RESPONSIBLE

We select materials that meet our technical requirements and work primarily with suppliers that are committed to processes aimed at reducing their environmental impact.

SUSTAINABLE

We believe in the longevity and quality of our products such that they stand the test of time.

Our company fully embraces a vision
focused on sustainability
and environmental stewardship. We also attach
a lot of importance
to developing
and perfecting our system, by following
regulatory standards
to the letter.

Conscious that the future of our planet is at stake
and being played out right now,
our initiatives and developments
are put together with this in mind.
This is why our processes
and environmental impact
are under
constant evaluation so that we can continue
to improve our
practices and products at all times.

In particular, we have undertaken a series of measures
aimed at taking on
the environmental challenges of the moment,
including adopting sustainable
and eco-responsible
production methods at every stage
of the process,
from the selection of the materials
and suppliers onwards.

We make smart investments in innovative
solutions so that we can
provide a cutting-edge
system that will stay looking great for a long time
to come while
optimising the use of resources, minimising waste
and promoting circularity.

Our mission

Grad® arose from the following mission: Develop innovative, uncomplicated
and sustainable high-quality technical fixing
solutions for private, public
and architectural applications with the goal of becoming
the leader on the market in France and abroad.
Grad® arose from the following mission:
Develop innovative, uncomplicated and sustainable
high-quality technical fixing solutions for
private, public and architectural
applications with the goal of becoming
the leader on the market in France and
abroad.

We prioritise the quality of the products and services from studying the need
to providing support in the field (specialised drawing tool and design office
for bespoke solutions, responsiveness, dedicated customer service, assistance
with communication and sales, technical training and product
presentation, etc.). Our main goal is to establish lasting partnerships
by placing our customers at the centre of our concerns.

At Grad®, we think about the future. Sustainable decisions and strong partnerships
with our suppliers are essential in being able to surpass ourselves and offer our customers a high-end
experience over the long term.

As an industrial company, we face major challenges in our
approach to the design, procurement and production of our solutions.
We are constantly alert to the repercussions of our decisions and actions. This is why we have initiated a study of our carbon footprint to better
understand our current impact, with the aim of continually reducing it.

Consequently, we are more likely to select local partners
from France and Europe that are committed to an environmental approach, and materials
with a reduced impact on the environment, as well as eco-responsible and sustainable production
processes, wherever possible.
For example, the aluminium we use to manufacture our rails
is composed, on average, of 80% recycled material and is infinitely recyclable.
As for the polypropylene (PP) used to manufacture some of our accessories,
it contains 70% recycled materials.
We also decided to stop
using exotic wood types deemed too controversial from
an environmental and ethical standpoint.

In order to ensure the compliance of our system in France as well as internationally,
we strive to meet the applicable standards and regulations.
This is why the Grad® system is verified, tested and validated internally, in accordance with
an inspection plan, and externally with testing organisations and laboratories (e.g. FCBA)
to verify compliance with the standards applicable in France and internationally
(DTU 51.4 (decking), DTU 41.2 (cladding), Eurocodes, etc.).

Our company places human value at the heart of its mission. We are
deeply committed to the well-being of our employees, based on the premise that
every individual is a key contributor to our shared success.

We believe in the power of diversity of ideas and viewpoints. At Grad®,
every team member is important. We think, build and work together.
We make a point of ensuring the health and safety of all employees (specially designed and optimised workstations and equipment, safety-related training
courses, etc.).

We believe that a happy employee is a committed employee,
who will contribute to the growth and collective prosperity of our company.

A new building of interest

A new
building of interest

A new building under construction will be ready to house the Grad® business in 2024. It has been the subject of a very in-depth reflection in terms of energy economics and environmental impact. For its construction, we work with local partners
and craftsmen whenever possible.

As part of a group, whose core business is wood, Grad® has opted for interior partitions using wooden frames made by another brand of the Burger & Cie group, namely BOOA. As always, the reason for this is to keep our supply chains short and reduce our environmental impact.

At the same time, our business generates wood waste, which is reused for heating
our current premises. This heating method will be retained in our new unit.

2200m2 of solar panels will allow us to produce
about 561 MWh per year, which covers almost half of our
annual consumption in production.

What’s more, to minimise the use of artificial lighting,
natural light will be allowed in as much as possible by integrating glass walls
along the entire length of the building along with saw tooth rooflights.
In order to minimise energy losses, we are looking
to recover the heat coming from the cooling circuits.

With our future production flows and organisation,
we will be able to reduce the use of loading equipment
and temporary packaging.

By delivering our polymers in tankers and storing them
in silos, we will eliminate transport packaging.

In addition to the investments related to the building itself,
Grad® will be equipped with high-tech production tools
that can be used to reduce manufacturing times, and
the energy consumption times as a result. With our production flows and organisation, we will be able to reduce the use of loading equipment and temporary packaging.
