M + Matériaux's Brands
RÉSEAU ÉNERGIE HABITAT (REH): POOLING EXPERTISE
The Perpignan branch is not only where we showcase our thermal performance products and solutions, it is also the region’s meeting point and centre of excellence.
Every week, architects, engineers and builders come to share product information in fields such as heating, ventilation, water heating, external thermal insulation and home automation and discuss the new regulations. We also organise talks jointly with bodies such as Greta, the chamber of commerce and industry, other local bodies and Socotec. Our dedicated staff organise these REH initiatives and lend their support to the all the agencies involved.
20 years old is a great age
2016 has been a year of celebration of M+ Matériaux. We began life with the objective of opening small sites in the gaps left by the big names in the merchant trade. This strategy has evolved over time and, above all, thanks to the commitment and hard work of our staff. Twelve years after the company was founded in 1996, M+ Matériaux was turning over 70 million euros a year when it struck a deal with the Samse Group. With the full weight of the Group behind it since, the brand has gone from strength to strength. M+ Matériaux doubled not only its number of branches (to 45, in the south-west of the country) but also its turnover. We organised a series of festive events to celebrate M+ Matériaux’s 20th birthday and thank all our staff who are behind our success day after day, the manufacturers who have been with us since the beginning and our customers for putting their faith in us.

The Perpignan Réseau Énergie Habitat store uses the house to present its energy performance, home automation and accessibility offer for the mobility-impaired. And here’s food for thought: it is claimed that 94% of France’s housing is no longer fit for purpose, in view of the changes in society and our ageing population...
