Like Solid John, Steegmans Construct is all about quality. Company director Frederic Steegmans likes to work with like-minded people. Solid John is proud to belong to that group (yay!). We had a chat about our collaboration and asked him about his views on the industry and the future.

How do we make a difference as your partner?
Solid John solutions are durable, sustainable and innovative. What I particularly appreciate is that you aim to prevent problems and you offer long-term solutions. A modus vivendi that unfortunately is still far too rare in the construction industry.
In fact, many companies focus on the short term and on short term returns, even though now we really need to use our resources and materials in a smart, durable and sustainable way. This creates logical friction in the market.
What made you decide to use our products?
Solid John solutions have been developed for very specific applications. And it shows in small but essential details. Its moisture-resistant cavity closer, for example, will not delaminate thanks to its high durability class. Each side of the sheets can be used: one side can be painted and the other is already finished with black film. This gives us peace of mind and ensures our time is well spent.
How would you describe Solid John in 3 words?
What evolution do you think will have the biggest impact on the industry in the next 3 years?
Always efficiency! The future will be all about working more efficiently, durably and sustainably. In my opinion, the construction industry in general is extremely inefficient. Far too much is wasted: working hours, materials and unnecessary work.
Companies who pay attention to this now will create an advantage and therefore gain a larger market share.
Thank you for your time and for sharing your vision with us, Frederic.
Always a pleasure.
