French aeronautical industry set for new heights as global demand skyrockets

Marine Juillard - 19-déc.-2014 10:51:40
The usual suspects can explain this rise in demand – change in demographics in developing economies and tastes and preferences of their emerging middle classes. Who will benefit from this near certain doubling of the market? Certainly one of the strongest cases comes from Airbus and the rest of the 3,000 French companies working in the aerospace industry. The European aviation industry (the production, maintenance and support of civil aircraft) is currently the second largest in the world, behind the Boeing-led sector in the United States. It is undeniably integral to France in producing jobs and growth, as it is the largest foreign looking sector with €22 billion in net exports. Many SMEs depend on and service Airbus and these companies will directly benefit from the impending expansion of the giant’s aircraft deliveries. For example, the A320 will increase from its current 42 to the target of 50 planes per month. Aside from Airbus’s presence, there are many smaller companies that have succeeded independently and are capturing attention abroad. For example, Mapaero produces paint for airplane interiors and exteriors, such as aircraft wheels. The company is particularly innovative as its products are in line with recent EU regulations restricting chemicals in paint. It has acquired several new airlines as clients and its attempts to limit environmental impact will also no doubt lead to a bright future. The French aviation industry is already mature, well diversified, and a world leader but what are its prospects for the future? It seems difficult to imagine that things could get much better, but it certainly looks as if they might. Brice Robin, project manager at UBIFRANCE for the aeronautical sector, explains that the industry is not lingering on its current success: “It is true that over the last 100 years France has had a strong history within aviation. This, however, is never enough and we need to look to innovation for the future. For example, French companies spend an average of 14% of their revenues on R&D.” Innovation is incredibly important for France to extend its advantage in a market that requires the utmost quality to ensure the security and longevity of very expensive products for prospective clients. Mr. Robin adds that there is an industry pressure for firms to “deliver faster, perfect parts with a high level of quality, as well as better products with new technology, such as reduced weight.” There are competitors arising in developing markets such as Brazil, China and Russia. However, it is likely that they will have difficulty in competing with France’s knowhow and complete package of services.  Mr. Robin explains, for example, that the French maintenance market provides a one-stop shop for clients, reducing costs and offering convenience. He says, “Today buyers don’t only look at the cost of aircraft, but also the maintenance and everything else surrounding the aircraft since they will look to keep the aircraft for 25 to 35 years. They will also look to renovate the aircraft interior every 5 to 10 years.” An airline doing business in France will not only purchase from Airbus but also look to other French companies, some located nearby in the Toulouse metropolitan area, that provide maintenance and other support such as refurbishment.  Mr. Robin puts this emerging competition for the French industry into perspective and explains, “Clients cannot supply all of their parts and components from a new player in an emerging market because some technologies, materials, designs, and new processes are not yet available, something which gives the French an advantage.” For example, the maintenance of certain structural parts that are produced by Airbus requires special certification that can only be found amongst French engineers. UBIFRANCE helps French companies find clients and partners abroad. For example, the company Win MS participated at trade shows in Dubai with UBIFRANCE and was able to attain contacts with local airlines. Qatar Air, the world’s second most-preferred airline according to the World Airline Awards, was very impressed by its aeronautical-maintenance equipment.  Another company to benefit from working with UBIFRANCE is Aeroform, which provides repairing equipment for composite materials, much of which can be found in the structure of modern aircrafts. The company was looking for a distributor in Spain and Germany, and with help of Ubifrance was able to attain a list of seven to ten possible suitors in each of the markets. Within three months Aeroform had signed contracts with distributors in each country and is now working with UBIFRANCE to achieve the same results on the Russian market.

