Industry in France
France ranks 8th among the world’s industrial powers. In fact, industry is one of France’s main sectors, accounting for 12.4% of GDP, including 10% for manufacturing.
With a turnover of 1255 billion euros, the sector counted 274,212 companies in 2021, a record year since 2009. This upturn after the Covid-19 years can be explained by a definite increase in plant start-ups and more than 32,000 new jobs, according to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Industry is made up of 19 sectors, making it rich and full of opportunities. These include aeronautics, food, fashion and luxury goods, waste processing and recovery, automotive, nuclear, mining and metallurgy…
The sector’s main social issues :
- The industry of the future
- Ecological transition
- The circular economy
- Digital technology
- Gender diversity,
- The place of women

We are also taking part in this event
As part of National Industry Week, we are delighted to welcome a class of students on a professional baccalaureate to help them find out more about our sector and our professions.
They will be joined by Cedric Thisse, Myriam Mokhtari, Sylvie Lainé and their teacher Anthony Di-Folco, formerly maintenance manager at Maviflex.
In line with our CSR commitment: equality and inclusion, it is important for us to share values that will contribute to the development of our society.
So we’re pleased to share our experience with these students and show them how our Research and Development activities are organised, right through to the production phase.
We’re proud to be part of the metallurgy industry, which is moving every day towards a more digital, ecological and humane transition. Take a look at our “Join us” page if you’d like to find out more about our industry.
