These major projects will greatly contribute to the sustainability of our company” said Maxime DUPONCHEL, Vice-President of Portalp and pilot of these achievements. “They are the driving force behind three major strategic investments:
- As of 2020, the transformation of our industrial facilities in Grenoble, through both the construction of a new production site and the conversion of the historic factory into a centre of excellence, dedicated to R&D, training and call center;
- The launch of an ambitious recruitment plan, targeting in particular highly skilled engineers in systems, quality, method, software, hardware and mechanics (mechanical);
- The strengthening of our international strategic presence, in order to deal with major ongoing and future projects, in the field of automation in general and public transport in particular.”
