Jean-Camille Uring has just been elected president of the Symop , Union of production technology companies, which represents 240 companies with 16,000 people and a turnover of 2 billion euros. He succeeds Alain Huet, president since 2007, who had previously worked to ensure that the measure finds its full consideration within the Union. Measurement is one of Symop's 13 working groups and brings together around fifty companies in the world of mechanical measurements (measurement and dimensional control in particular).
Jean-Camille Uring was elected for a two-year term (in accordance with the statutes of the union). A graduate of the Ecole Centrale de Paris, he is now Deputy CEO of Fives Cinetic and member of the Executive Committee of the Fives group, which designs and manufactures process equipment, production lines and turnkey factories for largest industrial players in the aluminum, steel, automotive and logistics, cement, energy and sugar sectors.
His current position is due to a steady progression within the Fives group, where he began his career as an Engineer at Heurtey-Métallurgie (today Fives Stein). In 1984, he took over the management of Fives Celes, another subsidiary of the group, specializing in induction heating and industrial cooling technologies. In 1998, he was responsible at Fives Cinetic for the development of the Automated production systems activity (machining, assembly, automation, handling).
Jean-Camille Uring will continue the work of bringing together production technology companies dear to his predecessor in order to be able to act better and more collectively. This is an essential objective for the mission he has set for himself: to raise awareness on the part of political and economic actors of the strategic importance of modernizing and optimizing the production tool in the competitiveness of businesses and therefore of French industry.
