The combination of the Italian know-how and the strategic geographical position of the production create advantages both in terms of product cost and in terms of location charges, for those which have, for some time now, been the new major markets of this industrial production (Russian Federation, Kazakhstan and other CIS countries).
The use of Italian technology in the Serbian land has created the brand "made in Serbia", which allows the waiving of the customs duty to all the CIS countries.The company is located 100 km south of Belgrade, capital of Serbia, and covers a total area of 16,000 square meters with 4,000 square meters of the covered area that is dedicated to production. The plant is only 40 km from the Serbian town of Smederevo, home to logistics companies specializing in river transport which, through the Danube, reaches the great Black Sea ports.
OUR STRONG POINTS
STATE OF THE ART PLANTS
NEW GENERATION ITALIAN TECHNOLOGY
The production plants consist of three self-reacting tracks, two over 80 meters long and a shorter one dedicated to the most important sections. The production potential today is close to 900 hectares per year. All lines are equipped with a heating system for full control of the concrete maturation in order to keep the characteristics of the product unchanged, as weather conditions are changing. The quality of our product is the result of specific choices such as:
The concrete is composed of selected and guaranteed raw materials and is produced by a concrete mixing plant that is owned by us, the "Simem" brand, an Italian company that is a leader in this sector worldwide.
The smoothing, bevelling and cutting up to the final track cleaning phase are made using customized Italian technology.
The quality of the production plant is supported by professionals who, thanks to the experience gained in the prefabrication sector, guarantee a streamlined and effective process.
The production phases begin with the preparation of the concrete in our concrete mixing plant and continue immediately afterwards with the casting in the formwork.
It is followed by a mechanized part that involves smoothing and rounding of the poles extrados with fresh concrete. Once the maturation process has been completed, it is followed by a next step in which the process of lifting the poles and cutting take place (the lengths vary according to the client's requests), again using mechanized systems.
Finally, the breaking up and the stacking in the warehouse occur. The material is initially stored on a covered surface, and after a few days it is transferred to the external warehouse, waiting to be loaded in order to reach its destination.
QUALITY IS THE RESULT OF SELECTED RAW MATERIALS
We use a self-reacting SCC concrete composed of sand and crushed stone of various granulometries brand MB55 (C45/55) which represents the maximum degree of purity, cement portland CEM I 42,5R, to which performance additives are added for a recipe that, already in the first 16 post casting hours, allows us to reach a compressive strength of about 40 MPa.
It should be emphasized that with the use of additives in the concrete the air captured is eliminated both inside the cross section and on the surface of the pole itself, significantly increasing its resistance and considerably improving its aesthetic appearance.
The same additives, by neutralizing the water absorption in the pole, prevent the freezing processes in winter which cause the concrete to break up during the spring thawing phases. Finally, the additive is decisive for preventing the formation of mushroom spores and insect larvae, absolute enemies of the plantations, in the concrete structure.
