This diversification has always been accompanied by new challenges that have made it possible to ensure the company's sustainability:
In 1994 a stonemasonry business complemented the decorative gravel and chippings business, from imported noble materials (granite, marble, quartz, ceramics); bit by bit this business was equipped with the best high-precision CNC type machines (with numerical control)
1998: E. Victor-Meyer took over the red marble quarry in Neuville, where two quarries for sand, chippings and gabion stones were operated; our marble is known as "Rouge Royal"...?
2000: E. Victor-Meyer opened its transhipment and storage centre in Hermalle-sous-Argenteau (Albert Canal): covering almost 6 hectares, EVM increased the value of numerous minerals by processing them into construction elements, which were in particular demand in the architectural concrete sector; these aggregate and chippings are valued just as much by concrete manufacturers as by building material dealers or in outdoor installations.
2007: the Hermalle site is equipped with a bagging system for sacks and big bags.
2010: still in Hermalle, the activities were complemented by the commissioning of a plant for filling – by vibration – steel baskets with gabion stones in a wide range of colours; the "Stone-Cubes" by E. Victor-Meyer were now recognised on the market for both road construction and garden decoration.
2017: Hermalle was expanded; by taking over the Collinet company's business, the site doubled its surface area to 12 hectares and its activities were further diversified: EVM was set to continue its development in the future under its own brand PREBEL with the production of structural elements in pre-stressed concrete (prefabricated slabs, lintels, concrete beams, ...).
From 2020, these precast pre-stressed concrete floors will be supplied with Bénor certification, reaffirming the high quality image that the company wants to secure.
