CGR International, upon selection by BPIFrance and the French Ministry of Industry, has been awarded with the two very first subventions granted as part of the “France Relance” economic relief plan dedicated to the automotive industry. These substantial subsidies will enable CGR to accelerate its ambitious industrial modernization and automation program at two key production sites in France to enlarge the production range for new mobility markets.
The first project concerns the upgrading of the slitting line for metal sheets in CGR’s factory in Sarrebourg. The line supplies the production of flat spiral spring mountings for safety-belt retractors. Clients include main automotive equipment manufacturers such as ZF, Autoliv, Joyson and others.
The second project is about transforming CGR Saint-Yorre’s production tool for assembly, packaging and quality control, thus increasing productivity and training capacity.
