Social and environmental commitment
The Extha Group has always had a great interest in respecting the environment in all its aspects, both in terms of CO2 emissions, but also on the social side and with regard to its employees.
As soon as the products were designed, all the advantages that would benefit the environment and the comfort of the employees were sought. Therefore, the fact that our fireproof plates are custom-made generates deliveries to the construction sites at the right time, meaning less transport and handling. This also avoids cuts on construction places and the associated inconvenience: dust, noise, debris and problems in handling this debris.
Manufacturing was historically based in Soulgé sur Ouette. Composed mainly of gypsum and requiring complete and rapid drying, many environmental constraints were linked: gypsum supply whose quarries were far away, use of a gas furnace to dry the slabs. All this required a large amount of expensive CO2 resources.
