Visit of Alternor with M. François Bonneau, President of the Regional Council of the Centre Region, and M. Marc Gricourt, Mayor of Blois

François Bonneau came in Blois Tuesday afternoon on the theme of regional support to the local economy. The President of the Centre Region visited Alternor, a company that specializes in plasma surface treatment techniques for the industry.

François Bonneau came in Loir-et-Cher to promote the large collection of support schemes that the Regional Council set in place for the economy and for innovative firms. The President justifies: "We are the 6th industrial region of France, with an important network of SMEs that need to be accompanied on technology so they can design tomorrow's products". Hence his visit at Alternor Tuesday afternoon.

Created in 2011 by three young engineers, this engineering firm provides technological expertise and guidance on system design to SMEs.

[...] The technology's performance on both economic and environmental levels is very high, as it reduces the need for expensive chemical inputs that must be reprocessed.

[...] Our activity not only consists in designing solutions, but also in providing support from A to Z throughout all steps necessary for implementing plasma technology.

[...] While the technology has been largely in use in large companies, it remains relatively unknown to smaller companies.
