Luxembourg is investing a lot of effort into being a major player in the digital world.

“Luxembourg is centrally located in Europe, which is an advantage for an international company dealing with different time zones,” he points out. “The country is also investing a lot of effort into being a major player in the digital world. We are benefitting from this momentum to find the right partners, technologies and innovations that we want to implement.”

Digitalisation: where manufacturing and IT meet

One of Mr Couturier’s priorities is to create more positions in the company that are at the frontier of manufacturing and IT. “We want to connect engineers who see how their production lines can be improved with IT experts who can make it happen. There are a lot of ideas in the field, and if we can capture them we can transform them into innovation.”

If we want to succeed with innovation, we need to be in a place where people innovate. I think Luxembourg is the right place for this.
