Located close to Castres (Tarn) in the heart of the Haut Languedoc regional park, this site specialises in producing facing and decorative products.

Processes at the plant, which has existed since the 18th century, were extensively modernised in 2008. It takes its name from the neighbouring locality of Rieussequel.

The plant is located along the D612 between Toulouse and Béziers, 12 km from Mazamet towards Béziers.

Rieussequel and its sister plant at Revel form the Façade/Decoration cluster.
