The two-time winner of the PM’up competition, WAUTERS, joins a small group of companies whose development opportunities are high and recognised by the Ile-de-France Region. This institutional support, which less than 1500 companies have received in almost 10 years, will enable WAUTERS to accelerate its growth over the next 3 years.
A tough selection process
After being selected and audited, the Ile-de-France Region’s jury validated the development project presented by WAUTERS based on the following criteria:
– company viability
– relevance of the strategy
– job creation potential
– international development potential
– project’s contribution to the development of Ile-de-France
– compliance with environmental and societal concerns
For more than a century, Wauters has been innovating with a pioneering mindset and has been implementing its development strategy in the heart of its ecosystem, while addressing the human aspect, the production tool and the environment.
