3 meetings to understand industrial innovation

In this episode, the French actor Jérémy Sanaghéal takes a look at industrial innovation, the first important pillar of the Symbiose project. For this, he goes to meet Stéphane, Christelle and Christophe, as well as robots and cobots at the factory!  

Part 1: Automation with Stéphane Zocchetti and the Exotec warehouse

On the construction site of the future factory in Beaupréau-en-Mauges, Jérémy meets Stéphane Zocchetti, Warehouse Manager at Electronics Activity of LACROIX. Together, they talk about the Skypod solution provided by Exotec to manage the automated warehouse and customer benefits.


More surface area, more flexibility and productivity, this adjustable solution of an automated warehouse will allow us to store the components more efficiently. Along with a fleet of robots, this technology brings a real change in the way we work.

Part 2: Digitalisation with Christelle Ménard and the IBP tool

The IBP planning and simulation tool on which Christelle Ménard, Customer Planner Referent at Electronics Activity of LACROIX, is working was created in the current factory. With Jérémy, Christelle explains how important the challenges of digitalisation are for our customers.


The collaborative IBP tool connects to our different production interfaces and yields faster and more reliable results to meet the growing needs of the industry. It enables us to stabilise our production plan and therefore it makes customer interaction easier.

Part 3: Industrial transformation with Christophe Boy and Schneider – LACROIX partnership

To build the new factory, the LACROIX teams relied on Schneider‘s expertise in lean management. Christophe Boy, Consulting & Tendering Director at Schneider Electric France, tells Jérémy how the partnership has enabled the industrial transformation of the current factory.


The aim of the Symbiose team is to build a new factory, a benchmark in terms of performance and competitiveness. The factory’s industrial transformation requires continuous improvement processes as well as a digital and cultural transformation.

With promises of exponential growth in the world of IoT, LACROIX’s clients need quick, flexible, reliable, innovative and competitive partners to bring their projects to life in the best possible way.
