Hoffmann says its cements will allow CAPREMIB group to produce acoustic screens with a lower carbon footprint

The CAPREMIB group, which has operated in the construction sector for the last 30 years, supplies an extensive range of products to the construction and civil engineering markets. Quality and innovation are the CAPREMIB group's priorities.

CAPREMIB says it will use the Hoffmann low-carbon-footprint cements to partially or entirely replace its supplies of traditional cement for a portion of the products it markets in France.

The partnership contract, which includes a volume commitment, covers the production of precast acoustic screens combining wood and concrete using Hoffmann cements. 

The CAPREMIB group has more than 1,000 elements of up to 11m in length and 9 tonnes in weight for bleachers in the Roland Garros tennis stadium, as well as the girders for the future 6ha maintenance and sidings site for line 14 of the Paris Metro.

CAPREMIB is a specialist in the designing of precast concrete structures and has also built the concrete structure of the 39-story DUO towers in Paris, which was designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel. 

Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, commented: "We are delighted to have signed this contract with CAPREMIB, a highly-innovative player in the construction sector. This partnership follows months of technical tests and will allow the CAPREMIB group to produce wood/concrete acoustic screens with a lower carbon footprint.

"Combining wood and concrete in the manufacturing of this type of product meets market expectations and illustrates our ability to continually increase the growing number of applications for our technologies."
