/ International Group

The Poujoulat group is the European leader in metal chimney flue systems; TF is one of its subsidiaries. Providing a guarantee for the stability of the company, the group also gives TF greater purchasing weight when negotiating for materials. In a more transverse way, TF benefits from the expertise in communication, technological intelligence, HR, etc. Being a member of the Poujoulat group is a key strength for TF, and an advantage for its clients.

/ Expertise

TF’s knowledge is based not only on its technical expertise, but also on its global understanding of the universe in which it operates.

 

Firstly, TF is an expert in transforming metals and in combining them with multiple materials such as wood, fabric, ceramic and more. This expertise also comprises advice on possible materials, textures and finishings. In addition, over the years TF has acquired a broad expertise in the scope of each brand.
Regarding the urban space, TF URBAN masters not only the normative aspects, but also aims to enhance the value of public spaces, especially locations where urban furniture is installed. In displays and signs, TF SIGNAL has an excellent understanding of the various clients and their expectations.
Starting from a common objective, communicating to the public, there are multiple solutions, from the simplest strip, through a customised furniture, to a connected panel. The sales team fully supports clients in making their choices.
Finally, with TF CREATION, the company offers confidence and peace of mind to the “creative” in charge of the project.

/ R & D

The RDI Service (Research, Development & Innovation) studies both client projects and the company’s own products.

 

The multidisciplinary team masters a large range of processes and technologies that are practiced within the company or at our partners. It gives particular attention to monitoring developments that could lead to testing of new materials or technologies.

Defining requirements

When a new project is started, the RDI service defines the requirements, expectations and context with the client.

Design and modelling

The team researches the most suitable solutions to meet the project requirements. It then kicks off the design stage, in which the entire project is modelled in 3D. With this step complete, the production drawings are created.

Prototyping

The team creates a full-size prototype that is used to verify or potentially to optimise the technical choices defined during the study. With its dedicated studio, the RDI service can ensure a faster response time.

/ Studio TF

The TF studio is made up of three people, each of whom contributes his own expertise and perspective.

The team’s mission within the company is to propose pre-projects that respond to a brief, integrating a careful reflection on the design, including use, functions, look and ergonomics. The studio also collaborates with many international designers on various products such as furniture, architecture and signage.

/ Commitment

The company is committed to meeting its environmental responsibility, acting within a process of continuous improvement that is evaluated through ISO 14001.

 

Each year TF reduces the environmental impact of its products and processes.

TF bases its management approach on the Kaizen philosophy, in which each employee can participate with contributions and ideas to improve the company.

This approach, initiated in 2014, places the company on the path to real continuous improvement in which all employees can thrive and fulfil themselves.

In 2021, our professional equality index will be 75.

Through our brands TF URBAN, TF SIGNAL and TF CREATION, we offer fun and user-friendly solutions, real living spaces, for the well-being, comfort and quality of life of users. We work to ensure that they are perfectly integrated into the public or private space in order to facilitate their appropriation by citizens and to participate in the dynamism and attractiveness of neighbourhoods and towns.

On request, the QSE policy can be sent to you.
