For customer service

Innovation is key

« For the R&D teams, the challenges associated with our growth goals involve a thorough knowledge of our customers’ needs and their machines, a quick and structured response to these needs, a range of products, systems and services that are technologically state-of-the-art, and a level of quality and reliability that is either specified or understood.

Development activities are entrusted to independent and multidisciplinary project teams. In addition, we have created teams dedicated to certain key platforms in order to better understand the trends in their markets and to specify the expected performance for these platforms worldwide.

Finally, with the help of our product line teams, we pay close attention to the consistency of our ranges - motors, pumps, valves and electronics - to provide our customers with relevant and optimized solutions.

This organization helps reduce the time to market for new products, particularly in the field of transmission systems. »
