Global waterproofing manufacturer Soprema recently added its products to NBS Source - to make the specification process easier for customers. We caught up with Debby Dawson, Marketing Manager at Soprema UK, to find out more about them and how they have benefitted from NBS Source so far. Here's what she said.
Founded in 1908 in Strasbourg, France, Soprema began life manufacturing and supplying bituminous waterproofing products. Fast forward 100 years and Soprema is now a global company - employing over 8,000 people with more than 90 subsidiaries, 73 production facilities and 18 Research and Development Centres around the world.
The range of waterproofing solutions includes bituminous, liquid, structural hot melt and single ply. We also supply insulation products, from EPS and XPS to acoustic and natural wood fibre. We have products which are suitable for new builds as well as retrofits and applications include low pitch roofs, barrelled and domed structures, and green roofs, to name a few. The liquid range also has applications for areas where flames are prohibited or for joints and difficult to access areas. In addition to our waterproofing solutions, we also provide a range of products for the civils market, such as roads, bridges, tunnels and much more.
At Soprema, a team of technical sales managers are on hand to provide guidance and support , ensuring the right solution is specified for a project. In addition our in-house technical team can assist with WuFi, drainage and u-value calculations as well as CAD drawings. Our field technicians provide on-site support, including condition reports and site inspections, throughout the project’s installation period and the products are supplied with an insurance-backed single-point warranty programme.
We joined NBS Source because we had to be on a digital platform that makes it easy for specifiers to access our product information. Previously, we would have provided an NBS specification that would be emailed to the recipient, but NBS Source means we can now direct a client to the correct product information and BIM model. Our waterproofing and insulation experts are then on hand to answer any technical questions that may arise from there onwards.
"Our favourite thing about NBS Source is that it’s so quick and easy for specifiers to locate the product information they’re looking for."
Working with the team at NBS has been a completely stress-free experience. They really know what they’re doing, guide you in the right direction and always have somebody available to answer your questions.
