All the heat you need

As the cost of fuel has risen, the heating industry has had to improve the efficiency of its products to keep overall costs down.

Unearthing the future

The earth is constantly in motion: Continents divide and shift, earthquakes and tsunamis jostle mountain ranges and coastlines, and volcano eruptions cover villages and mighty cities with lava and ash. As the planet’s population grows, humankind picks up where nature leaves off, further altering the landscape to accommodate its ever-changing needs or to build up protection against the damaging force of the elements. In communities surrounded by various waterways, this could mean building up levees to protect against the sea like the MOSE (Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico, Experimental Electromechanical Model) project created to protect Venice, Italy, from being flooded by the Adriatic Sea, or filling in areas with sand and soil to create scenic islands and new spaces to develop housing communities and commerce. DEME N.V. understands well the need to take the lands and seas into humanity’s hands. It maintains water lanes and constructs large ports as one of the world’s preeminent dredging companies.

Local agency, extraordinary results

The end of communism brought with it countless changes.

Part of the international Publicis Group, G7 was one of the first advertising agencies to storm the Polish market.

Echolocation, location, location

In the public imagination, the exploration of underground resources calls to mind a series of violent images: the contaminating quarry, the grimy coal mine, the environmentally hazardous fracking operation.

The next logistical step

Production is just one aspect of a successful business. Buying is another. But what connects those two aspects is storage and transport. Without an established logistics network, like the one ESA s.r.o. offers its customers, no big manufacturer has a chance of success. But having such a network is only the first step. More important is constantly improving it.
