Inauguration of the Thiron-Gardais factory

Bertin Technologies continues its industrial development and inaugurates the extension of its factory in Thiron-Gardais on Tuesday, June the 21st, 2022.  Bruno Vallayer, President of the Bertin Technologies Group, will inaugurate the Thiron-Gardais (28) factory on Tuesday, June the 21st, 2022. This factory illustrates the dynamism of the activity of Bertin Technologies, a scientific instrumentation manufacturer for critical applications. It is here that Bertin's advanced instruments for the defence, nuclear and life sciences sectors are manufactured and maintained.

On June 21st, 2022, the estension of the Bertin Technologies factory in Thiron-Gardais, a town of 1,000 inhabitants located in the Eure et Loir region, will be inaugurated. This extension, which increases the production capacity of Bertin Technologies, illustrates the current dynamics of the Group and its markets and is part of the France 2030 Plan launched by President Emmanuel Macron, whose objective is to develop industrial sites in France.

As a result, the production area has increased by more than 2,000sqm and the number of jobs (technicians and managers) is set to increase by 50%, with more than 20 jobs created over the next five years. The story began more than 70 years ago with the creation of the BEFIC company in Thiron-Gardais by Charles Magne, which gave birth to Saphymo in 1983 before merging with Bertin Technologies in 2016. Bertin Technologies, through its Bertin Instruments division, is today one of the world leaders in radioactivity measurement.

Bertin Technologies' teams will be happy to welcome their local partners as well as their French and international customers on June 21st to celebrate technology excellence.
