In April 2011, as part of its strategic refocusing policy, the Group Areva had announced plans to sell the company 01dB-Metravib. The deal was completed on December 14 with the sale of the company to 5 of its senior managers, with the backing of Lyon-based private equity group Evolemwhose expertise in supporting SMEs is widely recognized.
01dB-Metravib now has a new name, Acoem and a new identity combined with a new-found corporate strategy. The company is in line with its history and development over the past 40 years.

All the new entity's expertise is now focused on intelligent monitoring and acoustic/vibration expertise. "said its new president Fabien Condemine. " The strength of the project we have presented lies in the fact that Evolem is making a long-term commitment alongside its managers, with strong shared ambitionsemphasizes Franck Urbanski, Associate Director at Evolem.
