The Rubber and Polymers industry in the Val d'Oise

media48792

media48786
Aware of the strategic interest of the Rubber and Polymers industry, the Val d'Oise is home to many stakeholders in this sector. The reputation and synergies established by these national champions, multinationals and dynamic SMEs are encouraging other companies working in the industry to locate in the département.

RUBBER AND POLYMER PROCESSING
carre France is the second-largest producer of tyres and rubber technical parts in Europe after Germany and ahead of Spain and Italy. The Val d'Oise is particularly involved in the progress of this industry. The work of major prime contractors and subcontractor SMEs located in the département covers several areas of the Rubber and Polymers industry such as processing, which includes tyres and industrial rubber, as well as finished products for companies (pipes, gaskets, belts, etc.) and individual consumers (gloves, boots, teats, etc.). This environment extends to suppliers, producers of raw materials, manufacturers of moulds and companies positioned on the waste recycling market.

Well-known companies located in the Val d'Oise include Hutchinson in Persan, Le Joint Français (a subsidiary of the Hutchinson group) in Bezons and 3M France in Cergy. The presence in the département of Axson, Electra Unic Industrie, Lisi Automotive Rapid, Cooper Standard Automotive France, Griffine is also noteworthy. All of these companies located in the Val d'Oise are involved in marketing and production activities, as well as R&D and the manufacture of innovative products.
The University of Cergy Pontoise is also part of this dynamic, offering a large number of courses relating to the industry, as are engineering schools such as the EBI(Higher Institute of Industrial Biology). They also act as genuine partners for the companies working in this sector in the Val d'Oise, focusing on targeting new markets and developing new products.

«Our customers have transferred their technological development to us. They submit their problem to us and we find the solution. That's how our business works today».
François Souchet, Managing Director of the Hutchinson "Sealants, adhesives and profiles" Division.


media48810

carre (continued from page 1)
This R&D is strengthened by the presence of the Elastopôle competitiveness cluster, which extends throughout the entire Val d'Oise département and whose aim is to create momentum for the industry by setting up

a platform for sharing knowledge and resources.
On the strength of this economic focus, the CEEVO (Val d'Oise Economic Development Board) has conducted a study aimed at assessing the current situation and

development prospects for the Rubber and Polymers industry in the département in order to provide with the best possible support and structure.

media48822

media48804

The Val d'Oise Economic Development Board (CEEVO) ensures the promotion of a number of industries of strategic excellence for the Val d'Oise.
It provides assistance for networks of effective companies involved in these sectors of business, most of which form part of the competitiveness cluster dynamic

ANNUAL MEETING OF RESEARCHERS AND BUSINESSES
carre 
As part of the efforts to bring together higher education establishments and SMEs in the département, undertaken by the CESE 95, (Val d'Oise Higher Education and Business Forum), each year the CEEVO is heavily involved in the Val d'Oise Research and Innovation Week. This week includes a large number of events in the Val d'Oise over five days in April and May: lectures, factory, company and research laboratory visits, business meetings and so on. This event is free of charge and open to all, providing an opportunity to get to know certain companies and laboratories in the area, such as those working in the rubber and polymers industry, as well as certain projects from the 9 competitiveness clusters in which the Val d'Oise is involved, such as the Elastopôle cluster.

Research laboratories working in Rubber and Polymers in the Val d'Oise
The University of Cergy- Pontoise has 4 Rubber and Polymers laboratories in the Val d'Oise:

- LPPI (Physical chemistry of Polymers and Interfaces Laboratory), which specialises in developing materials from conducting polymers and insulators.
- LPMS (Materials and Surface Physics Laboratory).
- ERRMECe (Extra- Cellular/Cellular Matrix Relationships Research Laboratory).
- SOSCO (Selective Organic Synthesis and Organometallic Chemistry laboratory). This research unit, set up by the University of Cergy- Pontoise, the ESCOM and the CNRS, has three teams of researchers specialising in applied organometallic chemistry for organic synthesis.

