Message from the CEO

Mobilized to tackle the crisis

The crisis we are experiencing has affected all the countries where the Group operates. First impacting our business in China in the second half of January, the pandemic then began escalating rapidly around the world in February as the virus passed from one region to another, prompting governments to impose safety measures to contain its spread.
During this period, our priority was to ensure business continuity while protecting the health and safety of our employees, in strict compliance with local laws and regulations. We are fortunate to be able to rely on the remarkable dedication of our teams, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them. Another of our strengths is that we are active in 35 countries, which is a major asset in the current environment.

The world has collectively come to the realization that we are fragile and that there will inevitably be sweeping changes in the way we produce and consume. This will give a boost to markets such as green transportation, renewable energies and energy efficiency, where the Group is well positioned. It is our responsibility to deliver the best technologies to all our customers working in these promising growth industries.

Luc Themelin, Chief Executive Officer
