Extraordinarily quick reaction saves the day

The only possible rescue is a quick replacement of the machine. In case of FGP Systems, they were able to get a replacement in the course of two weeks. read...

Beam, on the other hand, was formed in 2012 and has subsidiaries in Cincinnati as well as Singapore and has customers in France and abroad in the aerospace, defence and energy sectors.

“The arrival of Add Up and its shareholders, Fives and Michelin, enables us to secure Beam's future development and benefit from their industrial expertise and the pooling of our respective resources." CEO at Beam Vincent Gillet added.
