Marine - Process Engineer
"I work at Terreal as a process engineer. It's a job where the missions are divided in two. The process and continuous improvement part and another part based on development. What I'm passionate about is the day-to-day work. It's also about going out into the field to understand the source of small problems and finding solutions to prevent them from happening again.

Terreal sponsors the association Le Printemps de Septembre
In 2021, TERREAL is sponsoring the association "Le Printemps de Septembre" to build an ephemeral brick pavilion at the Institut Supérieur des Arts et Design de Toulouse for the 30th edition of the "Le Printemps de Septembre" festival in Toulouse. With a donation of more than 2,300 bricks, TERREAL wished to support cultural and artistic initiatives as well as to participate in this educational project where specialised students learned how to build the structure. After the event, the bricks were collected by training centres in order to give them a second educational life.
Circular economy, study with ENSAL for the recovery of construction site soil
Since 2015, TERREAL has regularly offered study topics to young architectural students at ENSAL, whose mission is to experiment and prototype with materials for architectural projects. Nearly 5 projects by some thirty students have been presented in this way, two of which have led to the filing of patents. In 2021, Terreal proposed to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Lyon (ENSAL) a study partnership as part of its students' curriculum. This project, in line with the Group's commitment, highlights the interest of using these soils in combination with clay products, such as the Brique Hauteur d'Etage.
Reclamation of soil from the Toulouse metro with a temporary consortium of companies
BOUYER LEROUX, EDILIANS and TERREAL, leaders in the terracotta industry in France, have responded to a call for expressions of interest launched by TISSEO-INGENIERIE for the recovery of excavated material from the third line of the Toulouse metro and its connection to Line B.
With sites in the immediate vicinity of the construction site, the three companies have joined forces in a temporary joint venture (GME) in order to experiment with the recovery of excavated materials by integrating them into the manufacturing process of terracotta materials.
Earth & Art: an artistic residency in a factory
For several years, TERREAL has been pursuing a policy of sponsorship directly linked to our know-how, terracotta, to the Habitat and to the preservation of heritage. These sponsorships can take different forms. We have indeed renewed our support for associations for the preservation of heritage and rurality. We donate products to training and apprenticeship centres, artists' collectives and architectural reflection workshops. To continue this approach, we have decided to go further and involve our employees by welcoming a visual artist, Blandine Brière, for a 7-month artistic residency in one of our factories, the Bavent tile factory.
