Premadun sets up in Dunkirk

Premadun sets up in Dunkirk

(Posted on 20/12/19)

MAHIEU CONSTRUCT SA, a Belgian company based in Comines (B), specialising in the design, manufacture and assembly of industrial and agricultural buildings made of steel frame or reinforced concrete, has signed a building lease for the occupation of land in the municipality of Loon-Plage with the President of the Executive Board of Dunkerque-Port.

As part of its development dynamic, MAHIEU CONSTRUCT SA wishes to set up a new activity for the production of prefabricated parts made of reinforced concrete.

To launch the business, MAHIEU CONSTRUCT has created a limited liability company under French law, PREMADUN SARL.

The land, with an area of 1 hectare, which will be used to house the manufacturing facility for prefabricated parts used in construction or for building, is located near the Pont à Roseaux, on the Route des prés Février, in Loon-Plage.

In the first phase of the project, the concrete will be delivered ready for use by the Flandres Béton Company located in the River Port area in Loon-Plage. In the second phase, PREMADUN plans to manufacture its own concrete on its site.

PREMADUN should start up business in the first quarter of 2020.
