Manoir Pîtres, Manoir Industries’ subsidiary, celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Created in 1917, it has constantly invested and innovated to remain at the forefront of the metallurgical industry in terms of manufacturing processes, controls and new material development.
Manoir Pîtres is a foundry that is mainly aimed at the petrochemical, nuclear, hydraulic, defence, steel and railway markets. More than 80% of its products are exported. All over the world, moulded and machined components, ready to be assembled, along with even more services are delivered.
Its international dimension and its capacity to innovate maintain its position in 2017, notably through the following achievements:
• the signing of a joint venture in Iran with Akhgar Steel to locally supply tubes for the petrochemical market;
• the formation of another joint venture with English company TubeTech, which has developed an innovative technology to clean petrochemical furnaces;
• the development of new steel grades focused on furnace performance improvement; and
• the partnership with the French company Metalvalue, which supports a metallic-powder manufacturing project and has chosen the Manoir Pîtres’ site to build its future plant. This partnership positions the entire Manoir Group on metallurgy’s future path.
It is a centenary built with a creativity of spirit to always innovate. For Fernand Pons, Manoir Pîtres’ Plant Manager from 1983 to 1994 and Manoir Industries’ President since 2015, innovation has always been at the heart of the Group’s strategy. Manoir Pîtres, the cornerstone of the group, has developed and diversified itself ready for the future thanks to its passionate, committed and creative team.
