As of November, 2020, Arburg GmbH’s French subsidiary, Arburg SAS, Aulnay-sous-Bois, has been acting under the direction of Pascal Laborde. In the role of Managing Director, Laborde is assisted by a team which has been offering comprehensive pre- and post-sales service to French customers since the subsidiary’s inception in 1985.

Laborde completed a degree in sales and marketing at IUT Saint Nazaire and, since, has built extensive experience in the machine construction and automation solutions, including, most recently, a Managing Director role at engineering company Tecma Aries, based in Coulommiers.

Throughout his professional career, Laborde has developed an understanding of both localised French and international B2B liaisons, as well as the French construction industry, and has also built contacts within the plastics industry.

A further milestone in Arburg’s French tenure is the planned construction of a new building for Arburg SAS, located in the Greater Paris area. Spanning approximately 1,600 m2, the structure will have approximately 25% more space, which will allow the company to provide an improved service to its customers.

The large showroom will allow the hosting of several Allrounders and automation solutions, opening up the opportunity for trials with customer moulds and use of the space for training. Demand is reported to be high for the Allrounder injection moulding machine in the medical and packaging sectors; additional areas of focus include turnkey systems and Additive Manufacturing with the company’s Freeformer.

Separate areas are being set up for the Freeformer, and the discussion of digitalisation as part of the arburgXworld initiative. As a result, Arburg SAS believes itself to be perfectly placed to deal with the challenges and opportunities the future brings.
