Message from Julien Blanchard
Chairman of the Management Board Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies

Julien Blanchard« There are crises, and this is THE crisis we’re going through today. An exceptional crisis that forces us to face many uncertainties… 

Our priority today is the safety and health of our employees and partners.

Since the beginning of the health crisis, we have taken the necessary measures to protect our employees by applying the recommendations of the public authorities.

We have implemented remote working, where possible, and adapted schedules to limit the number of people on site at the same time. In this way, our teams take turns at the site and continue the remote exchanges.

As a local company, we are in constant contact with our local ecosystem to adapt together to this exceptional situation.

Our teams remain fully mobilized and are in continuous contact with our business partners to pursue tests, certifications and worksites whenever possible.

Our recent fund raising has given us the means to continue our industrial development. We are therefore working daily on the construction of our next two plants, scheduled to be built by 2024. Our R&D department is continuing its work to continue inventing new decarbonated solutions from co-products. 

The current period is certainly full of uncertainties, but it also adds to our certainties: tomorrow’s world is already here. Industrial innovation to meet environmental challenges is more necessary than ever.

Working as closely as possible with our partners, our employees and the regions, we are pursuing our development and further strengthening our commitment to imagine today’s carbon-free solutions to preserve tomorrow’s world. »
