Holcim announces the acquisition of Chrono Chape, one of France’s leading independent providers of on-site self-leveling screeds. These fluid applications are used to create a smooth, even foundation upon which builders can lay the floor’s finish, such as carpet or tile. Operating an innovative fleet of batching trucks that mix and apply screeds directly at the customer’s job site, Chrono Chape controls the quantities of materials required for each operation with meticulous precision, delivering “zero-waste” service. The combination of innovation and efficiency has driven Chrono Chape’s reputation in the market to generate double-digit growth in recent years.
Miljan Gutovic, Region Head Europe: “I am excited to acquire Chrono Chape as another step in advancing our ‘Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth’. With this operation, we will expand our range of services and geographic footprint in France. Building on the entrepreneurial vision and legacy of the Dupuy family, I look forward to investing in this business’ next era of growth and warmly welcoming their employees into the Holcim family.”
Chrono Chape was founded in 2005 in Longeault-Pluvault, near Dijon/France. As part of the Holcim network, Chrono Chape is expected to deliver strong synergies with the company’s extensive ready-mix concrete presence throughout France.
