Next year, the Aereco Group will be 30 years old. From a 15 people operation in France in 1984, it has turned into an international group with more than 250 people in 8 countries and a turnover above £45 million.
Over this period, the company has been able to grow its manufacturing premises by purchasing surronding buildings. This approach has now reached its limits and it has been decided to move the whole French division to a new site nearby.
On Tuesday June 25th, the first stone of the new building has been laid down in presence of the Board of Aereco together with the Mayor of the city of Collegien, where Aereco is located, and the architect of the project.
On the picture, left to right, Michel Chartier, Mayor of Collegien, Marc Jardiner, CEO of Aereco, Stephane Salini, Director of Salini Groupe Architects, Serge Petillon, Technical Director of Aereco and Laurent Jardinier, Commercial Director of Aereco.
The new building will cover 18,000m², of which 2,800m² for offices and more than 10,000m² for production. The company will move in the first quarter of 2014. Below is a view of the new premises.
