1992, the Orléans adventure begins
André Cottard set up a plastics processing business, PDCi, in Saint-Cyr-en-Val. A mechanical design office was later created, followed by an electronic design office.
2000, the Shanghai adventure begins
Yanis Cottard and Yannis Brun, friends since school, happened to cross paths. One had just spent three years in China and longed to stay there, the other had ambitions to create his own business “no matter where”. And so, their partnership began with Technochina, a start-up that specialized in subcontracting the injection molding of mechanical parts.
PDCi and Technochina formed a strong partnership. Their complementarity won over several large customers.
2012, creation of the group
Altyor was born from the merger of PDCi and Technochina in 2012.