ELASTOPOLE and DEFI PME CAOUTCHOUC 
Challenge for SMEs in the rubber industry
Since January 2009, the professional organisations in the rubber industry have decided to step up their efforts in response to the call for projects entitled «Human capital - gaining skills for increased competitiveness» launched by the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment.
The project is being conducted by Elastopôle, in partnership with UCAPLAST (Joint professional union of Rubber and plastics SMEs) and the SNCP (National Rubber and Polymers Union).
Its purpose is to assist SMEs nationwide, more especially those in the Val d'Oise, in order to anticipate changes to their business, invest in human capital, help them with their situation as regards retirements and recruitment and thus develop their competitiveness using employment and skills diagnoses.

 The Val d'Oise is home to nine competitiveness clusters including Elastopôle, recognised on July 5, 2007 by the Interminsterial Board of Regional Planning and Competitiveness. Elastopôle brings together companies, laboratories and training bodies in the Rubber and Polymers industry in the Val d'Oise. Its aim is to encourage business and employment by creating momentum for technological innovation and stimulating positive synergies between industry stakeholders.

 

THE ELASTOPOLE COMPETITIVENESS CLUSTER

media48834Elastopôle already has 70 members, including world-leading multinationals working in the field of tyres and industrial rubber, a network of SMEs with recognised industrial knowledge and public and private-sector laboratories (over 3,500 researchers) located in the Val d'Oise as well as in the Centre, Auvergne, Pays de Loire and Île-de-France regions. This competitiveness cluster relies on a large number of stakeholders in the Paris region, including the French Rubber and Polymers Centre which brings together the National Rubber and Polymers Union, the Rubber and Plastics Research and Control Laboratory (LRCCP), the Rubber Training Institute (IFOCA) and the University of Cergy-Pontoise.
Its aim is to broaden companies' product and service offerings by strengthening their competitive advantages thanks to new R&D and industrialisation techniques. To fulfil this mission, the cluster's research projects are structured around three major areas which the stakeholders located in the Val d'Oise identify with: business lines (materials, design, manufacturing processes and innovative products), energy and the environment, economics and social concerns. The effectiveness of the cluster focuses on the implementation of synergies between Industry, Research and Training – something which is already wellestablished in the Val d'Oise – with the aim of Elastopôle being recognised as a model of international competitiveness.

HUTCHINSON: A WORLD LEADER WITH TWO LOCATIONS IN THE DEPARTEMENT

media48852The Hutchinson group is the world leader in industrial rubber, with sales of €3.1bn in 2008 and a total workforce of 27,500 on 118 sites in 26 countries. It is active on all the key markets in the Automotive business, the Aerospace Industry and for consumer goods. Hutchinson's operations in France date back to 1853 and the creation of the Aigle brand, which used to manufacture rubber boots in Montargis. Hutchinson is now part of Total's Chemicals division. In the Val d'Oise, the group is represented by a Hutchinson subsidiary in Persan and Le Joint Français in Bezons. Le Joint Français, a subsidiary of the group which was bought out in 1987, specialises in the manufacture of O-ring seals. It has a workforce of 500 in Bezons and a turnover of €130m. The «Sealants, adhesives and profiles» division does business in three highly technological product families and manufactures specific products for each:
the aeronautics industry: new sealants that reinforce the air-tightness of aircraft parts used on all civil aviation models by Airbus, Boeing, Dassault, Embraer, EADS, etc. as well as in military aviation, and soundproofing products for cabins,

the automotive industry: sealants for fixing windscreens and structural reinforcement,
the construction industry: sealants for double glazing and fire insulation in buildings.
"The development of this type of product is becoming increasingly cutting-edge", comments François Souchet, Managing Director of the "Sealants, adhesives and profiles" division and director of the four Le Joint Français factories (three in France and one in Shanghai), "we have to develop new products and applications corresponding to the ever-increasing needs of our customers".

