Dominique Denoël, VMI’s Chief Executive Officer, and Didier Soumet, LINXIS Group’s Chairman, officially opened on Friday 8th June, with their teams, VMI’s new industrial site, located in Saint-Hilaire-de-Loulay, 30 km south of Nantes (France).
A GUIDED TOUR TO DISCOVER VMI ACTIVITIES
Visitors discovered the 3,000-square-metre offices and the 10,000-square-metre factory through a journey where presentations made by company personnel highlighted the jobs and the organization of VMI, a specialist in mixing equipment and solutions. During the one-hour tour, everyone was able to see a new luminous workplace, adapted to the company’s flow management and offering an ideal setting to achieve the objective of industrial efficiency that VMI and LINXIS Group have set themselves.
Customer support, project management and planning, ongoing equipment manufacturing, the R&D and trail centre: it is through these themes that the VMI teams endeavoured to throw open VMI’s doors and emphasize with pride the expertise and the know-how of the company on its markets – bakery/snacking, pharmacy-cosmetics, and specialty chemicals.
KEY MOMENTS SUFFUSED WITH CONVIVIALITY
Back-to-back tours gathered close to 400 people who were also entertained at the Ypresis space in Saint-Hilaire-de-Loulay, 2 km away from the VMI site. Dominique Denoël and Didier Soumet had invited Antoine Chéreau, 1st Vice-President of the Pays de la Loire region and Leader of the Communauté de Communes Terre de Montaigu, and Didier Vallat, an elected member of the Vendée CCI and Managing Director of Kuhn Andureau, another Vendée company, for a speech, alongside VMI’s partners. The audience heard optimistic messages that proudly fly the colours of Vendée, a land of entrepreneurship and economic dynamism.
