Life in business: an exporting company

How do companies organise their production, manage labour relations, find sources of financing, implement strategies for development? Are the answers to these daily challenges comparable for a start-up, a restaurant, a food retailer, the largest market in France, an industrial company, a company that introduced embedded donations in France?

In the third video in our "Life in business" series, you will find out about Thuasne, a company specialised in the manufacture of stretch fabrics for use in sportswear and in medical textiles. Learn about an intermediate-sized enterprise company (ISE) that has been operating for more than a century.

How did the company overcome the crisis in the traditional textile industry? How did it manage to meet the challenges of innovation, competition and globalisation? And what part did the company’s 2,000 employees play in these changes? Find out the answers to these questions through a joint interview with the Group CEO and the  workshop manager of the Group’s Saint-Étienne plant.
