Drawn by the dynamic Bordeaux ecosystem in the photonics sector, R&D Vision, a company that designs imaging-based metrology systems for the aeronautics sector in particular, has chosen to set up in the Cité de la Photonique on the university campus from March.
Specialising in R&D for measuring solutions based on image acquisition and analysis,R&D Vision is planning to develop its activities in Bordeaux in 2 phases:
- Initially through a sales agency with a team of 2 to 3 people (a business engineer and two technicians) covering the South-West France area.
- Then the majority of the Parisian team of engineers working on the company’s technical platform will be transferred to boost the company’s presence in Bordeaux (5 jobs within 3 years).
Some 20 jobs could be created in Bordeaux over the longer term.
The geographical location of the Cité de la Photonique right next to the scientific community and key players in photonics is an advantage to facilitate integration and develop partnerships.
Sylvain Pineau: “Invest in Bordeaux provided customised support for our project with its two-phase development plan, and also helped us establish contacts with local networks.”
