The transportation of something is the movement of objects, goods, or people (human or animal) from one place to another. The modes of transport include aviation, rail, road and maritime transport. The mode also depends on the type of vehicle or infrastructure used. Means of transportation may include the automobile, motorcycle, bus, metro, subway, tram, train, truck, helicopter, or airplane, etc.
In order to provide its customers with a permanent quality service, RESIMARMO® negotiates partnership agreements with major companies, leaders in their fields. These companies, renowned for their skills and seriousness, bring us their expertise in sectors that we have not necessarily been aware of. The international transports « FERCAM Austria » follow this logic.
Our main objective is to provide our clients with the most advanced services. Through five specialized divisions and partnerships of excellence, FERCAM offers a rare combination of skills and reference solutions in the sector, acting as a single multi-specialized interlocutor.
FERCAM‘s strengths such as operational excellence, state-of-the-art IT solutions and employees with specialized skills translate directly into competitive advantage for our customers. The transport is carried out in good conditions, deadlines are respected and the customer is satisfied. A simplified, low-complex internal organisation, operating through standardised, agile processes and supported by state-of-the-art information technology, provides the framework for a highly demanding interdisciplinary and multicultural professional environment that is capable of attracting and developing talent and rewarding autonomy, merit and commitment from all.
As everyone can see, the level of consumer demand has risen sharply in recent years and we at RESIMARMO® believe that this is a good thing. Availability of products, short (and respected) deadlines, value-added services must now be part of the companies’ customer promise or risk serious commercial disillusionment. These expectations have now greatly expanded.
Having acquired such habits in their consumer lives, professionals can no longer consider not benefiting from an equivalent level of service quality in their daily activities. This strong change in the level of requirements naturally has a strong impact on the supply chain and transport, its last link. A link without a net for which the slightest failure is noted « cash » and can therefore have devastating effects on the image of the company and its activity. Based on these findings and wishing to never leave anything to chance, RESIMARMO® decided to work in collaboration with FERCAM and entrust its transport service to it.
If by any chance you come across a FERCAM truck
one day on your way, think of us, RESIMARMO®,
because we are « partners » with these people !
Our European partners: France’s trade remains very European, even home-grown! Thus, it carries out almost half of the trade flows with European countries, which are mainly bordering. In the third quarter of 2017, the dynamism of exports to the European Union was confirmed (+2.2%, after +1.8%), particularly to Germany, Italy and the new Member States. RESIMARMO® achieves similar results in percentage terms. The « Brexit » was not without consequences for the group. The Italian management has decided to freeze the new sites in the United Kingdom until the English economic conditions for trade are better defined.
The top 10 partners, which represent two-thirds of our trade, remain mainly European and developed but now include two major emerging countries, China and Russia.
This is due to a number of factors. One of them is the empirically observed link in international trade between trade intensity on the one hand and geographical proximity and size of economies on the other hand (so-called « gravity » phenomenon).
In addition, for the EU and members of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) such as Switzerland, there is the existence of a « customs union » and, in the case of the euro area, a monetary union, which is likely to promote the development of trade.
Franco-German trade largely distances itself from the other 9 bilateral flows, with almost 17% of our exports, which is more than double the weight of the countries following Germany in the ranking.
Trade with Belgium and Italy remains important, between 7% and 8% – almost 4 times higher than that of the 10th partner. But for Belgium it is export, while for Italy it is import. Indeed, the great majority of our products are made in Italy.
China, Spain, the United States and the United Kingdom have a relatively close weight, between 5.5% and 6.5%.
The European Union as a whole remains our main trading partner, representing nearly 75% of our exports.
Let us summarise this from a macroeconomic point of view, in Europe the fall in the costs of our businesses and the increase in productivity have positive effects in terms of household and business incomes on the one hand and in terms of selling prices on the other. There is therefore an increase in both internal and external demand due to greater price competitiveness vis-à-vis the rest of the world. Consequently, the response to this rising demand is an increase in production: there is therefore economic growth that favours the improvement of the well-being of the population (increase in income, employment, etc.).
Secondly, the European Commission has always maintained that the organisation of « free competition » and « undistorted » is an exclusively European prerogative and that states cannot set their own competition rules. Three sets of arguments justify this.
All these measures and agreements between trading partners in Europe aim to balance the Eurozone and allow a strong growth of companies such as RESIMARMO® and other firms, small and medium-sized enterprises, SMEs, Medium-sized and large European companies.
Today, individual homeowners spend more time outdoors and invest more easily in the recreational areas around their homes. Finding ideas to customize their decor is therefore a priority. The terraces, relaxing areas and swimming pool beaches give them the opportunity to let their imagination run wild. This is a great way to give their outdoor spaces a special style.
In search of an ever more subtle design, the use of a touch of colour in the background is often enough to create a terrace that will stand out from that of its neighbour. With a little more audacity and originality, imagine what a custom flooring pattern can give to the inlaid flooring on the pool deck or terrace of your house.
When space permits, the integrated motives can make your terrace as attractive and stylish as the rest of your home. Customizable as you wish, the inlays are an excellent way to add this little extra something to your terrace that will make it unique.
Think about it, you may have a coat of arms, an acronym or even just initials that characterize your family and you may want to make it a ground motif that will personalize your home. A distinctive touch that belongs only to you.
