Who we are?
Based on the widest range of wear-resistant materials on the market, Produr, member of Welding Alloys Group, is specialized in wear-resistant parts manufacturing and development of wear-resistant solutions, suitable to any field of activity involved in bulk materials handling.
1974 – Savoy Decoup
Produr, originally called Savoy Decoup (SD) was the first partner in France for distribution of Q&T steels Hardox from the Swedish steelmaker SSAB in France in the 1980s.
In the same time, SD expanded its offer beyond plates distribution by investing in industrial equipment in order to process quenched & tempered steels (cutting, bending, machining) and to offer parts.
1990 – Produr
SD creates a “Produr” department, with the aim of offering wear-resistant solutions to the customers and, in particular, expanding their range by integrating new wear-resistant materials (ceramics, Clad plates, polymers).
Then, as Savoy Decoup saw its core business change, offering a solution and reliability became the company’s credo and SD definitively evolved into Produr! (Produr means in french “Protéger pour Durer”.
This is when Produr and SSAB parted ways. Based on its knowledge of quality and processing of Q&T steels, Produr launched its own product range : DURSTEEL
2012 – Welding Alloys
Produr joins Welding Alloys Group, leader in development & manufacturing of cored welding wires and clad plates.
This integration strengthens Produr’s capabilities in terms of vertical integration and economical performance, but also in terms of technological resources, since WA France has a metallurgy laboratory and R&D teams.
2020 – Industeel
On 1st March 2020, Produr becomes the official distributor for France of Creusabro wear resistant steels, produced by Industeel, subsidiary of ArcelorMittal group. Specialising in advanced steels, Industeel produces hot-rolled sheet, ingots and shaped parts in special steels.
Produr now markets Creusabro 4800, 8000 and Dual. An exclusive and patented range of advanced steels resistant to wear and impact abrasion.
