Other partner companies are responsible for transporting the bottles from one production site to another and from the region to other destinations such the Eure and the Loire where the filling is done.
Others design and develop the hardware necessary to the construction of furnaces, the manufacturing of glass, its decoration and its packaging…
Others, still, have a role of study and engineering consultants. Protecting the environment has become one of the major stakes of a lasting development for these companies during the past few years. Reconciling the region’s competitive industrial base with the safeguarding of its natural heritage is, indeed, a unanimously recognized need. Optimizing the management of environmental resources while simultaneously closely observing enacted regulations has become a significant factor of development and competitiveness.
