Bouygues Energies & Services has acquired Sea Productique, an integrator of robotics, automation and industrial IT solutions, to further its ambitions in the Industry 4.0 market.
Industry 4.0 is seen as a priority for strategic development that helps manufacturers to improve the performance of their sites and processes.
With Nantes-based Sea Productique, Bouygues will be strengthening its expertise in automation. Its team has been joined by 80 employees – sales staff, engineers and technicians – working in four design offices: automation/robotics, industrial IT, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.
Bouygues will supplement its global offer, from engineering to maintenance (engineering design, industrial works, automation, industrial transfer and industrial maintenance) and expanding its territorial coverage in France with new customers and partners.
Sea Productique, which generated revenues of €16.8 million in 2019 (about £12.054 million), was launched in 1991 by Daniel Durand, director and shareholder, and has developed a diversified portfolio of around 350 projects each year across France in key sectors such as the agri-food, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries.
The company will form part of the energy and industry division of Bouygues Energies & Services and will be incorporated into its automation business unit.
