Sacmi-Cosmec, new strategic customer on the Tunisian market

A comprehensive order for Ideal Brique which recently installed and successfully started up a new plant for the manufacture of 1,000 tons of fired product a day

Sacmi-Cosmec has just made a key sale to Tunisian firm Ideal Brique, which recently installed a complete plant for the manufacture of 1000 tons of fired product a day. The plant, the biggest in terms of size and output capacity ever built in Tunisia, was tested and started up in record time, much to the satisfaction of the customer company.

This large, diversified Sacmi-Cosmec order involved general modernisation of the kiln department and a complete overhaul of all existing automation, from cutting, loading and unloading of the dryer to stacking and unloading of the fired product (including a fully automated truck loading system). The firm’s flagship products (the line is already running at full capacity as regards the products B8, B12, Hourdis and Platrierre) are its floor blockwork packs, which the renewed Ideal Brique plant can configure in three different ways to meet all the industry’s production and/or sale needs.

This ambitious project sees Sacmi-Cosmec gain a strategic customer in the extremely dynamic North Africa area, the focus of the Sacmi Group Heavy Clay Division’s growth and development prospects. At the same time, Ideal Brique’s decision to employ the best European technology to implement is expansion policies has made the Tunisian firm a leading player on the local market.

Following several plant engineering successes in the Maghreb, the Sacmi Group aims to intercept the growing local demand for complex, high quality heavy clay products built with European technology. As the high-grade order for Ideal Brique demonstrates, another distinctive Sacmi quality is the capacity to provide customers with close support right from the design stage thanks to a far-reaching, organised market presence that means fast technical support and assistance.