CHEVALIER AND CLERET:
PRESENT IN THE VAL D'OISE FOR OVER 90 YEARS

media48852

The historic Val d'Oise SME, Chevalier, was founded in 1925, manufacturing orthopedic belts which were shipped all over the world. Many years later, in 2001, Jean-Marc Oudot and his partners took over Chevalier, still with excellent performance in silicone injection moulding for small, detailed and often very sophisticated technical parts for airtightness and suspension (miniaturisation). Just prior to this, Chevalier had taken over Cléret, which manufactures small dual-material technical parts made from rubber and metal. The companies target the automotive and industrial markets.
With a workforce of 65 in Argenteuil in the Val d'Oise and a subsidiary employing 14 people in Romania, Chevalier and Cléret, which have a combined annual sales volume of some €8 million, are aiming to consolidate their positions and develop a strategy directed towards new markets for moulding technology in the medical, pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics sectors.
Having been located in the Val d'Oise for 90 years, today Chevalier and Cléret appreciate the département's road links to Roissy airport and the la Défense business district, as well as the wealth of resources its networks represent. Both SMEs have a 

sustainable development policy, which includes using ready-to-use, processed silicones - minimising waste and hazardous handling in this sector in which «clean» manufacturing is a must.

media26082

media26106

The Software and complex systems industry affects areas including design, production and control of measurement systems and instruments for telecommunications, automotive, security and defence applications.

carre Many industrial groups, including hallmark members of the System@tic Paris Région cluster such as Sagem Groupe SAFRAN, a world leader in biometric sensors, and Thalès, the electronics giant, conduct their business in these fields in the Val d'Oise. They are surrounded by a dense fabric of SMEs specialising in microelectronics.

SECURITY ASSETS
carre The Val d'Oise has major assets in terms of safety and security in the form of the many applications within this industry. Eight of the leading security operators are subsidiaries of international groups

working in the Val d'Oise, for example the Swedish company Securitas, the American company, Brinks contrôle sécurité, Chubb Sécurité, Silliker, Tyco Electronics and Autoliv Electronics.
Security and risk management have been a constantly growing market for several years now (+30 % per year for the IT security sector alone). The volume of business has increased since the 9/11 attacks, which sounded the alarm for many companies which are now seeking better protection for their staff, sites and IT systems.
There are also many technological innovations in this field of security, as seen with Trust Platform (PFC) projects1, SIC2 and Mobi SIC3 conducted by Sagem Défense Sécurité within the System@tic Paris Région cluster with their partners, including Thalès (cf. page 4). These include the new challenge undertaken by Sagem Groupe SAFRAN: the use of multibiometrics (facial recognition, fingerprints and iris scans) 

« In the security industry, complentarity between local R&D applied to user companies such as Aéroports de Paris for security measures at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle international airport, is exemplary. »

CHALLENGES FOR SAGEM DÉFENSE SÉCURITÉ IN THE SYSTEM@TIC PARIS RÉGION CLUSTER 

PFC: protecting diplomatic secrets and privacy
The PFC project (Trust platform) was born out of the difficulty in providing office IT which can both process information with a high level of security and interact as widely as possible with the outside world.

A typical example is that of an ambassador wishing to use a single computer to log on to Google and send confidential diplomatic telegrams. The aim of PFC is thus to combine reliability in terms of security with use of computer terminals and servers. In order to do this, the operating system (Windows, Linux, etc.) is « encapsulated » by a controlled operating system which will act as a trusted enclosure guaranteeing data protection and access to networks. This project relates to many applications, including private ones such as the confidentiality required for medical files.

SIC (Critical Infrastructure Security) for all
SIC is a project aiming to create Secure « Critical » Infrastructures such as those which ensure the operation of public transport (airports, railway stations, etc.), health infrastructures and networks guaranteeing the sustainability of living essentials such as water, health, electricity and telecommunications. The SIC is based on the development of systems and sensors which enable crises to be managed correctly in all locations where there may be large numbers of people. A group of researchers with Sagem

in Cergy-Pontoise has already tested applications such as
videosurveillance and access control using biometrics.
MOBI SIC, closely related to the SIC project, aims to define the « ideal command post » which would have been required to manage « 9/11 » or which should be operational when a crowded stadium collapses in the middle of a match or when a factory explodes. Who needs to communicate, and how? Who should be involved? MOBI SIC aims to create a mobile, modular system which can be deployed rapidly to make one-off events safe or intervene in local crises. MOBI SIC researchers are working to fine-tune solutions like these in their laboratories in order to identify the best possible crisis management for unforeseen circumstances.


