IPS France s.a.r.l. was established in February 2013 in the Rhône-Alpes area in France and is part of the international company Group-IPS. The entity in France was already planned for quite some time to ensure the best support for our customers in the French market. The new office is located in Lyon, a very dynamic city in the southeastern part of France.
France is one of the world's leading economies. Based on the International Monetary Fund (IMF),France is the 5th economical world power and the 2nd in Europe and it is one of the main actors in several industries worldwide.
Why Lyon and the Rhône-Alpes area?
The quality of its infrastructures, its universities (2nd after Paris) and the increasing number of businesses in this area - Rhône-Alpes area represents more than 70.000 companies in which 150 are world leaders in their industry - made Lyon the most attractive city for IPS to settle down. Furthermore the city provides good connections to other IPS entities as well as the IPS headquarters in Nivelles (Belgium).
Today, IPS France is involved in several projects for customers active in the manufacturing of high value-added aluminum products dedicated primarily to aerospace, automotive and packaging markets and for world leading companies specialized in energy management.
