Over 100 employees are based in this subsidiary, the only one in France, where a showroom and the assembly platform are accessible to visitors and customers.

After a 20-minute presentation of Yaskawa group, the students visited the industrial site and got a hands-on perspective of the work of a robot manufacturer.