«THE AREA OF SYSTEMS AND FREE SOFTWARE IS PARTICULARLY STRATEGIC FOR THE VAL D'OISE AS IT IS AT THE CROSSROADS OF SEVERAL FIELDS OF EXCELLENCE IN THE DÉPARTEMENT, INCLUDING INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES RELATING TO SECURITY (BIOMETRICS, ETC.), THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY AND AERONAUTICS SUB-CONTRACTING. »

The département of the Val d'Oise is involved in six national or world-class competitiveness clusters in the fieldsof health, digital technology, complexsystems and software, the automotive industry, aeronautics and finance. It offers the dynamism of a high-performance economic basin and quality living in a region with an outstanding natural environment. The département is located on the outskirts of Paris and is the site of Roissy Charles-de- Gaulle international airport.

At the heart of the Ile-de-France, the leading region in the country, the Val d'Oise is a competitive département just a few kilometres away from Paris. With a population of 1.2 million, it offers two very different aspects:

  • the southern edge of the département is built-up, from Cergy-Pontoise and the Argenteuil-Bezons area right across to the towns in its south-eastern corner near Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport,

  • at the same time, there are also two regional natural parks and vast rural areas of farmland: multiple cropping and stock rearing in the French Vexin and large-scale added-value farming in the Plaine de France.
    The Val d'Oise is a young region, with one third of the inhabitants aged under 20. 

ECONOMIC CENTRES OF ACTIVITY WITH A GLOBAL OUTLOOK 

media27385 Located to the north and north-east of the outskirts of Paris, the Val d'Oise is in a prime location both as the natural extension of greater Paris, and the gateway to Northern Europe (Great Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands) and Eastern Europe.
Its international nature is underlined by the presence of Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle International airport (the largest airport in continental Europe). The airport has an integrated TGV high-speed rail station providing quick connections for air and rail passengers to all the major cities in France, Europe and worldwide.

media27385 Built from 1969 onwards on a surface area similar to that of Paris, Cergy-Pontoise is the préfecture of the Val d'Oise, a city with a population of 200 000 and all the facilities necessary for the well-being of those who live and work there.
Cergy-Pontoise has an efficient transport network:

- SNCF rail links to two Paris stations: the Gare du Nord and the Gare Saint-Lazare, and lines A and C on the RER (Réseau Express Régional), bringing the journey time to the heart of Paris to just 35 minutes.

- La Défense is 20 minutes away by car, via the A15 and A86 motorways.

- Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport is half an hour away via the Francilienne ring road.

- the « Bus Express » route links Cergy-Pontoise to Charles-de-Gaulle airport and the TGV station.

- goods may be transported on the river Oise, from the river ports.

- there is a business airport just a few minutes from the city centre.

In terms of higher education, there are 18 000 students at the University of Cergy-Pontoise, and over 13 000 students at the business and engineering graduate schools (ESSEC1, ENSEA2, EISTI3, EPMI4, ITIN5, Institut Polytechnique Saint-Louis, etc.) Cergy-Pontoise, with the second-largest concentration of higher education in the Ile-de-France region after Paris, has both academic and industrial potential (with over 4 000 companies) and thus acts as an economic driving force for the whole département.

The industrial cluster at Argenteuil and Bezons, which has a university campus, specialises in aeronautics, metalworking and high-tech industry, along with fine chemicals and plastics. The new tram line from La Défense and western Paris adds to the area's appeal.

media27385 THE "PAYS DE FRANCE", to the north-west, is an area where private homes are the predominant form of development. Local stakeholders are fostering job creation by establishing and upgrading business parks for small and medium-sized businesses and industries, including those at Persan and Beaumont-sur-Oise. The creation of a multimodal cluster (waterway / rail / road) in the Bruyères-sur-Oise business park forms part of this development.

media27385 THE MONTMORENCY VALLEY is above all a select residential area. However the human-sized business parks in the combined urban areas of « Val et Forêt » and « Montmorency Valley », and those of the other towns in the area (Sannois, Enghien-les-Bains, etc.) located on the RER line and the express lines to the Gare Saint-Lazare and the Gare du Nord also have a very rich fabric of specialised SMEs: high technology and subcontracting for mechanics, plastics and electronics.

media27385 THE "FRENCH VEXIN", which stretches over the entire western part of the département, has maintained its rural feel due to continued farming and its classification as a Regional Natural Park. The quality of life there attracts new inhabitants drawn by the advantages of choice property offers in a protected environment.

