GHM’s skills are acknowledged to be unique. It has been using these skills to make urban equipment via all forms of metal transformation (casting, sheet-metalwork, machining, finishing, etc.) since 1840.
Every day 800 employees produce equipment in four European factories. These are used by people in cities across the world: hundreds of references attest to this.
Designers, architects, town planners and community decision makers, recognising the distinctiveness of GHM and Eclatec, its subsidiary, make use of their skills on a daily basis.
A wide range of existing solutions:
Collaboration with major designers has allowed the range to multiply in terms of products and styles.
When the project lends itself to it, the designer and constructor can be even more creative through sharing, because of the broad range we deal with, and this creativity also comes from the ability to make unique choices in terms of materials, technology and finishes.
If necessary, laboratories and test benches complement the strategies that come from simulation, integration and calculation software.
French and foreign cities, towns and villages of all sizes have been installing GHM equipment for a long time.
Among the most famous in France include the lighting on the Champs-Elysées, the Guimard metro entrances and Wallace fountains. Outside Paris there’s the lighting on the Canebière in Marseille, the tram infrastructure in Lyon (electricity masts, lighting, street furniture), and equipment in Orléans and Dijon.
Exports have been very successful: the cities of Rome (100,000 lights), Brussels, Amsterdam and Stockholm, and further afield Rabat, Baku, Kuala Lumpur and Canberra rely on the two firms' products.
Spirit and philosophy.
GHM's enthusiasm and creativity are endless, creating a friendly and safe city for its users, being at the forefront of emerging urban practices, aiming for street furniture to fit coherently into urban landscapes, respecing the environment, seeking top performance and focusing on duration and quality.
Areas of expertise:
GHM and ECLATEC focus first and foremost on equipment for city centres and traffic arteries:
tram wire masts
- tree grates
- statues and special constructions
Lighting masts, lamp posts and light fittings
GHM manufactures a wide range of lamp posts from cast iron, steel or aluminium, in all styles and for all uses: contemporary or classic solutions, decorative or functional applications, and very tall lighting are just some of the range of choices.
The design of the products is tested with resistance simulations and obviously meets the relevant standards.
There is a wide range of light fixtures in GHM's range.
For more than 100 years GHM has been designing and selling benches, bollards and posts, barriers, litter bins, planters and fountains in contemporary or traditional styles.
The quality of this equipment and its careful design guarantee that everyone in town will appreciate their features for many years.
Range of products
GHM's metallurgical and mechanical know-how combined with the group's mastery of light have led to the creation of coherent ranges of street lights and furniture. They have a strong aesthetic identity and convey an orderly and thought-out message.
Tram power masts
GHM sells remarkable cast-iron masts for supporting power lines. The use of cast iron offers incomparable freedom of design, elegant integration of accessories, reduction in the diameter of the masts and unbeatable strength.
Beyond its current products, GHM is attentive to any development of an architectural and urban character, making full use of its design and manufacturing capabilities.
