Innovation & Performance
Innovation, at the heart of our projects
Our history is built on innovation, thanks to the invention of our founder Mr André Labaronne. A true visionary, he never stopped perfecting his original product, filing seven patents dedicated to water storage in the space of 10 years.
Proud of this heritage, which is the heart of our company’s history, we have continued to innovate and improve its solutions.
Among our flagship and revolutionary innovations of the flexible tank:
- In 2001, our design office developed the Mérou-Viti® patent, which essentially responds to the constraints of small and medium-sized wineries in managing their effluents.
- A few years later, we designed an equipment to prevent risks due to the suction of the cloth: the antivortex. Today, this innovation benefits everyone!
So innovation has its roots in our identity. We are always striving to find better ones. This innovation, which is the pride of our teams, is based on a strategic factor: our know-how of over 60 years.
Guarantees and Certifications
Each year, Labaronne-Citaf produces nearly 3000 flexible tanks for many countries and for different sectors of activity (civil protection, international humanitarian organisations, agriculture, industry and public works, local authorities and the environment).
Whatever our field of activity, our profession requires experience that our teams have acquired over the years. Our professionalism has paid off. More than just words, we wanted to reassure you in your choice by providing guarantees that are recognised in France and internationally. To do this, we have set up working groups with other professionals to develop new norms and standards, and to ensure that your storage is completely safe.
Discover below the main qualifications acquired by Labaronne-Citaf over the years:
In 2009, we were the first manufacturer of flexible tanks to obtain the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Standard.
This international standard confirms our desire to continuously improve, in order to increase efficiency and customer satisfaction.
In 2010, we were the first company to obtain the Q.B. (Building Quality) certification for our products, thus making the flexible tank market evolve towards greater safety for users. This certification, issued by the CSTB (Scientific and Technical Centre for Construction), attests to the conformity of flexible tanks for fire protection.
In 2017, we were also a driving force in the development of the 1st French Standard (NF) for flexible fire reserves. This standard known as NF S62-250 defines the rules for installation, acceptance and maintenance of equipment dedicated to fire fighting.
