Olivier Becht presented the 13 measures of the Oser l'Export plan to a large number of elected representatives and business leaders, accompanied by three Yvelines MPs (Charles Rodwell, Marie Lebec and Béatrice Piron), and Olivier Vincent, BPI France Deputy Managing Director for Export. These measures fall into three main categories:
- invest in people and regions by recruiting, training and developing the export reflex within French companies throughout France,
- promote French know-how in as many markets as possible, and let them collectively benefit from the France banner,
- focus on the sectors of tomorrow and growth regions, and support the reindustrialization of France.
The Emitech Group, a major player in Europe in the field of testing
With 600 employees and expected sales of 70 million euros in 2023, the Emitech group, founded in 1989, has become a leading engineering and testing company, with 15 % of its sales generated on the export market.
In cutting-edge areas such as decarbonizing transport, the investments required are substantial. To provide manufacturers with a complete offer, these investments exceed the capacity of the French market to make them profitable. As a result, their long-term viability depends on development in export markets.
Substantial investment in green energies
These strategic investments include the Group's hydrogen facilities, its new very large Faraday cage for EMC vehicle homologation and qualification of large systems for the aerospace and defense industries, as well as dedicated resources for battery testing and engineering.
The Emitech group also offers its customers support in marketing their products in Europe and worldwide. Faced with regulatory requirements that may differ from those applicable in Europe, the Emitech group helps its customers optimize their costs and lead times to conquer their own export markets.
