The engineering and IT service provider FERCHAU has moved into larger offices in Paris and further expanded the operational location by adding its own dedicated sales team. By doing so, the company is responding to its customers’ wish for greater diversification in the range of services available for the automotive and rolling stock sectors in France. There is particularly high demand for support in the areas of electronics and embedded systems, which are regarded as key elements in the realisation of forward-looking projects such as autonomous driving. FERCHAU is also regarded as an expert partner to customers in the rail sector. For example, the company just recently completed a project for one of the world’s leading rail technology manufacturers.
FERCHAU appeared as an exhibitor at this year’s Transrail trade show in Paris on the 8th and 9th November 2017.
As the new head of the Paris office, Nicolas Arnoult has the job of using his long-standing experience in the automotive and rail industries, to ensure that the engineering and IT service provider’s growth targets continue to be met in these areas. “We are currently planning to recruit additional technical project staff in the near future. In addition, we will also be enlarging our administrative team at the outset of 2018”, he says.
The new office is based in the Prefecture of Nanterre, right alongside La Défense, the city's industry and finance centre.
By expanding its activities in France, FERCHAU is continuing to successfully intensify its cooperative arrangements with its international clientèle. “European companies place high demands on their engineering and IT service providers. Our long-standing experience and expertise, combined with our high standards in aspects such as quality and reliability, also make us an attractive business partner for implementing even the most demanding of projects. In order to provide even better support to our customers from our French site, we are planning to specialise in other areas, and we will be opening an additional office in Nantes", says Marc Brunstein, Country Manager FERCHAU Engineering SAS, describing the expansion plans of the engineering and IT service provider in France.
Aside from its Parisian site, FERCHAU also has offices in Toulouse and Marignane, providing support to customers in areas such as aerospace, defence, automotives, IT and the rail industry.
Apart from its reputation as an expert solutions provider, the company is also a popular employer. FERCHAU offers its employees international career opportunities in exciting projects conducted for a range of customers in diverse sectors, alongside various specialised training and continuous education programmes.
