Allow Fives FCB to keep a leading technical knowledge in the cement activity.
Ensure its autonomy for the conception of its equipment, the definition and the development of its own processes.
Ensure the technical assistance and the necessary expertise for the definition, the setting or the optimization of processes, and also the resolution of production difficulties.
Means and facilities
To reach its targets with success, the research center has its own pilot facilities, its own physical and chemical laboratories, all appropriated means for measuring, analyzing and testing.
