EFINOR sells all its energy and defense activities to FRAMATOME
- Framatome announces the acquisition of the EFINOR group’s subsidiaries operating in the nuclear power and naval defense sectors in France and the UK. This operation allows Framatome to increase its skills in welding and qualified welding standards, while strengthening its position in component manufacturing and in high value-added services for its customers.
- Framatome will benefit not only from the technical and industrial expertise of EFINOR’s Energy and Defense teams, but also from its existing relationships with local customers and partners in France and the UK. Following the recent integration of the BHR Group, this new acquisition, which includes facilities in the UK, confirms Framatome’s commitment and position as a major partner in the UK nuclear program.

“Without SOCIETEX, we would certainly not have succeeded in completing this transfer. At each phase of the project, they were able to anticipate and/or resolve the problems that arose for us. SOCIETEX was able to frame the debates, negotiations and expert exchanges always with a listening approach, relevant advice and often to operate the necessary mediation. The professional backgrounds and experience of SOCIETEX’s employees gave us confidence in our approach to the issues. We worked with the feeling that we were a single, united team.”
