2018 was a good year for the Business Unit Expanded metal. The strategic repositioning of Métal Déployé with a focus on architecture is beginning to bear fruit. With revenue growth and an increase in gross margin of 0.8 percentage points, the result exceeded the challenging budget. The order book was well filled against a background of considerable market potential. The awareness of expanded metal and its artistic application is on the rise and it is supported by the opportunity to introduce architects to the product in the Métal Déployé showroom in Paris.
