Imerys, Transform to perform

Decentralization & Responsibility



Decentralization & Responsibility

Décentralisation & responsabilisation

Imerys operates in around 50 countries and owns more than 250 industrial sites. These characteristics explain why it has such a decentralized structure conducive to action, responsiveness and well-calculated risk-taking. Transparency and acceptance of responsibility are the natural benefits resulting from these very specific imperatives.

Furthermore, the Group is constantly evolving, developing its range of products and services, adapting to its environment and improving. In this context, the spirit of initiative must be accompanied by a constant focus on teamwork, networking and communication with a very wide range of contacts, both internal and external. That is why simplicity, openness and strong interpersonal skills are also favored by Imerys.

Being Imerys is to have the five following characteristics.

One of the striking characteristics of Imerys is our direct, down-to-earth style.
