THE COMPANY

Global Technologies is a service and engineering company that designs, repairs and carries out maintenance of mechanical and electronic sub-assemblies.

Our company has rapidly expanded its presence in France and to all European industrial sites specialising in semi-conductors owing to a reactivity and service quality that are recognised and appreciated by our customers and partners.

Global Technologies is experiencing significant growth, which will be enhanced in the future due to its reinforced expansion in Europe and abroad and to the strategic alliances which it has implemented with it partners over the past years.

The company initiated a very ambitious research and development programme in 2010 thanks to support from the banque publique d’investissement BPI – French public investment bank (formerly OSEO) and the Aix en Provence territorial community (communauté territorial du pays d’Aix en Provence - CPA)

 

                         


Our company relies on a skilled, motivated and regularly-expanding team to implement a constant innovation policy. In our company, performance is consistent with quality and well-being.

Global Technologies has implemented a sustained growth strategy for its services, based on proactive marketing activities and territorial representatives.

 

 


HISTORY

Global Technologies was created in 2005, initially in order to meet a support and maintenance demand from manufacturing units based in France working for the semi-conductor industry (STMicroelectronics, ALTIS, Freescale, SOITEC, etc.) and seeking to optimise their production costs.

As from 2006, its first contracts compelled it to organise its activities around two service departments dedicated to the repair of mechanical and electronic subassemblies (PCBs and electrical power supplies), as well as an engineering department with its own design office in order to meet the demand for “tailored” solutions.

The company was very quickly led to expand its facilities & means in “specialised” workshops. In 2008, it invested in a workshop dedicated to services for the cryogenics industry and, in 2009, in a laboratory specialising in the repair of electronic radio frequency (RF) generators.

Initially focused on the development of its service activities, Global Technologies decided, in 2009, to expand its initial field of expertise in order to reach new very promising sectors such as nanotechnologies and their applications in such fields as energy, water, photovoltaics, health, aeronautics, etc.

In September 2013, the company moved its head office and workshops to its new site in Rousset (Bouches-du-Rhône), located in the “Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur” Region in the heart of one of historic sites of the the French “silicon valley”, which made it possible to significantly extend the company’s production capacities.

 


LOCATION

Since its creation in 2005, Global Technologies has been located in the Rousset Industrial estate, “Bouches du Rhône” county, France.

This site is located on the “High Technology Highway” between Spain and Italy, it is connected to the largest industrial research centres and to major European technology parks.

The Rousset Industrial estate brings together major industrial stakeholders of the semi-conductor market. Its dynamic of innovation, based on research and development activities, is enhanced by local competitive clusters. The industrial estate is easily accessible (a crucial factor for the effective operation of the company) as it is located near Marseille Provence International Airport, the Aix en Provence high-speed train station as well as major roads and motorways.
