Founded in 2013 by Thierry Demaret (photo), a former Giordano employee and one of the most knowledgeable people in the solar thermal markets in France and overseas, Syrius Solar Industry has inaugurated its new headquarters and a new workshop for manufacturing solar thermal water heaters on a business park in Lavérune in the Hérault region. A success confirmed by a sales increase jump by 5 in three years but also a new building ! With one objective: to provide solar hot water to the inhabitants of the overseas territories, but also to those of mainland France and abroad, and, at the same time, to serve the energy transition…
Like the company’s success, the sun was out in mid-September at the inauguration of the new factory of Syrius Solar Industry in Lavérune, suburb of Montpellier. Thierry Demaret, the boss, was all smiles. And with good reason. His company Syrius Solar Industry, manufacturer of solar thermal water heaters, has just moved into its new premises. An investment of 1.2 million euros for 1,200 m² of space divided between the 800 m² workshop for production and stock, the 200 m² mezzanine and the 200 m² administrative offices. Syrius Solar Industry called on Philippe Banegas, architect DPLG, to create this tailor-made building which will enable Syrius to increase its production and continue its national and export development.
This new facility enables Syrius to manufacture domestic hot water tanks at a rate of about fifteen per day, solar thermal collectors with a production capacity of more than 70 units per day, as well as collector supports, allowing the collectors to be fixed to the roof. All these products are intended for private individuals, collective housing and industrial applications, both for new construction and/or renovation market. Environmentally friendly, solar water heaters allow access to the production of clean and renewable energy, without greenhouse gas emissions. A solar water heater can cover up to 100% of hot water needs, depending on the region, thanks to solar energy.
