Groupe Pigeon is a leading regional player in the production of ready-to-use concrete and the prefabrication of heavy and light concrete elements, particularly reinforced concrete for the construction of agricultural buildings and civil engineering elements. Groupe Pigeon has technical and transversal know-how in all industrial processes: upstream formulation, design office and methods, production and transport of ready-mix concrete and concrete elements (heavy and light).
A diversified service offering and leading technical solutions
Ready-mix concrete is at the heart of Groupe Pigeon's industrial and economic dynamics. Few builders in the West of France master the entire industrial process of ready-mix concrete—from the raw materials used to delivery on site— allowing Groupe Pigeon to offer global and relevant solutions, both technically and economically.
Groupe Pigeon is also a regional player in the prefabrication of concrete elements, both heavy for construction (housing, public works, agricultural buildings) and light for landscaping (blocks, paving stones and borders).
The various ready-mix concrete production and prefabrication plants give Groupe Pigeon the production capacity, autonomy, and responsiveness needed to satisfy its customers and partners. The prefabrication activity has also internalised and developed the Design, Methods, Quality and Logistics, and Works departments, so as to offer a global and integrated quality service to its customers.
To keep up with the constant evolution of the concrete markets, Groupe Pigeon has developed high-performance production tools, backed by the expertise of CBTP Laboratory. The know- how that Groupe Pigeon has acquired and developed over more than 40 years enables it to respond to the supply of ready-mixed concrete for private individuals as well as to the definition of innovative formulas for specific concrete for major or exceptional industrial works (Le Mans/Rennes High Speed Line, Line B of the Rennes Metro, etc.).
The same applies to heavy and light prefabricated concrete elements. The expertise developed and the performance of the industrial tools allow Groupe Pigeon to supply complex large volumes of high-quality elements such as slabs, aged paving stones, but also blocks, beams and walls, notably for international industrial players working in renewable energy.
Secure supply thanks to significant industrial resources and a local geographic network
Groupe Pigeon owns 24 concrete plants, spread throughout the different departments of France’s Greater West. The close relationship between the concrete plants and Groupe Pigeon's quarries, renowned for the quality of their aggregates, coupled with a fleet of more than 100 truck mixers, ensures a secure supply and a top quality service. The permanent support of Groupe Pigeon's CBTP Laboratory is a source of excellence for the formulation of all types of concrete, and Groupe Pigeon is thus able to intervene on all types of sites: private individuals, large-scale works, and exceptional sites.
Groupe Pigeon also has 4 prefabrication plants for concrete elements: two plants dedicated to heavy prefabrication and two light prefabrication plants, one of which is recent and benefits from innovative industrial processes ensuring high production rates and top quality levels. The four production sites allow Groupe Pigeon to cover a wide range of products and to intervene on large-scale sites, particularly in the field of renewable energies with its European industrial partners, but also with its local, agricultural and industrial customers.
Faced with the constant evolution of the various concrete and prefabrication markets, Groupe Pigeon has developed its equipment and industrial means accordingly. Today, Groupe Pigeon offers a wide range of quality products, from foundation concretes, self-placing concretes, decorative concretes, blocks and breeze-blocks, to beams, silos, stringers, walls and panels or stables intended for the agricultural sector, but also for building materials dealers and the construction industry.
