Description

Based in France, the French group is a resource center, specialised in processing of metal and plastic pieces, mainly for luxury field. Aluminum, steels, stainless steel, brass, bronze, plastics, titanium are the materials generally used by the company which offers subcontracting and manufacturing services to other industrial partners all over the world. With different subsidiaries, (9 SME's in France and 1 in Romania), the French group can offer to its clients a global solution with complementary technologies involving the entire production chain: - Design and R & D products, tools design, prototypes and models, - Parts production metal and plastic: machining, injection, cutting, - Manufacture of special machines, - Manufacture of press tools and plastic injection molds, - Pad printing, screen printing marking, digital printing, plastic and metal painting, surface treatment and electroplating (chrome), - Parts packaging. The company offers a wide range of complete services, from the design to production logistics solutions, thanks to a single contact. A strong creativity acquired by experience allows the company to be competitive in different industrial sectors: cosmetics and luxury, sport, auto equipment manufacturer, POS (advertising point of sale), furnishings, etc. The company customizes its client's products by surface treatment and decoration complex applications, according to special requests. The company maintains compliance with sustainable development rules and is specially attentive to REACH regulations. Specialist in optical measurement, the company's expertise is particularly strong in the measurement and analysis in 3 dimensions of any type of part or all of any size, in any environment. The French group's various facilities allow digitizing parts or tools, with a high accuracy, from the smaller size to the largest one, of several tens of meters in length.

Advantages and innovations

Focus on 5 strong innovations developed by the French group: 1 - A worldwide innovation: chrome plating processes on plastic materials without using chrome 6: In this way, the company has evolved its galvanizing process by eliminating the use of chromium 6, both in the preparation and for the chromium deposit. This process, already approved or underway in several car manufacturers, is perfectly suitable on ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiène Styrène) and PC/ABS (Polycarbonate/Acrylonitrile Butadiène Styrène) devices for indoor and outdoor. The chrome plating plastic interior as exterior allows a particularly resistant metal deposit in a long time while the metallization or the paint don't product the same quality of finishing. This process is also suitable for all conventional chrome plating on plastic applications: corking, plumbing, taps. Elsewhere, to cope with these developments, the company has strengthened its facilities in France and constructed in 2015, in its factory in Romania, a new building to accommodate a chrome chain. 2 - 3D printing ABS wire: Not only chosen for the model prototyping, 3D printing also makes possible the realization of functional parts that can be used. With 3D printing wire of ABS, the clients' company can give life to their objects for everyday use. 3 - Flexible ink digital printing: The company offers color process on any flat surface, using flexible UV (ultraviolet) ink accepting deformations. The impression of white is possible, removal of a protective varnish as well. 4 - Optical control without contact, comparison by control, reverse engineering: The company's expertise in control and optical analysis, is particularly suitable for the development of new products. It simply and quickly quantifies the dimensional, geometrical problems and throughout deformation production cycles. 5 - RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system to protect all its client's products.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
