It is with APF34, an adapted company specialized in industrial integration employing people with disabilities and/or integration, that Bulane has entered into a subcontracting partnership.
The adventure began in February 2018, where for 3 weeks, 2 employees of APF ENTREPRISES 34 were trained by engineers, in the premises of BULANE.
In parallel with the training, the Methods department, in collaboration with the team leader and operators, defined an optimized, ergonomic production line that can be adapted to the increase in throughput. The line was then installed by the Maintenance department to start the pre-series.
At the end of April, production was able to start with a gradual increase in production.
“If possible, we want to work on the territory in an ecosystem with people who have a CSR approach. Hence this bet with Christophe Rey to make disabled people work in integration. The 400 machines were made by the 45 employees of APF 34, who manufacture 80% of each device, the rest being made at Bulane. We will entrust them with all of next year’s production, or about 800 machines. “, specifies Nicolas Jérez.
