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.

France's third-ranking port, Dunkirk is well known as a port handling heavy bulk cargoes for its numerous industrial installations. Classified as the 7th port of the North Europe Range which extends from Le Havre to Hamburg, it is also France's leading port for ore and coal imports; France's leading port for containerised fruit imports; France's leading port for copper imports; and France's second-ranking port for trade with Great Britain.
