2016 IFAT fair: lots of innovations by FAYAT Sweeping pole!
The IFAT fair, the reference in the field of environment, celebrated its 50 years in Munich this year. This edition set a new record by attracting 138,000 visitors from more than 170 countries. The Fayat group was present again through its three brands Mathieu, Ravo and Scarab: they demonstrated 10 innovative materials.
The international orientation of the IFAT fair is growing continuously: in 2016, one visitor out of two was not from Germany. The FAYAT Road Building Equipment Division was represented by its Sweeping pole consisting of MATHIEU, RAVO and SCARAB.
This combined presence by the three companies offered impact and visibility to the booth and the new solutions highlighted during the event: the new MATHIEU MC 210 and RAVO’s HYGiON.
The New MATHIEU MC 210 has a new cab entirely redesigned to offer more space and comfort to operators, useful technologies for an easier operation and latest-generation clean engines (EURO 6 / TIER IV). HYGiON is the latest RAVO sweeper. This model is equipped with a unique PM10 and PM2.5 capture system from the airflow of the machine by positive ionisation. It is safe for operators and it does not affect the sweeping performance in anyway.
The frequentation, higher than during the last edition, enabled to meet new contacts and valuable prospects. Their enthusiastic feedback about the innovations demonstrated during the show was the perfect conclusion to a successful week!
Marini Open Days: Two days to meet customers,dealers and to show new ways of communication
MARINI Open Days took place last October in Alfonsine. Italian customers and some foreign delegations had the opportunity to pre-view 2 new asphalt plants that will be exhibited at bauma: the XPRESS, mobile plant with production up to 200 tph and the BETOWER, transportable plant, production up to 160 tph. The new plants found favor with customers and the 1st XPRESS has been immediately sold!!
Good success also for the cold mix plant Packliner Compact (SAE) and the emulsion plant Emulpack (MARINI-ERMONT). BOMAG was showing its range of products for soil, asphalt as well as light equipments.
The Open Days have been the right event to illustrate MARINI history, the present and the view of the future to customers and dealers in a modern art form: the video mapping. Through light and sound the perception of reality is transformed. The sensational performance, with special surreal effects, gave the viewers a unique, awe-inspiring, emotional experience. Through video mapping MARINI has transformed its company brand into a thrilling and exciting 3D experience.
Secmair wins a trophy for international development
At the International Connecting Day on 1st October, organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Nantes Saint-Nazaire (France), Secmair won the VIE Trophy for its international commitment. The award was given by Matthias Fekl, Secretary of State for Foreign Trade, the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad.
It was in his capacity as Secretary of State for Foreign Trade that Matthias Fekl praised the action undertaken by the Secmair teams to develop their company in foreign markets via a VIE (volunteers in business) programme.
Prominent on all five continents, Secmair was looking to set up for the long term in Asia-Pacific. A business developer was hired on a VIE programme with the help of the Pays de la Loire region. He worked in one of the Fayat subsidiaries in Singapore in order to assess the maturity of the markets. This strategic choice of location just a few hours’ flight from numerous countries in south-east Asia turned out to be the right one, so much so that the VIE was renewed last March for a one-year period.
The trophy awarded on 1st October is just reward for the international development strategy of Secmair and only serves to fuel the company’s ambition to strengthen economic ties with Asia-Pacific.
Intermat 2015, successful again
Our teams had the pleasure of welcoming a large number of visitors from some 80 countries at the 2200-m2 FAYAT booth, where around a hundred equipments were on display.
The 2015 edition of the Intermat fair has been more than satisfactory: 183,000 admissions - a third of them foreign visitors - and 1,410 exhibiting companies (+5% against 2012).
This time round, Fayat Road Equipment had around 100 machines on display. Innovation took pride of place, including some world-firsts.
FAYAT Road Equipment, awarded at Intermat Innovation Awards 2015
The new-generation continuous asphalt plantRF 160 NEO by Marini-Ermont was distinguished with a Bronze Medal in the Construction Equipment category at the Intermat Innovation Awards 2015.
FAYAT is the only company having ever received at least one Award at each session since the Intermat Innovation Awards were created (2000).
A world first in terms of energy consumption, thanks largely to our ECO-technologies (ECOdry, ECOdrive, ECOenergy, ECOstart, ECOflame and RECYCLEAN), the RF 160 Neo also stands out due to the limited environmental impacts of each component, in compliance with the requirements for sustainable road-building.
This new-generation, recycling, continuous asphalt plant, whose smart modular design allows it to be configured to meet clients' needs, is also easy and intuitive to use.
The RF 160 Neo – the latest in the range of new-generation asphalt plants – has been designed and developed by Marini-Ermont, the world leader in continuous-type hot-mix asphalt plant technology, which has marketed over 700 asphalt plants worldwide since it joined the Fayat Group in 1987.
The Marini-Ermont RF 160 Neo will be displayed as a world première during the forthcoming Intermat 2015 show – Villepinte (Paris), 20th – 25th April 2015.
FAYAT at the first major congress dedicated to road maintenance
This winter, Paris hosted the Pavement Preservation and Recycling Summit - the first major congress dedicated to road maintenance. The optimisation of resources, research concerning pertinent technical solutions and the sharing of new solutions that have been tested in different countries, were the key issues of this major international conference.
The staging of a single congress, dedicated to maintenance in the broadest sense of the term and jointly organised by the best American and European specialists, reveals the importance of this issue. The FAYAT Group, presenting one stand and two papers–dedicated to maintenance techniques using fibreglass-reinforced emulsion (SECMAIR) and hot-mix asphalt production using the RF NEO (ERMONT)–was one of the leading equipment manufacturers at this conference held in February 2015.
A Product Line deeply rethought for our Division
The FAYAT group’s traditional range focuses on European countries. International development (Asia, North and South Americas) has produced specific ranges and the integration of leading brands and world-renowned products (CMI, CEDARAPIDS…). The need to clarify and synthesise the range became clear: what choice, what alternatives, depending on the relevant country and area? Advice and guidance are especially important given that specifications and recommendations, in terms of standards and environmental safety, vary considerably from one geographical area to another.
The 2015 FAYAT Product Line therefore takes a new direction.
Change in form, more concise and shorter, but above all, a change in substance. Only road technology products are concerned and presented in the chronology of the road life cycle, the backbone of the FAYAT group’s strategy. Other products concerning foundations and/or the environment and urban waste are covered by specific documents prepared by our specialised companies.
The 2015 Product Line is also universal, as the Group’s ranges are presented worldwide. Recommendations are based on multiple summarising normative requirements (e.g. emissions), service facilities, local competitiveness, given the costs of transport, import taxes, etc.
Our standard range may, however, be supplemented with specific offers, outside the Product Line.

The FAYAT Group hosts an ISO standards meeting
In September, in the wine storerooms of Château Clément Pichon, the FAYAT Group hosted the working group tasked with revising the EN 500 European standards that are set to become EN ISO standards.
These standards, on the safety of mobile road building machinery, cover a very broad range of equipment including planers, soil stabilisers, vibratory plates and asphalt paver-finishers.
18 participants, of 5 different nationalities (Germany, France, United States, Japan and Sweden) and representing equipment manufacturers, public organisations, professional organisations and entrepreneurs were able to address some of the 125 preliminary comments drawn up by the Member State representatives.
With an opportunity to taste Fayat wines at a free cocktail that the Group organised, the participants were unanimous in praising the quality of the organisation and exceptional working conditions prepared for them over these two days.
