The Resin Workshop
Our Resin Workshop is equipped to thermoform and obtain the most complex deformations. At headquarters, we devote an area of 1,500 m2 to solid surfaces. We obtain deformations of the order of 180% and can exert pressures of 800 bars per cm2, without breaking the material. The variety of possible implementations offers particularly innovative decorative solutions. Curved, sculpted, inlaid, printed, textured, veined, glittered, or even assembled with other materials, the resin bends to the most fertile imaginations and offers the most sophisticated shaping possibilities.
The finishing workshops
All of the CAA Group’s manufacturing units have fully equipped lacquer and varnish finishing workshops, including digital for high quality finishes. Our Compagnons develop their own formulas and accumulate many jealously guarded “trade secrets”. Wood, metal, resin, glass and even natural stone finishes are carefully implemented, internally, by highly qualified teams. From color matching to the application of satin, matte, glossy lacquers and all shades, the results are down to the shade.
Special manufacturing workshops
Reserved for complex and non-standard works, our special Fabrications Workshops are those of tailor-made, very high-level personalization and masterful pieces. Our Compagnons carry out monumental works, unique examples and the most spectacular architectural challenges. The assembly of materials and the integration of special functions are also carried out with particular care.
Our Veneer Workshops offer a very wide range of wood or laminate coatings. Oak, walnut, maple, burl, beech and all species without exception can be applied to the panels. Concerned about respecting the measures in favor of the environment taken by the CAA Group, our Compagnons develop their own sizing formulas, using aqueous bases in the context of the avoidance of solvents.
Equipped and structured to meet large series demands, these workshops with specific organizations ensure serial production that reconciles rates, calendar requirements and consistency in the quality of furniture and fittings. In conjunction with our integrated logistics service, our teams are able to ensure national and international deployments, including simultaneously. A rigorous traceability system and the practice of continuous monitoring guarantee constant quality from part to part. Our serial productions with large accounts are managed by intranets dedicated to each brand or group, in order to report in real time.
