Mondragon Assembly Orange celebrates its 25th anniversary
The celebration of the subsidiary’s 25th anniversary took place on 22 June, in Orange, France. This plant was the first international investment of Mondragon Assembly.
In fact, in 1994, a decision was made to initiate an internationalisation strategy with the aim of increasing the presence on the market and thus be able to attract new projects from potential customers. 25 years have passed, and year after year, Mondragon Assembly Orange has consolidated itself in the business for automation of industrial processes, becoming, along with the rest of the subsidiaries, a world leader in the Automation sector.
The commemorative event took place near the town of Orange, with the participation of the Director General and the President of the Mondragon Assembly group, in addition to all the people who make up the subsidiary’s team. Both officers thanked the people who attended the event for their years of dedication and the fact of having made Mondragon Assembly Orange a benchmark in the field of automatic assembly lines. During the celebration, some of the people who participated in the project since its origins intervened in the act to recall the first steps of Mondragon Assembly in France.
Mondragon Assembly Orange closed the year 2018 with approximately €10 million in sales and 34 direct employees. The forecasts for this year indicate that it should remain in the same line as the previous fiscal year.
