aggregates used in ready-mix concrete, which reflects the Group's advanced vertical integration of its activities.
Ready-mix concrete unit in California (United-States)
In the United States, the Group operates 45 concrete plants in the two states where it has facilities, California and Alabama.
In May 2008, the Group acquired a major ready-mix concrete facility around Atlanta, further reinforcing its strong vertical integration in the southeastern part of the United States.
The Walker Group facility (14 concrete plants in nine sites) is well-positioned in a major market in the south of Atlanta, enjoying long term growth possibilities, thanks to the city's strong population growth.
Ready-mix concrete unit in Matten (Switzerland)
In Switzerland, the Group, through its subsidiary, Vigier, owns 20 concrete plants spread over half the western area of Switzerland which covers four regions.
Ready-mix concrete unit in Ankara (Turkey)
In Turkey, the Group started operations in 1991 and developed its ready-mix business in the central Anatolie region, around the cities of Ankara and Konya. The Group operates 33 plants. The ready-mix business in Turkey is well-equipped to adapt to the harsh weather conditions in the country's central region, as well as to the constraints relating to its tourism activities. The Group therefore operates its ready-mix business with an alternating schedule: From spring to autumn, it supplies the regions of Ankara and Konya; during the winter and low tourist season, it supplies construction sites situated along the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
In Mauritania, the Group operates one concrete plant.
