Your partner for your building

Often costs of building projects go adrift – prices are too high and innovative solutions often turn out to be out of touch with reality. Then it is high time to call in an expert who has a strong grip on the entire building project and a close eye on all costs involved. Gleeds France, part of the global Gleeds group, has emerged as the leading independent property and cost management consultant. At its Paris headquarters, the company can fall back on an international team that knows the exact requirements of its customers in construction, property and related sectors.

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.


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.
