Argilus, the manufacturer of clay-based renders which puts ecology at the heart of its research
One of the main challenges of the 21st century will be the climate and environment on our planet. Our economies will have to adapt to new environmental rules if we want to preserve and improve our way of life. ARGILUS contributes to these changes by offering products which are clean and healthy for your home.
ARGILUS is the leading French manufacturer of renders and clay-based products, stuccoes and distempers
ARGILUS is located in the Vendée department (85) in the west of France between la Roche-sur-Yon and Luçon. The company has its own clay quarries close to its manufacturing and conversion site which covers roughly 10 hectares and includes 3,000 m² of buildings.
3 production lines are necessary for the manufacture of renders, distempers, concrete and cob.
They have been designed and studied specifically to ensure that the clay can be worked on them under the best possible conditions.
