Created in 2016, the Rhone company CMW, specialized in the manufacture and cutting of high-precision gears for the needs of the entire industry (aeronautics, nuclear, transport, maritime ...) announces the signing of a three-year contract with SNCF for the realization of precision gears. This new collaboration allows CMW to leverage the know-how and performance of its Corbas production unit, consisting of more than 240 machines, real-time performance measurement software and a high level of gear expertise.
CMW, on the right track with SNCF
This new contract is based on the supply of precision gears, classified category 1 and considered by the SNCF as being "parts or assemblies mounted in high demand, particularly those involving the safety of traffic and people."
Already effective, this new collaboration marks an important turning point for the company, which has been able to regain the trust of sncf: "Remy Barrere, a factory previously installed in Saint-Etienne, which we took over in 2016, had been carrying out this contract and therefore this supply for about twenty years. Following the successive bankruptcy filing of the plant in 2012 and 2015, the contract was not renewed in 2016. Since that date and the takeover by CMW, we have year after year by a small business net with the SNCF, worked to explain, demonstrate, value our performance and the know-how preserved by the companions, now installed in our factory in Lyon-Corbas. It is the work of a whole competent and dynamic team that has made this success possible,"explains Arthur Le Goff, CEO of CMW.
CMW, a know-how
Having grouped in the same premises in Corbas, the workshops Remy Barrere Gears, AEP, TEM, Sotame and Metale after their successive acquisitions, CMW has acquired a production tool of 5,000 m2 unique in its field in France: consisting of an "arsenal" of more than 240 machines, experienced companions, and productivity measurement tools 4.0 "real time", The Rhone company is able to meet the most demanding demands of the industry (aeronautics, maritime, rail, nuclear ...) for the manufacture and cutting of gears.
Guided by the search for excellence and the respect of delivery deadlines (the OTD of the company approaching 90%), the company has a hundred customers including global manufacturers such as Man, Fairbanks (United States), Safran, HHM (China) and exports more than 40% of its production outside Europe.
This new collaboration with SNCF is further good news for the company, which was also awarded a diploma of best supplier in its category in June 2021 by Safran: "The signing with SNCF is a first step. I intend to use this springboard to conquer future markets in the near future with other major contractors looking for gears manufactured with excellence,"says Arthur Le Goff.
