Brachot-Hermant continues French expansion

August 2020

With the acquisition of the Granit du Sidobre quarry and production site in the Tarn region of France, Brachot-Hermant has consolidated its sustainable growth and increased the commercialisation of French natural stone.

“Brachot recently acquired the ADHL production site in the Tarn region of France.  With the acquisition of Ateliers du Haut Languedoc we had already strengthened our position and commercial operations on the French market.  We also invested in four quarries (LS Granits) in the same region, which are now incorporated in the Granitarn brand.  Today, these quarries already cover the full range of Tarn granite, from Clair and Foncé to Royal and Gros Grain.”

“They are now complemented with an additional quarry and production site: Granit du Sidobre. Like the other four quarries, this site is located in Burlats.  Apart from extracting Tarn granite, it also produces outdoor and paving materials made of granite and other French natural stone.  In addition, Granit de Sidobre specialises in the cutting and finishing of granite slabs, sourced from local and international quarries, in the appropriate thicknesses for the funerary market,” states Laurence Roelens.

“With this acquisition Brachot demonstrates its extensive commitment to the promotion and commercialisation of European natural stone and its high value,” Roelens continues.  “Every day we commit ourselves to searching for new materials and innovative extraction and production techniques that create added value and reinforce our vision and sustainable growth.”
