Why Nantes?

Nantes, French Metropolitan area of about 900.000 inhabitants, developed through the years upon a world-class industrial know-how including:

       Aerospace, through a production site of Airbus and a local cluster of more than 65 companies. The Airbus production site (2 000 employees) in Nantes is where the centre wing box – the structural heart of all Airbus aircraft – is produced. Nantes is also a leader in the manufacture of structural parts in carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). Nantes’ employees also produce the nacelle air inlets for the A340-500/600 and the A380, and all Airbus radomes.

       Shipbuilding: STX (former Chantiers de l’Atlantique) famous for building some of the world’s largest ships since the 1930’s (Harmony of the Seas, Queen Mary 2, Batillus...)

       Energy: strong local expertise for the production of offshore wind turbines and other related equipments delivered in France, Denmark and the UK, as well as technological SMEs.

       Automotive, through one of Renault’s innovation and R&D centre

       Railway: strong local expertise organized in a cluster of more than 30 companies

«Fransk-Norsk Handelskammer gjør mye, og har sin fulle del i en større enhet som jeg har ansvar for å koordinere. Ambassadens økonomiske rådgiver, UbiFrance /AFII, FNHK, Frankrikes Eksportråd i Norge, BPI France (Frankrikes offentlige investeringsbank) og de franske regionene er en del av denne store gruppen. Målet er åpenhet og løpende dialog, slik at vi sammen kan øke Frankrikes utenrikshandel.»

"Siden januar 2009 har Fransk-Norsk Handelskammer tatt seg av lønnsadministrasjonen for vår struktur i Norge. Fransk-Norsk Handelskammer gir oss rask service av god kvalitet, og vår kontaktperson gir oss alltid raske tilbakemeldinger, minner oss på visse tidsfrister og oppdaterer oss på viktig informasjon.
Jeg er svært tilfreds med samarbeidet vi har hatt med FNHK i flere år nå, og håper at dette samarbeidet fortsetter lenge."
