On 11 May the new Eurotherm France sales office was officially inaugurated in Saint Quentin Fallavier, Lyon. In addition to having uncorked bottles, cut baguettes and celebrate, the occasion was excellent to look into each other’s eyes and give life to a new reality that looks to the future with enthusiasm.
It was 1958 when Eurotherm began to take steps in the world of customized painting systems. Much water has passed under the bridge since that small company was born, Eurotherm presents itself today for what it is: a large company capable of responding to the needs of both the Italian and European markets.
From pre-treatment to finishing: Eurotherm plants satisfy excellent results that allow the finished products to stand out on the market for the very high quality of the painting.
France and Italy: together for a vision of absolute excellence
After the opening of the representative office in Germany in 2016, it is the turn of France which, by tradition and geographical proximity, has had a privileged dialogue with Eurotherm for some time.
The French industry has always been among the first in Europe in terms of productivity, precision and technology. France is in fact the second country in Europe, after the United Kingdom, for the number of hi-tech companies (about 145,000) and in recent years it has been following an interesting industrial policy to attract foreign investment. It is therefore not surprising that Italy is the third country for investments in French industry.
In fact, if Italy is considered the leader in the mechanical industry and in the production of machine tools, France has always been the queen of the hi-tech world: two worlds which, if united, can really make a difference in imposing a qualitative vision of absolute excellence.
Among the industrial chains for which France boasts a recognized and historic tradition, the automotive, aeronautics, space, nuclear and energy industries stand out, sectors in which Eurotherm has long stood out for the construction of high precision painting.
The new Eurotherm France headquarters
The new location was chosen in a strategic area: Lyon. Near the industrial area so that it can be convenient to the main highways and airports, but also to be at the center of the production scene in order to absorb the French influences of innovation.
In fact, Lyon presents itself as one of the three largest poles of French industry, capable of attracting above all large and structured companies with investment strength and innovation capacity to present themselves as international players.
The goal of the Lyon office is to support French dealers, offering technical, commercial, and spare parts assistance directly on site, further shortening waiting times and offering immediate service to the customer. In addition to this, the headquarters will have the task of managing projects for the more complex sectors such as the aeronautical and automotive sectors, which require very high precision technical painting systems.
The headquarters is made up of a large commercial space inside which a beautiful baby blue Fiat 500 stands out as a reminder of the original one in the meeting room present in the headquarters in Volpiano, Turin. It is the symbol of the fusion between craftsmanship and design which today is enriched by the innate French technological vocation. Two offices, two countries, two personalities, but with a single goal: to bring industrial finishing to the highest levels.
Next step? The production site that will see the light in the next few months!
