Hoffmann Green Cement have announced the signing of a contract for the supply of its decarbonated cements, including a volume commitment of 14 000 t until the end of 2027, with the Alkern Group, the French leader in the prefabrication of concrete elements for low-carbon construction methods.
With more than 250 million in sales by 2022 and over 1000 employees, the Alkern Group offers a wide range of products for the construction, landscaping and public works markets in France and Belgium. Innovation, responsibility and proximity shape the Group’s purpose. In order to go even further in its eco-responsible approach, the Group has chosen Hoffmann Green Cement to supply it with 0% clinker cement to replace its traditional cement supply for a part of its products marketed in France. Hoffmann’s cement will help meet Alkern’s goal of reducing carbon emissions from its product offering and developing very low carbon product ranges in the market, which are essential to achieving our collective goals of zero net carbon emissions by 2050.
In particular, the Alkern Group will produce pavers, curbs and street furniture with Hoffmann cements.
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, said, “This contract with a significant volume commitment allows us to strengthen our strong order book and take advantage of the Alkern Group’s powerful network of construction customers. We look forward to partnering with this Group with whom we share a commitment to minimising the environmental impact of the construction sector.”
Xavier Janin, President of the Alkern Group, specifies: “As a market leader, Alkern is committed to continuous innovation and progress. We are fully aware of the urgent need to bring to market products that help fight or adapt to climate change in order to achieve the objectives of reducing global warming. Through this partnership with Hoffmann Green Cement and the use of its clinker-free cement, we will be able to offer the best in low-carbon solutions to our customers. This partnership is totally in line with our purpose: to offer sustainable solutions to the development of territories, to the needs of a healthy, comfortable, aesthetic, environmentally friendly and patrimonial habitat.”
