Means of production

Human resources

Our study and production capacities: 150 to 200 new heat exchangers, replacement bundles and/or pressure vessels per year.

Our permanent staff consists of about 100 employees, experienced and specialised in the design and manufacturing of our equipment.

Our study and design, production, quality control and support services teams are all grouped together on our one and only site in Le Havre.

In the same way, our company integrates internally most of the skills and human and material means necessary for the process of realisation of the equipment it supplies (design, study, machining, assembly, welding, controls and tests, etc.).
This advanced integration, together with its capabilities and expertise, ensures our clients a high degree of flexibility and the best reactivity necessary to carry out “customised” and “fast-track” projects.
