Elvia PCB group was created at the Coutances facility, then a subsidiary of the ALCATEL group.
Elvia PCB Group
Over 40 years of history
These 2 companies merged on the Chateaubourg site. The new entity was named A&P-LITHOS. Elvia PCB: after having been certified ISO 9001 and then ISO 14001, the company continued to distinguish itself by acquiring new certifications: EN9100 for Aerospace and Defence and AQAP 2120 (high quality management tool to meet specific requirements of ISO 9001 and the defence industry). The new group, which was in the process of consolidating its activities, continued its dynamic growth by acquiring Sagem's (SAFRAN Group) PCB activities and creating the eLci subsidiary. Under the initiative of its President, Bruno CASSIN, Elvia PCB Group rapidly positioned itself as the French leader in the PCB market and took its place in the European top 10 in the Air and Defence sectors, however the eLci facility was closed when a fire forced the company to change its strategy.
Elvia PCB developed an industrial rationalisation program and became the third company in the world to obtain PRI-NADCAP accreditation (aeronautics certification). The following year, the former subsidiary eLci converted to the solar industry and became SILLIA Energie. eLci employees were transferred to the new company and all jobs were preserved.
