We often start by precutting and toppling large masses, then cutting them into blocks, once the blocks of stone have been quarried, they must be transformed into products that can be used in construction.
This transformation takes place in Rocamat' s 16 factories and workshops, lyon, Buxy, Lerouville, Euville, Savonnieres, St-Maximin, Jeumont, Laval, Caen, Ravieres, Massangis, Corgoloin, Comblanchien, Sault-Brenaz, Chauvigny, Vilhonneur, Sireuil, Nantes, and Bordeaux.

A block is a mass of stone, usually a parallelepiped, blocks are raw products extracted from quarries and destined to be manufactured.
A part of extracted blocks without imperfections are sold to stone manufacturers such as stone masons, marbles or granites sawyers, blocks with small imperfections and small size blocks are used to produce small size finished products, slabs are semi-finished products with 2 parallel faces sawn, obtained from a process of sawing blocks.
