In this video, Olivier Brett, French Fab Manager at Altyor, explains the challenges of producing a connected project in France, as well as the advantages of developing a more flexible business model.
The challenges of Made in France
Producing in France’ is becoming increasingly attractive for reasons of sovereignty and also for ecological reasons, except that it comes up against walls that are rather difficult to overcome, such as the higher cost of manufacturing and setting up a production line in France, non-existent partners for certain technologies, and an industry that is too specialised and not suited to smart devices.
The good news is that more and more manufacturers are willing to play the game, and share our desire to find solutions.
The advantages of Made In France
In the end, the important thing is not to pit the two manufacturing countries against each other, but to choose one or the other according to your needs. For example, if you want to create a reconditioning or recycling loop for your product, choosing to work with a French manufacturer will be more coherent and flexible. If you want to start by producing small or medium-sized series, a French manufacturer will be able to meet your needs. If you want to customise your product, made in France will be THE solution.
At Altyor, we adapt the industrial design solution according to your needs and with knowledge of the real environmental impacts that each choice will entail.
To conclude, a quote from Leon Trotsky: Perseverance is what makes the impossible possible, the possible probable and the probable reality.