Motives are not only a decorative element that personalizes your space. They also have a functional role. Indeed, they can advantageously divide large spaces and add visual interest to a large terrace. Modern designers even recommend them for these large, often monotonous spaces.
The motives inlaid in a terrace are often personalized creations because the possibilities are unlimited. If the possibilities are immense and that tends to make you dizzy, don’t worry, you can very well fall back on the great classics. The wind rose you will be able to customize, the waves and rounded lines, the squares or rectangles nested, the borders of different colors, there are many ways to customize your patterns.
The era of traditional terraces, unicoloured, square or rectangular with no special charm is over. Today we love life, nature, colors and inlays of personalized patterns provide decorative elements that will set you apart from the property of any man.
What motives will you integrate in your floors ? What colours are you going to put inside ? Too many ideas ? It’s normal they can be infinite !
James Moylan President of Design Builder, inc. once spoke on this subject, he said :
« The installation of inlaid motives is an excellent way to break the visual monotony of large terraces of more than 20 feet (about 6 meters) long… »
« In order to position the inlay correctly, it is necessary to take into account your furnishings and decor. As for the choice of motives, I, for my part, recommend simplicity – subtle but flairful motives. »
The colours will make your floor a marvel of design. Different shades will give a top-of-the-range appearance and careful workmanship. From deep tones to soft colours, you can choose from all these basic colours. By combining them together it is possible to create more than 24000 different shades.
This floor covering has many advantages:

A marble resin is a polymeric product (natural, artificial or synthetic) that is a basic material for the manufacture of plastics, textiles, paints (liquid or powder), adhesives, varnishes, polymer foams, etc. It can be thermoplastic or thermosetting.
A solid or semi-fluid, vitreous, flammable, water-insoluble, yellow or brown-coloured organic substance, spontaneous or induced exudation of certain plants, particularly conifers and terebinthaceous plants (this substance extracted from pine and fir).
In a reinforced plastic material, marble resin, also known as a matrix, is a very fluid or highly viscous matrix, used as a binder to make contact between the various reinforcing particles, such as fibres, balls or microspheres (small spherical geometry particle with a diameter of the order of one micrometer[between 1 µm and 1 mm]. The micro-spheres are sometimes called « micro-particles » or « microbead » of glass.
For example, SMC (Sheet Moulding Compound) prepregs include polyester resin, reinforcement (matt, fabric or fibre), fillers and a pre-mixed catalyst (hardener). This ready-moulded mixture for hot compression molding is in sheet form.
Since the term « plastic » has a pejorative connotation for some consumers, the word « resin » is often used by manufacturers in place of « plastic » and marble resin follows the same logic.
The SPI coding system for the identification of resins is a code developed in 1988 by the Society of the Plastics Industry to facilitate the sorting and recycling of plastic bottles and containers.
It is adopted in Germany as DIN 6120, then in Europe, and is applied voluntarily by manufacturers, but must nevertheless comply with a precise codification in accordance with a European Commission decision of 28 January 1997 (97/129/EC).
Technical certifications obtained
The RESIMARMO® partner network is a network of many people scattered throughout the various regions of Italy, France and other European Community countries. Some are distributors and others are applicators through their technical teams. To meet the needs of our customers, we have created this network of partners. We had to respect our commitments and provide specific technical advice, in order to offer targeted advice to the different projects. We also need to define our customers’ aspirations, where possible, before they are even formulated. In addition, our advice must be appropriate to the needs identified.
All RESIMARMO® partners can visit the virtual showroom that we have put online for them on the Internet. It is much easier for everyone to meet each other on the web and talk to each other, than to see each other physically because of the distances that sometimes separate them. There is a good atmosphere between partners and everyone is committed to participating in the expansion of RESIMARMO® and the success of the network. They are also aware that customer satisfaction must take precedence over personal considerations.
The Applicators are people who apply various products and apply application techniques. Affiliated applicators apply the RESIMARMO® product to customers. More than 250 partner companies collaborate with RESIMARMO® throughout France and more than two hundred others in Italy. Coming from the profession of renovation or exterior decoration, their personnel receive specific training in the implementation of floor decoration systems by us. In addition, site visits are regularly carried out by our supervising staff, preventing potential problems.
The installation teams are therefore only authorized to install the systems and a RESIMARMO® applicator certificate is issued to them every year. They respond in a short time to all consultations by providing skills and care in the execution of installation works, thus ensuring a reliable and durable service. The RESIMARMO® applicators network is composed of specialized, independent, certified and trained contractors. They ensure the correct implementation of RESIMARMO®, systems, according to precise know-how. We have identified for you independent professional applicators and experts in the laying of marble flooring, we have trained them and they all meet the quality criteria required by RESIMARMO®.
These applicators are mostly independent, others can be part of in-house installation teams. The applicators in our network were selected, then trained in the preparation and application of our products according to strict standards. In the criteria for obtaining the status of RESIMARMO® applicator, we ask for the decennial insurance coverages necessary for each of them. They will listen to you, respond to your needs, guide you, advise you and respect all the installation instructions of RESIMARMO® we request the necessary ten-year insurance coverages for each of them. All have adhered to the quality charter.
