Marcel, grinding expert

"With 20 years’ experience behind me, Vicat took me on in 1992 to work as new project works manager, then plant performance director in Grenoble from 2000 to 2004. I have now joined the Performance and Investment Department (PID) as grinding expert. My work covers many spheres of action including the start-up of new facilities, developing new techniques, boosting plant performance and troubleshooting for complex processes. I deal with 86 grinders spread over 20 sites. As a result I have traveled all over the world and acquired leading-edge knowledge in many fields. Working on all these sites has given me a very thorough grasp of processes and technologies, which is the best way to learn. My job is really exciting and I love working for a company that’s expanding."
