Managing and controlling production
Since 2018, EUROPELEC has decided to relocate its production and to strengthen and modernise the capacities of its factory located in Brégy, north east of Paris. This decision is reflected particularly in the commissioning of a 1600 m² extension, which was opened in 2020.
Today, more than 90% of EUROPELEC’s products are manufactured in France.
All of the metal parts, in particular, are produced in-house while some of the other components are manufactured by a few French subcontractors, whose production is controlled using quality control plans that check the consistency and traceability of the parts leaving their factories.
Keeping control of the manufacture of the main components – which are essential to ensure that the EUROPELEC equipment run efficiently – guarantees a constant and high level of quality in production.
Know-how and transmission of knowledge
The know-how of our skilled workers (some of whom have more than 30 years of experience) is perpetuated thanks to a recruitment and apprenticeship training programme. The resulting exchanges organised with the <training centre> of the <“Union des Industries et Métiers de la Métallurgie”> (French metal industries professional union) has led to the recruitment of a dozen young metal workers, fitters and installers just during the 2018-2019 period of time.
High-quality materials and components
All of our product ranges have been designed using materials and components aimed at ensuring the durability and reliability of our equipment.
All our steels are of European origin. Certificates of origin can be provided upon request.
All our plastics and polymers are recyclable.
We choose motors from the factories of the most renowned manufacturers in Europe. We get them modified to meet much more demanding specifications than those of their standard production.
Tested products that are constantly being improved
During the development phases, the performance of all our aeration equipment is modelled and then tested, first in our test laboratories, then in partnership with IRSTEA (Research Institute in Science and Technology for the Environment and Agriculture) according to the NF EN 12255 standard.
EUROPELEC’s R&D department also works on the constant improvement of existing products, often in partnership with higher education and research establishments like ENSAM in Paris or the schools of the INP group.
Between 2017 and 2019, all of the EUROPELEC aerators underwent significant optimisations which increased their performance and reliability. This is particularly true of the fast Aquafen high-speed aerators and the SOFIE submerged aerators.
