As an SME invested in boosting the La Rochelle area economy, we take pride in creating long lasting local partnerships. We regularly take on apprentices from the Surgères ENILIA secondary school (http://enilia-ensmic.fr/) and source most of our main raw materials within a radius that is as small as possible (western France). Our commitment in the local community also takes place within an array of cultural and sporting events such as the La Rochelle Marathon and the La Rochelle Autumn Rally (car race).
