On 27 November 2015, Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Françoise Grossetête visited the French manufacturer Haulotte Group located in her constituency in L’Horme. It was the third MEP visit to a local manufacturer organised by FEM as part of its Mapping Initiative.
Ms. Grossetête is Vice-Chair of the EPP group (Christian Democrats) in the European Parliament and active notably in the Environment Committee. She is a very experienced MEP who was first elected in 1994. Haulotte Group is a French manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers. The company, over 100 years old, employs 1,500 people and has a €400 million annual turnover.
“Competitiveness through innovation was the vector of the visit; it is also the backbone of our Vision & Strategy 2020 and the driver of our industry. These visits show decision-makers why and how, and hopefully help them make the right regulatory arbitrage” said FEM Secretary General Olivier Janin.
