NERGECO SA

NERGECO STORY

• Nergeco® has become a world industry.
• Founded in 1981, its turnover in 2009 was of 24 Million euros with 130 employees throughout 60 countries.
• This (annual) turnover was made up to 80% with the sales of Nergeco® equipments - half in France and half outside France, and with 20% made of dedicated services.
• The ambition of the firm has always been and still is to favour energy saving : “NERG-ECO” with fast and safe opening and closing flexible doors adapted to each trade, each process and each site.
• Nergeco® has built the foundations of its future development in 4 phases of innovation and major investments :
- 1981 ~ 1988, invention of the concept of the “customized Productivity Door®”
- 1989 ~ 1993, invention of the closing
soft-bottom edge.
- 1994 ~ 2005, accurate adaptation to each trade, each process and each site.
- 2006 : The Intelligent Curtain® allows safe just in time openings and fast closing, ideal for all new energy-efficient buildings.
Access to industrial, logistic and commercial buildings is prevented at night by rigid anti-intrusion doors. Those which are heavy and slow do not allow fast opening and closing cycles during working-hours nor the retention of calories or frigories. Après la première crise du pétrole de After the first oil crisis in 1973, rigid doors being wide open during work-hours, the openings are taken over by flexible strips or flexible swing doors, to allow traffic-flow and partly retain calories in.

The innovation' story

• 1981, first major innovation.
Nergeco combines airtightness and thermal resistance of the rigid doors with the fast opening and closing offered by the flexible doors. This was the first Productivity Doors.
It gives full room on ground level just in front of the load while keeping protecting the top thermal mattress during the major part of the opening-closing cycles.
With endless opening closing the productivity door saves enough energy by reducing the exposure time to offer its pay-back within one or two years depending on the number of daily cycles.

• 1989, second major innnovation.
The increase of the traffic-flow due to more intensive production leads to more impacts at the bottom of these new
curtains. Nergeco then innovates with the soft bottom edge. the new curtain is harmless and pratically shock-proof and so it reduces the costs of repairs and maintenance. Then these new Productivity Doors® started to be installed in most
activities, sites and processes.

• 1993, third wave of innovation.
Nergeco adapts exactly its Productivity Doors® with the soft bottom to each trade, each process, each site.

• 1995, Nergeco finalizes its “protocol of maintenance”
To guarantee a regular, reliable and economical service of the Productivity Doors® where they are. The Nergeco service Compagny can also take in charge the other equipments of the openings like rigid doors, dock levellers.

• 1998, Nergeco finalizes its concept of “customized production” to deliver each Productivity Door® just in time with cost-efficiency and reliability throughout 60 countries.

In 2006, the company has signed more than 50,000 efficient realizations, either directly (in France) or with partner distributors sometimes in France but most of all abroad (today in 2012, Nergeco doors are installed in 78 countries)

In 2011
NERGECO Group achieved a turnover of 29.19 million euros, an increase of 8.7% over the previous financial year. The fourth quarter of 2011 therefore matched the improvement in activity initially forecast (« Business activity for the 9 month period in 2011 »).
The Group, based in Dunières in the Haute-Loire region since the outset 30 years ago, specialises in the design, manufacture and maintenance of automatic flexible doors, which aim to reduce energy consumption in industrial, logistics and commercial premises. Following continuous and determined efforts in research and development, the Group now owns a portfolio of 193 international patents, which it exploits in order to create innovative new products and periodically to improve existing products.

The factories at Dunières, where the majority of the Group’s manufacturing capability is concentrated (91% of all Nergeco’s automatic doors were manufactured here in 2011), are organised in such a way as to allow the Group to maintain a sufficiently competitive position when selling in markets outside of France and also those outside of Europe.

In the last four years, nearly half of the Nergeco doors manufactured at Dunières, and representing 33% of total Group turnover, were sold in markets outside of France and were installed in 78 different countries. Although the major proportion of sales were achieved in France and Europe, an important share of Group sales was also achieved in the Asia Pacific region and very encouraging progress was also made in the USA, in Latin America and in Africa.

At the Board Meeting held in Lyon on the 31 January, the Group Chairman, Bernard Kraeutler, emphasized that « it is the strategy of continuous product innovation maintained by the Group, combined with its dedicated industrial organisation and its requisite level of human resources, which allows it to manufacture in France and, at the same time, to sell throughout the world ». He also added: «For our clients, Nergeco offers specific and essential help in improving their productivity and energy savings, in their overall business, their daily customs, their regulatory environment […]. Our ability to adapt allows us to withstand a temporary slowdown in economic activity, and to establish with confidence the next growth phase for the Group ».
