The VM Matériaux Group posted turnover of ¤707.0 million for the full 12 months of 2011, a year-on-year increase of 12.1% (+5.6% like-for-like). This performance is driven by the three Group's operating divisions.
VM Matériaux pursued a balanced development policy throughout the year, combining internal investment and acquisitions. The Group expanded its international presence with the trans-Atlantic acquisition of Quebec-based Fenêtres Lapco (manufacturer of PVC joinery).
The Group also maintained its innovation strategy, enriching its offer in the green building segment.
While VM Matériaux is approaching fiscal 2012 with caution due to the lack of visibility afforded by current economic conditions, the Group remains confident about its fundamentals.
In January 2012 the Group confirmed its presence in the west of France, increasing its stake in Havraise de Matériaux (HM Matériaux) from 50% to 75%. With seven branch offices in Normandy, the company has established itself as one of the leading distributors of building materials. HM Matériaux generated turnover of ¤33.9 million in 2011 and was accounted for by the equity method. It will be fully consolidated in the operations of VM Matériaux in 2012.
