The label Origine France Garantie
Metalu Plast is the first sports equipment manufacturer to obtain the Label Origine France Garantie for all its product ranges.
To obtain this label, the manufactured product must comply with the following two criteria: the place where the product has its essential characteristics must be located in France, and at least 50% of the unit cost price of the product must be acquired in France. In other words, unlike “Made in France”, finishing or packaging alone is obviously not enough to obtain this demanding label.
The heart of Metalu Plast is made up of its 4 teams: production, the design office, the sales team and the support team
- Design, creation of new products, evolution of existing products, load testing
- Studies of tailor-made projects
- Industrialization, scheduling, document database management
- Study and costing of Basketball structure and gymnasium equipment on plan, simulation of the best solution…
- Special sports fence with ball-stop: analysis of the technical feasibility of the project, calculation of the structure, study of the resistance of the materials. The design office recommends the most suitable layout: diameter and height of the posts, spacing between the posts, mesh size of the nets, it draws up the layout plans.
- Adaptation of standard products to a specific version (special dimensions, adapted anchoring system…)
