Wishing to continue developing its services and specialize in these fields, SIMC is completely devoted to working alongside 4 other leading brands of the SAMSE group in the RFSEAU network, namely Christaud, Vaudrey, Billmat Canalisation and BTP Distribution. Thanks to this network, SIMC will be able to take advantage of shared services such as marketing or logistics, including a platform dedicated to water supply products. This will enable it to provide the best possible solution in terms of products and services to its customers. Their affiliation with the group, the quality of the stock and logistics in their branches, as well as the professional expertise of the men and women working at the 8 RFSEAU sites (Manosque, Istres, Marseille, Puyricard, Sollies-Pont, Avignon, Cadenet, Sarrians) contribute to SIMC’s status as a major player in public works in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.

In order to meet the expectations of the sanitation and drinking water pipeline contractors, SIMC emphasizes the technical quality of its employees who are specifically trained in these lines of business, enabling them to provide support from the study phase, throughout the construction phase and up to the operation of the network. Its drinking water supply and sanitation specialists provide advice to the project manager and client on all product ranges available on the market, including innovative products. These new technical solutions have been selected by RFSEAU at various international trade shows, with one single thing in mind: the continuous improvement of water networks.
