In Riom (Puy-de-Dôme), Bacacier wants to hire to continue its rise

At the Bacacier site, in Riom, the initial raise plan was hampered by Kingspan’s takeover of his company. Things have accelerated for this company that specializes in the production of metal cladding for buildings.

Today, to ramp up the required speed, the company is launching a recruitment campaign. Sixty-five jobs will be filled, of which about thirty are related to the Riom site, where about 80 employees already work.
From 2019 to 2021, the company has already grown from 500 to 590 employees. But staffing needs are still important to allow the development of activities. So Kingspan Bacacier is looking for sales representatives, engineers for R&D department, maintenance or logistics agents, etc.

At the moment, production at the Rio location is still measured. Only the panels are manufactured for the general market (about 10,000 tons per year) and the simple purlin (about 1,500 tons per year).

But the group’s desire is to move quickly. A new limb manufacturing line is being installed and is expected to enter service in the second quarter of this year. The first production line of sandwich panels for insulated buildings should be installed and production started at the beginning of 2023 with a gradual increase. The second line should enter service in 2024. Finally, the insulation board production line will be commissioned during the second quarter of 2023.

More than 25 million Euros have been invested

Activities and employees still at Aigueperse (66 employees doing the characterization) must be brought back to the Rio site in 2024 or 2025, sooner than initially planned.

In total, according to Cedric Bruges, president of the Kingspan Bacacier Group, more than 25 million euros should be invested in the Rio site. “Our investments may approach 70 million euros by 2030,” adds Jean-Christophe Figorou, Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

Desiring to be part of the logic of sustainable development, Kingspan Bacacier has presented himself with a business plan for the coming years. For example, a shaded house covered with photovoltaic panels should be installed above the parking lot. “This is the first step in a more comprehensive reflection in which the entire roof of our buildings (ie 80,000 square metres) will be equipped with photovoltaic panels,” explains Jean-Christophe Figuero.
