- Industrial waste heat recovery (Heat to Power, Waste to Power)
- Biomass power plants with or without cogeneration
The company also offers custom turbomachinery – ORC modules, and steam turbines – that:

The company’s pieces are equally at home as part of indoor or outdoor luxury decor.
For over 30 years, Tradition Pierre has been hand-crafting Volvic stone using 100% French traditional methods. The volcanic origins of the mineral, extracted from the Auvergne region of central France, make it highly resistant to extremes of temperature, water and atmospheric damage.
Recognized in France, Tradition Pierre is now securing its position in major international markets. The firm, which already has a presence in Switzerland and India, is exhibiting its products and expertise for the first time at The Hotel Show. The exhibition’s regional scope has motivated the company to address this booming market and the region’s many architects, landscapers and designers. The increasing number of luxury hotels in Dubai represents a real source of growth potential for the firm.
In the outdoor segment, the firm’s master craftsmen create highly expressive statues and faces carved in stone, vases, benches, pavilions, colonnades and fountains that enhance parks and gardens. They also make swimming pools, bathrooms and kitchens using enameled lava. This high-quality material comes in a wide range of luxury finishes and colors.
In indoor decor, Tradition Pierre predominantly uses decorative wrought iron combined with enameled lava or Volvic stone. Its unique creations incorporate a wide variety of materials such as zinc, iron, copper and other metals. Some are gold-plated or encrusted with precious stones – for example, a pair of fish or a shell face.
Its decorative items, made using natural minerals, can be fully adapted to suit the customer’s requirements. Its high-end custom projects are monitored from design through to completion by a team of international architects and designers.
Jean-Charles Matrone, C.E.O of Tradition Pierre, comments: “I’m very much looking forward to attending the show along with my team.

The field of technical innovation for medical devices in France is made of hundreds of startup, small and medium companies. But not big ones yet.
« Medium companies are today’s France real champions (like Vygon), and we also have very innovative small companies (like Eos Imaging or Mauna Kea Technologies)», tells Florent Surugue, SMEs and economic development manager at Snitem in this interview with Business France Radio.
Founded in 1987, Snitem is the first professional organisation representing the French medical devices and technological innovation market, carrying between 85 and 100% of the market in terms of turnover, bringing all together more than 375 companies, defending their interests on the market and helping them develop abroad.
« This market is mostly made of small and medium companies (89% of companies are under 250 people within the members of Snitem) », as Florent Surugue recalls in this interview. And his dream is to see these startups grow into small then medium than large businesses.
How could they do that? French companies’ main assets are their capacity «to develop very innovative products » and Florent Surugue is convinced that they « have the ability to show that they can create a strong value » to the French and global market. But according to him, the French market is very hard to enter right now due to strong barriers in terms of market access and these startups should start looking for a development abroad very soon in their development process.
