What once started as a regional wholesaler for construction products in 1991 has now developed to an internationally recognized company providing solutions for forward-looking construction on the construction site and at the precast concrete plant. BT innovation has customers in more than 70 countries all over the world, is well-established at international trade fairs, and is cooperating with trade partners in all essential markets.
The team – multidisciplinary, related to practice, and international
Several professional disciplines assemble in the international research and development team: ranging from the construction engineer to the chemist, physicist and electrical engineer through to the mechanical engineer. The large variety of know-how provides for new perspectives and brings new solutions to the market. The highskilled employees are anxious to keep identifying requirements and weak spots in the production process and on the construction site and developing new products for solving the same. The aim is to simplify and to accelerate working processes by means of high-quality products which are user friendly and efficient. In this process, the company makes also use of the competencies of testing institutes and universities of the its vast network. The large number of patents and certifications granted, but also all awards and prizes won for the products developed endorse the course pursued and are incentive to think about the future of construction and even further ahead.
Consulting for everyday practice, in an independent and competent manner
Aside from the three core competencies: sealing technology, joining technology, and magnet technology and shuttering, great importance is attached to consulting. As an independent and competent partner, BT innovation offers a wide variety of consulting services for the precast concrete industry. The range encompasses analysis, planning and realization of modern production plants. The company provides advice to precast concrete factories intending to expand their capacities purposefully or striving for a higher quality in their production, or offers advice and support in case of planned investments so as to avoid misdirected investments. The experienced staff members are specialists in the field of precast concrete production, have long-term, international practical experience and engineering expertise.
Buildings are responsible of 40% of the greenhouse gas emissions of the European Union (See here). The most urgent concerns of landowners at the beginning of this century are minimizing energy consumption of new buildings and reducing energy waste of old ones through facades retrofit. Growing impacts of global warming in our daily lives make it urgent. Since the year 2010, FIXINOX primary focus has been the development of custom made solutions for facades cladding supports which minimize thermal bridging.
FIXINOX is a family owned company that employs nearly 50 professionals, it manufactures its products in Charleroi Belgium, mostly for the European market. The success of our young company relies on:
Choosing stainless steel as raw material for anchors design and manufacture. Stainless steel adds to the lowest thermal permeability, the best fire resistance among corrosion resistant metals available.
Using internal software for 3D thermal modelling. The thermal performances of the ventilated facades are checked according to the most up to date codes and standards.
Upon a team of talented young engineers internally educated. They are of French or Dutch mother language and all work in English when necessary.
While being watchful upon reducing thermal bridges on façade FIXINOX does not neglect other physical and market targets: Load calculations pertinent to dead load, wind, snow and seismic loads are implemented according to local regulations.
FIXINOX designs systems that can be easily installed under conditions representative of site environment. Since these conditions are full of surprises FIXINOX remains highly flexible in design process and items deliveries in order to meet the requirements.
FIXINOX is a new member of the ECS Association.
We are glad to announce that we had our membership approved by the ECS association.

The brands HALFEN, DEHA and FRIMEDA are among the market leaders. Since its founding in 1929, the company has specialised in innovative, technologically advanced solutions that are tailored to the customer – with the most exacting demands on technology, quality and safety. HALFEN innovations have led the way in the industry, and continue to. The company aims to play a part in shaping progress in the future, too. With that in mind, it invests in research and working with universities.
As an international company, HALFEN is aware of its global and local social responsibility and meets this obligation actively. The company manufactures its products at two production sites in Germany (Langenfeld and Artern) and at a plant in Poland. HALFEN is represented by its national organisations in twelve countries; products are available via distributors in more than 35 countries.
Actively shaping the future! That is the company’s primary maxim. With a user-oriented sales organisation, a strong and specialised engineering department, fast and flexible logistics and internationally available products, HALFEN has laid the basic foundations for that.
With its broad product portfolio, which includes the DETAN rod systems, the design possibilities offered by HALFEN are almost limitless.
