Created in 2005, the site is the concretisation of a state of mind prevalent in our region and which is undoubtable effective as it created and developed this major project was established round one of our economic flagships: FAURECIA.

It is effectively the combination of willpower, elected officials, local and regional authorities and economic partners that have enabled NORMAND’INNOV to remain a venue for excellence both in industry as well as in research and development for the past ten years.

The site is also a well-established, veritable showcase of the industrial savoir-faire in Orne and Normandy, particularly in rural areas with dynamic entrepreneurs and productive staff, where have successful economic transformation has been achieved with quality production, mutualisation and innovation.

By building on our respective strengths and with the long-term support of the Regional Council of Normandy, the Conseil Departemental de l’Orne, Flers Agglo, in addition to the digital revolution pioneered in and by the Department of Orne, the future of NORMAND’INNOV is determined and optimistic.

Much more than a simple change of title, the name NORMAND’INNOV signals a new departure for the largest business platform in our employment base.

On behalf of the Syndicat Mixte, Flers Agglo purchased the land which has doubled site capacity. The site can be accessed both by the Pont de Vère interchange or the Flers North-West bypass.

The objective is to attract and enable companies that complement each other, with a shared and strong demand for research and development.

The site’s multifunctional aspect must be reinforced. A combination of production, research, development, trials and training currently is and will continue to be the formula for success and excellence.

Flers Agglo, hand in hand with its Region and Department partners, is determined to remain a driving force behind NORMAND’INNOV. Nothing, in effect ,can ever be taken for granted. Ten years ago when we took the initiative of creating the CIRIAM, we saved industrial employment. Today our collective mission is to build on this success to construct the future.

High performance technological equipment being constantly innovated for the benefit of all.

NORMAND’INNOV, a collaborative creation of a centre of excellence with an international scope, is exemplary both in the quality of its facilities and in its DNA.

Born of a desire to expand regional skills and experience, the site evolves according to the needs of its partners. Driven by a desire to participate in the ecosystem synergy, each of the partners has an active role: on-site team-work drives performance.

Favourable evolution of the NORMAND’INNOV hub in the past ten years

Ten years ago, the Industrial Campus for Research and Innovation of Materials (Campus Industriel de Recherche et d’Innovation Appliqué aux Matériaux – CIRIAM) was created to maintain the dynamics of a process initiated by the Faurecia plant.
A 60 acre zone was created thanks to the vision of the Basse-Normandy Region, the Orne Department and Flers Agglo. They formed a Syndicat Mixte to build an innovative site around the Faurecia plant and encouraged the installation of a research and development laboratory.