The CEEVO (Val D'Oise Economic Expansion Committee), as economic development agency of Val d'Oise County Council (« Conseil General »), has been serving companies in the département and those wishing to move there since 1973. Its work is organised around four key missions:

  • opening up the Val d'Oise and its companies to the world,
  • strengthening the département's industrial and technological vocation,
  • developing networks of entrepreneurs, research scientists and institutions,
  • promoting diversity in the département.
    These all rest on a single principle: making formalities in the département easier for all existing and potential stakeholders.


MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER IN THE VAL D'OISE!

media27385 The work done by the CEEVO is valuable both for companies in the Val d'Oise seeking to develop exports and establish relationships with other countries, and for French and international companies wishing to locate to the Val d'Oise.

ASSISTANCE, ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR COMPANIES

media27385 The CEEVO keeps in contact with institutions and economic organisations. This comprehensive grasp of all relevant information enables the CEEVO to advise people setting up businesses and company heads. CEEVO's teams are available at all stages of the company life cycle: creation, expansion, research and innovation, internationalisation, transfer, acquisition and so on, working in partnership with other organisations involved in local development (consular assemblies, employers' unions, government departments, technopoles, incubators, business incubators, entrepreneurs' clubs, and others).

MANAGING AN ECONOMIC OBSERVATORY

media27385 The CEEVO gathers and uses economic and statistical information relating to the situation and business of companies in the département. This data is processed and published to provide a reliable decision-making tool for company heads and economics officers.

ECONOMIC PROMOTION FOR THE VAL D'OISE

media27385 The CEEVO regularly organises lectures and conferences and attends professional exhibitions in France and abroad. It instigates a large number of economic events and technical forums as well as running a « Val d'Oise Companies Information » point in the TGV station at Charles-de-Gaulle airport and offices in Osaka, Japan and Shanghai, China.

SUPPORT FOR COMPANIES LOCATING TO THE VAL D'OISE

media27385 A regularly updated computer database (www.implantation95.com) has been compiled to provide a quick information service for company managers seeking land, premises or offices. The information is supplied on technical sheets sent to French and foreign companies looking for somewhere to locate their premises. The CEEVO can also accompany entrepreneurs visiting selected sites, putting them in contact with property developers or local authorities.

SUPPORT FOR EXPORTS

media27385 Events and support organised under the auspices of the département's exports Committee, « Val d'Oise International » include day seminars on export techniques, conferences presenting external markets, administrative assistance for companies, approaches to foreign markets and participation at industrial shows worldwide.
The CEEVO is heavily involved in economic development agency international networks in Europe (EURADA) and worldwide (World Cities Alliance).

Technopole business parks
The technopole approach initiated and supported by the Conseil Général, the CEEVO and led by the ACCET follows the American example of clusters which define sites where the synergy of the different players (companies, research centres and experts) is symbolic of technological added value. This approach brings together the different organisations involved in technology, innovation and research in the département.

The Parc Saint-Christophe Technopole, in Cergy-Pontoise, is one of the first business parks to have been recognised as a Technopole. The Parc Saint-Christophe Technopole includes several companies with high technological added value working in electrical engineering, IT and telephone networks, telecommunications, remote bank transactions, oil, gas and transport. The ITIN (Training Institute for computer science, networks and telecommunications) has also chosen this site for its student campus.

The Sarcelles-Villiers le Bel technopole business park, close to Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport, brings together a network of companies, mostly SMEs, working in diverse industries including mechanics, baggage-handling subcontracting, public works, transport, printing, scenery logistics for the Comédie Française, and so on. It has a top-level infrastructure (roads, signing, safety). It is the second business park to be recognised as a Technopole in the Val-d'Oise.
