Business in France


Loyal customers and boosted sales

The packaging has a huge influence on the sales of a product. In particular, luxury products need to have appropriate packaging that not only protects its content, but also attracts the attention of the consumer. Promotional objects can increase brand loyalty and boost sales. Manifesto Factory, based in Paris, is a preferred partner for luxury brands in the promotional objects and packaging sector, offering a broad range of high-quality packaging solutions and customized promotional objects such as bags, purses and accessories for the luxury market.


From flexible workspaces to stunning cityscapes

When designing a new office building, the focus in the past was usually on its external appearance. Often the goal was to create a prestigious landmark building that would reflect the status of the company that commissioned it and the talent of the architect who designed it. Internal aspects were often a secondary consideration. Whilst external design is still important, there is an increasing demand for flexible workspaces with integrated technology. French architectural practice Groupe Kardham offers a fully integrated service encompassing the whole project from planning application and construction through to interior planning and workspace organization.


Space race through a telescope

Since the first tentative missions in the 1960s, scientists have been continuously pushing the boundaries of space exploration to maximize the opportunities and possibilities it offers. These advances have only been possible because of suppliers to the space and scientific world, who have kept pace with the developments and supply the essential, innovative components required to implement the latest projects – companies such as THALES SESO SAS. The French firm, based in Aix-en-Provence, has over 50 years’ experience in the high-end optics used in the space sector as well as a number of other high-tech industries.


Paying more than lip service to big data

Today, the terms big data and artificial intelligence are on everyone’s lips, however, the proportion of companies that truly use the insights and advantages big data can confer to inform their strategic planning is still relatively small. Most pay mere lip service to the trend by buying the relevant software and equipment but then failing to interpret and analyze the resulting data correctly. Founded in Paris in 2006 by four university friends, Ekimetrics was set up with the aim of bringing big data to the front office. The intention was to gather information that could be used as the basis for effective market strategies.


Harnessing the hydrogen in biomass

There is no denying that alternative energies are the key to our future, but harnessing their power proves difficult at times. Haffner Energy, based in Vitry-Le-François, is the kind of innovative company that will master the challenge and pave the way into that future. The energy expert engineers and produces plants that create hydrogen from biomass.


A taste of the Provençal sun

When Alain Combard came across Domaine Saint André de Figuière in Provence in 1992, he loved it so much that he bought it. Today, his children Magali, Delphine and François are carrying on the family wine-making tradition to produce sustainable wines full of the character of the region’s unique terrain.


Strength in numbers ensure patients come first

For most of Europe, the right to competent healthcare is a given, and doctors and other committed healthcare employees work tirelessly to meet the needs of their patients. Nevertheless, the reality is that money plays a key role, and for many organizations within the medical sector, cost is the overriding factor. Not so for SELAS BPR Analyses Spécialisées (BPR), a group of laboratories covering almost the whole of France, which places patients as human beings at the core of its services, and promises the best possible care, with decision-making processes that are independent of any financial concerns.


Strategy versus reality: bridging the gap

Develop a strategy and implement it: Sounds simple, but many companies struggle to bridge the gap between a well-devised strategy and the reality of executing it effectively in order to reap the benefits. French consultant Meotec SAS specializes in supporting businesses with the tactical and operational aspects of project management and the implementation of a new strategy. Meotec leverages its expertise to help its clients with the practical steps necessary to transform their business and improve performance.


Connect faster, further, everywhere

Long gone are the days when only public radio and television services were available. While terrestrial broadcasting is still one of TDF’s core competences, the French operator of neutral and open infrastructures has restructured and diversified its portfolio in order to tackle the challenges of modern telecommunications, both now and in the future. When it comes to television and radio broadcasting services, co-towering and the laying of fibre-optic cables, TDF has established a unique mix of products and services that have catapulted the French company to the top in its designated markets.


Enticing epitomes of delicacies

It is a matter of fact that packaging is fundamental to a product’s success. Packaging boxes have multiple functions: They protect their contents, inform consumers, convey key brand values and messages, and ideally stand out in a shelf. Studies have shown that shoppers respond most positively to packaging design that looks particularly attractive and alluring. There are many reasons though why more and more French chocolatiers and patisseries are reling on Thibault Bergeron SAS in Muzillac in Brittany. The company develops and produces packaging solutions that are veritable and irresistible pieces of art.
