Our contribution

Our lightweight solutions, such as drywall constructions are easily demountable. By minimizing the load on the buildings’ foundations they contribute to lighter constructions for future building extensions. By implementing more and more recycling services, GYPROC aims to optimize the construction and end-of-life stages of its products. Also, some customized solutions are available to optimize the use of materials and to generate the least amount of waste.

Thanks to the eco-innovation approach, GYPROC is continuously improving the performance of its eco-friendly building materials as well as reducing the environmental impact and improving the sustainable design of its products
