The specialist in fittings and equipment for yachting Plastimo is due to take delivery of a new headquarters in Lorient in 2020. Yann Cornec, its managing director, tells us more about this new building and the importance of the project for the company.

New administrative buildings for Plastimo

Based in Lorient since its creation in 1963, Plastimo does not need much of an introduction to anyone familiar with the nautical and recreational boating market. Installed in the area of Lorient La Base, in 2020 new administrative buildings will be built. Work began with the destruction of the old building in December 2019. " The planning envisages delivery of the new building in July 2020. With a surface area of approximately 800 m² composed solely of offices, it will group together the administrative support, marketing and design office functions "explains Yann Cornec, Plastimo's Managing Director.

Reaffirming Plastimo's presence in Lorient

Established in the town of Morbihan since its creation, the company wanted to show its attachment to the Breton port. The operation will also improve the working conditions of the employees, who are currently working in old premises near the submarine pens. " We pioneered the installation on the submarine base. The others, who have since arrived, have more modern buildings. We thus reaffirm our presence in Lorient, with a recent building, better insulated and more in line with the brand's image. It was a project expected of the staff that shows the ability to live well in our home.. "says Yann Cornec.

Supporting the growth of the company

The new building should make it possible to project into the next few years. While the current headquarters is 650 m², the new one will be 800 m², which is almost 30% more space. " All services can grow. It is a project that accompanies Plastimo's current dynamics with the capacity to absorb the company's growth, whether organic or external. As a reminder, we were 60 people at the time of the takeover in 2012 by Alliance Marine and we are now around 100 employees "says the Director General.
