By Uncategorized No Comments

A project that matches France Relance values and objectives.

The Covid19 Crisis underlined the necessity to turn a corner after decades of de-industrialisation. In the Electronics sector, many French and European actors who buy PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) in Asia have been in difficult situation. Relocate has become a priority for the Government. To succeed, the France Relance program, through its financial solutions, offers a real asset. Our company took that opportunity and play its part as a leader in PCB’s manufacturing.

Because of the uncertainty brought by the crisis, our investment projects were reconsidered. But thanks to the Government Recovery Plan « Résilience » dedicated to strategic sectors such as electronics, we were able to bounce back.

In this context, our PEREN project, « Projet Elvia de REsilience par le Numérique », that allows us to initiate the next step of our development in terms of 4.0 indutrialisation, meets the French Government expectations to strengthen national PCB manufacturing capacity.

Group Convergence, Digital Modernisation, Industrial Mastery and Operational Excellence are what PEREN is about.

To achieve the objectives, PEREN’s benefits are plural :

  •  The development and acquisition of software tools for all our upstream services in order to gain in rapidity and efficiency all along the production process, from the very first analysis to manufacturing.

  • The acquisition and installation of new digital solutions of 4.0 industry approach in order to generate, collect and analyse data on our production processes, under the continual improvement principle.

“Our goal is to make our industrial process more robust and improve our productivity and competitiveness, that will allow us to bounce back as fast as possible and recover growth”, Maxime Le Canu, Group Industrialisation Manager.

Currently, this recovery plan affects our D.A.S. (Defence – Aero – Space) division’s activity, that is to say very complex PCBs, specialty of elvia PCB Group. 3 of our production facilities are involved : our headquarter and reference in HDI technologies – elvia Normandy, our Flex and Microwave technologies specialist – elvia Brittany and our Space and Microwave expert – elvia Loire Valley.