French mechanical engineering sector builds itself into a global leader

Marine Juillard - 21-oct.-2014 15:57:19
Véronique Cuziol, project manager at UBIFRANCE, believes that the French mechanical engineering sector showcases the best of French manufacturing. She says: “Not all French industries are in decline. Some sectors, such as the mechanical engineering industry, are successful.” So, what exactly is this stellar industry all about? Mechanical engineering firms are diverse in terms of products and services but, broadly, they service and produce valued-added products for the automobile, aerospace and railway industries. The French mechanical engineering industry has an annual turnover of €113 billion, of which €45.6 billion is exported. These figures rank France sixth worldwide and third within Europe. Overall there are over 50,000 companies in the industry, including a few large players (Air Liquide, Alstom, Areva, and Fives) and a healthy majority of smaller companies: 95% of all firms are SMEs and start-ups.   Besides the USA and China, European markets are the traditional destinations for French exports in this sector. Germany remains by far the biggest importer. Therefore, it is not surprising that a large number of French mechanical engineering companies can be found at the world’s biggest industrial fair in Germany, the Hannover Messe.   French companies, and in particular SMEs, have been exceptionally effective in leveraging the country’s research clusters – some of the best in the world – into innovative solutions. A great example is the Mont Blanc Industries cluster, which specializes in precision machining, mechatronics and other advanced industrial techniques. There is a collective, national interest in creating what is being called the ‘Factory of the Future’; disruptive investments in technologies such as energy efficiency, 3D printing, and advanced robotics that will redefine the future of manufacturing through increased efficiency and reduction in costs.   Some of these French start-ups are making a big splash with innovative products. For example, the company French Expliseat, founded in 2011, produces the ‘Titanium Seat,’ the world’s lightest seat that also offers an innovative and ergonomic design. Expliseat has recently received certification from the Federal American Aviation Administration (FAA) and is therefore able to supply the US aircraft industry.   Another example of a successful subsector is textile machinery manufacturing. French firms offer extremely targeted and innovative products as well as excellent customer service and a highly skilled workforce.   The top 100 French subcontracting companies include a number of large businesses such as the LISI Group, which has a turnover of over €1 billion. There are also a myriad of smaller, but nevertheless very ambitious, companies such as Manoir Industries which specialises in metal forging and found. Its objective is to become a world leader in the production of metals for the construction, nuclear, oil and gas, and petro-chemistry sectors.   It must not be overlooked that France is one of the most attractive countries in Europe in terms of foreign investments, ranking fourth in the world in terms of industrial FDI. This is no surprise give that foreign investors have access to the second biggest economy in Europe, third highest hourly labour productivity, excellent infrastructure, and a central geographic position. Furthermore, France ranks second in Europe for the number of patent applications, with one in ten of these patents being the result of collaboration between French and foreign companies.   UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency , has 80 offices around the world. Its role is to help French companies in marketing their products abroad, as well assist foreign companies in finding French suppliers or partners.   More information about French companies, please go to: French exporters directory of mechanical engineering

Immersion to unveil Meetiiim solution at CeBIT 2014

Aurore Bernard - 04-mars-2014 11:21:43
Immersion, a market leader in Europe and a major international player in the field of innovative, immersive and collaborative 3D technologies for industry and research, has unveiled Meetiiim, an advanced multi-touch and interactive conference table. The company will be presenting Meetiiim at CeBIT, the world’s leading IT trade show, which will be held in Hannover (Germany) from 10 to 14 March 2014.   Christophe Chartier, CEO of Immersion, says: “Meetiiim takes interactive collaboration one step further. We are sure that this genuine technological masterpiece will revolutionize the codes and practices of business meetings and improve decision-making processes. Our aim is to build on the widely accepted technological developments that have now become commonplace, such as touch technology, in order to promote interactivity, optimize communication, and identify and capitalize on important information.”   Meetiiim is the product of five years of industrial collaboration and research and epitomizes Immersion’s expertise, innovation and know-how. The company will be presenting its cutting-edge technological tool at the CeBIT trade show (Hall 6, Stand L.15), which will take place in Hannover (Northern Germany) from 10 to 14 March of this year.   With Meetiiim, Immersion explores the difficulties generated by passive meetings – where one or more individuals speak to a listening audience – which are quite often unproductive. Immersion’s concept is suited to the industrial sector (aerospace, automotive, etc.) as well as to other areas of activity, such as construction and public works, architectural or design firms, training centres, etc.   Christophe Chartier, CEO, adds: “This collaborative technology not only helps to develop interactivity during meetings, it also improves group decision-making and, therefore, reduces the product-design time.”   Meetiiim’s elegant design and interface help to enhance projects through dynamic presentations. At each stage of a project, multi-disciplinary teams gather around the Meetiiim table in order to accelerate developments, reduce errors, and improve strategic decision-making.   Once the user is connected to Meetiiim via Wi-Fi, the range of possibilities is virtually endless, with the added advantage of saving considerable time.   Access to the Cloud is one of the many features of the solution developed by Immersion: this enables the user to share inter-disciplinary data in real time (3D models, videos, PDF files, images, screen shots, etc.) by simply dragging and dropping. The user can also control remotely various connected devices, as well as send memos directly to Meetiiim, and even use the clipboard tool in order to capture work in progress on Meetiiim.   In addition, the CLONE feature allows the person leading the meeting to generate a copy of his (or her) document and to send it to each attendee. In this way, all participants are able to see any alterations made to the document and visualize its processing, thanks to the annotations and Post-it tools integrated into Meetiiim’s features. Accordingly, participants can follow updates to the project at a glance.   Once the consultation-and-revision stage is over, Meetiiim’s handler feature can be used to keep track of the project. It is then possible to recover the data at the end of the meeting thanks to the automatic backup, which means that the participants do not have to wait to receive the final report.   About Immersion   Immersion, which is headquartered in Bordeaux (South-Western France), is a European leader in the field of innovative, immersive and collaborative 3D technologies for industry and research. The company was founded in 1994 by CEO Christophe Chartier and also has offices in Paris and in Nantes (Western France). Immersion will be showcasing its new Meetiiim solution at CeBIT, the world’s leading IT trade show, which will be held in Hannover (Germany) from 10 to 14 March 2014. The company will be in Hall 6, on Stand L.15.   For further information about the trade show, please go to: www.cebit.com   For further information about Meetiiim, please go to: www.meetiiim.com   For further information about Immersion, please go to: www.immersion.fr    For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3921   Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer   UBIFRANCE Press Office in London   Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640   kate.riley@ubifrance.fr    View other press releases at :   http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/
