NAUE – TODAY AND TOMORROW
NAUE is an EN ISO 9001-certified company. Its comprehensive range of geosynthetic products includes Bentofix®, Carbofol®, Combigrid®, Secudrain®, Secugrid®, Secumat®, Secutex® and Terrafix®. This portfolio meets all the requirements of geosynthetic functions in civil engineering, such as filtration, separation, protection, drainage, erosion control, sealing and reinforcement. These products are used wherever superior technical, economical and ecological solutions are required for geotechnical construction projects.
The range of applications covers foundation improvement, flood defense, environmental engineering, base course reinforcement, tunnel sealing, dam construction, landfills, hazardous waste containment… all the way out to sea and to scour protection of offshore plants and other hydraulic engineering measures.
Not only has the field of geosynthetics positively impacted every major segment of civil engineering, NAUE has also developed its core competencies alongside (and at times ahead of) the profession.
Another special feature of work with NAUE, and which is a unique aspect of the company in the global geosynthetics arena, is ducts in its own facilities. This dedicated ownership of the process ensures continuously high quality and allows for an optimal combination of products. During the whole process of a construction project, whether it’s in Germany, India, the United States, or elsewhere, NAUE’s customers and partners have a fixed, capable contact person who is intimately connected to the quality controls in production and supply.
And when it comes to product dimensions, NAUE is top of the league. For example, no other manufacturer produces 9.4-m-wide, flat-extruded Carbofol® geomembranes.
The system-concept is firmly embedded in our corporate philosophy. A comprehensive product range must be complemented by a comprehensive range of services. In day-today business, it starts with consultations during the preliminary stages of a construction project, given by either a sales engineer or BBG, which is an engineering company associated with NAUE and which is specialised in geosynthetics. The BBG (Bauberatung Geokunststoffe GmbH & Co. KG) was founded in 1998 and provides its wide range of experience and knowledge to other engineering companies through seminars and workshops as well through project-oriented cooperation.
Prior to BBG’s advent, NAUE Sealing GmbH & Co. KG was founded (1993) to provide installation service expertise. NAUE Sealing carries out geosynthetic installations in tunnels and other major earth-moving projects. Many construction companies appreciate this knowledge, as high-grade barrier geosynthetics are very specific to their designed use and must be handled carefully and with great skill. NAUE Sealing provides the highest possible quality assurance for an installed geosynthetic’s performance.
