NKT Photonics, a world leader in the microstructured fibre optic field, supplies laser solutions for scientific, industrial and more recently medical markets.
Based in France for 3 years (Brittany), this Danish company has just transferred its trade office to Bordeaux.
“This choice is part of the group’s expansion strategy, which is based both on the dynamism of the region in our sector and its geographical position, offering a new opening to southern Europe”, summarised Thomas Ferhat a commercial technical engineer, and Manager for France.
“It must also be said that we are concentrating on the scientific side, and when we look at our figures, Bordeaux is the largest market supplier after Paris. Here we find all the laboratories we work with and our most important partners such as ALPhANOV, Amplitudes Systèmes and Eolite Systems.”
Establishing a base here was a natural choice then, as was becoming a member of the Route des Lasers competitiveness cluster.
Bordeaux is becoming the bridgehead in the French market of this company founded in 1999 (150 team members), with branches all over the world.
