Energy-intensive building

Martin Brower was founded in 1934 as the Brower Paper Company. In 2005: our platform in Beauvais is the first HQE (High QualityEnvironmental) warehouse designed in France. This center paved the way and served as the basis for establishing HQE standards in France. We are the first company in France for our sector to have acquired a quadruple certification (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000, OHSAS 18001) for all our sites. The certifications were renewed in 2014. We are known for delivering integrated supply chain solutions to the fast food industry. Our relationship of more than 50 years with McDonald's gives us a good perspective, and we know that the challenges of each client are unique. We work with restaurants to reduce their costs and develop a range of customized services that meet their current and future needs. From our traditional paper products to fries and proteins to fresh products, we bring all the products from a distribution center to a restaurant. We offer an order to our customers in connection with our order proposal tool. Customers can modify these before they are finalized, giving them the flexibility they need to operate with maximum efficiency. The La Brède project is a three-logistics logistics platform. It has been certified HQE - tertiary buildings in 2016 for an exceptional level and 4 star in energy. It is the first building to be certified in the realization phase at this level of excellence.
