On March 15th, the teams of the Urmet France Group, specialised in access control, intercom and video surveillance solutions, set up in an industrial area in Cholet, Atlantic France. This required an 8.4 million investment.
After 18 months of renovation work, the three entities of the Urmet France Group (FDI Matelec, Yokis and SCS Sentinel) have settled in their new premises.
In March 2021, the 140 employees moved to the new 7,400 sqm premises on 3 hectares of land. 4,000 sqm are dedicated to production and storage, while 2,800 sqm are devoted to offices. The overall renovation was possible thanks to an investment of 8.4 million.
A dedicated innovation unit
In a press release, the operational Directors of SCS Sentinel, FDI Matelec and Yokis stated that “this new location is a tremendous step forward for developing our activities. The different spaces and layouts create a pleasant working environment. Without doubt, it will provide a positive dynamic for the team”.
On another note, with all three group entities working together, research activities with a dedicated innovation unit are reinforced. It also facilitates commercial synergies while optimising the means of production by mutualising tools and services.
