After 12 years as Production Manager and then another 5 years as Managing Director, Frédéric Wilmot, CEO of Matra Électronique, describes his vision for the future of the company, its unique model and its strategy.
The realization of the project to build a plant 4.0 called "HORIZON" began at the end of summer 2019, and is scheduled to start operating in 2023.
In order to carry out this large-scale project, Matra Électronique is working hand in hand with a network of trusted partners in industrial engineering, architecture, project management and transfer engineering :
/ Architecture : BODREAU ARCHITECTURE
/ General contractor : SIRETEC INGENIERIE
/ Envelope and architectural interior works : DEMATHIEU BARD
/ HVAC and plumbing : CEGELEC
/ Sprinkler : ATLANTIQUE AUTOMATISMES INCENDIE (AAI)
/ Special fluids : FLUIDES CONCEPT FC
/ Organization Scheduling Coordination of the industrial transfer : TETRIS
The eight-hectare site is located in the Bois de Plaisance Business Park, Venette, close to the A1 motorway. This fast-growing area is already home to companies such as Bostik, Plastic Omnium and Stokomani, as well as training and research partners such as Proméo Formation.
As a historic local employer, Matra Électronique has chosen to establish itself in the new major heart of economic activity of Compiègne and its region. By pursuing its long-term development, the company is therefore a sustainable part of the region's dynamism.

As the historic site at Lacroix Saint Ouen dates back to 1945, Matra Électronique has taken into consideration the directions to be taken in order to establish a sustainable strategy for the development of its industrial tool and to continue to meet all the needs of its current and future customers.
Julien Marie, Managing Director of Matra Électronique, explains the management's vision of this innovative project, promoting quality of life at work and the social dimension.
Matra Électronique places innovation at the heart of its industrial strategy. Roadmap 4.0, connectivity, innovation, flow optimisation and production automation, these multiple levers guide deployment in the digital age. As people and their know-how remain at the centre of the company's project, this approach reinforces our identity as a luminary of hardened electronics.
Keystone of industrial connectivity, the cyber secure supervision tool enables us to manage resources, processes and industrial infrastructures and paves the way for predictive maintenance.
The development of our Manufacturing Engineering System, M.E.S, reinforces the digital continuity of our industrial process.
The Connected Prototyping Island project is a workshop for the interactive and collaborative linking of production with customer engineering. It facilitates human activity while ensuring product quality.
Our production workshops will be supplied by a fleet of mobile and collaborative robots (Automated Intelligent Vehicle) whose navigation technology combines mapping and environmental recognition.
The Building Information Modeling method models the design and use of buildings, industrial and tertiary flows and provides an immersive experience for employees to accompany change.
The HORIZON project profiles the company over the next 50 years. It's a real challenge that all the employees of Matra Électronique are getting ready to take up.
Patrick Blom, employee at Matra Électronique for 30 years, was one of the 15 ambassadors drawn at random from the list of volunteer candidates.
In addition to the provisions linked to the construction of its new site, Matra Électronique considers the quality of life at work as part of its human resources policy. HORIZON focuses on improving working conditions, professional development and the living environment.
Social dialogue is constant. The organisation of the working hours is done by company agreements. Flexible hours are the basis of the quality of life at work in order to find the balance between personal and professional life.
Beyond the new industrial tool, Matra Électronique underlines the importance which it attaches to integrate the HORIZON project in an environmental dimension in line with the company values and its ambition to perpetuate a sustainable development.
The choice to locate the new industrial site of Matra Électronique in activities area of the Bois de Plaisance in Venette, based less than 10 kilometers from the current site and less than 10 minutes from the A1 highway, reflects the willingness of the company to preserve living conditions of its employees while maintaining relationships established with manufacturers, schools and local institutions.
