The decision to transfer its French subsidiary to Nantes is a tribute to Nantes' excellence in industrial production technology and aeronautics in particular.

World leader in screwdriving technology, Deprag decided in early 2015 to transfer its French subsidiary, formerly based in Alsace, to Nantes.

The group is a supplier of premium motors (drilling, milling) and industrial tools (saws, grinders, drills). 

Innovation is the key

Deprag did not choose Nantes at random. At the forefront of mechanical engineering, innovative composite materials and complex structures, the Nantes Saint-Nazaire metro area builds the aircraft (Airbus), boats (STX) and vehicles of the future. The "manufacturing" sector grew up around the recognized expertise of the IRT Jules Verne and universities at the forefront of technological innovation. It now includes a wide variety of businesses serving French industry in land transport, shipbuilding, aerospace and industrial equipment.

Nantes at the forefront of industrial technology

The German machine supplier, present in fifty countries worldwide, intends to take full advantage of local expertise. ”Projects involving the Jules Verne Manufacturing Valley and the concept of the factory of the future, the EMC 2 and ID4CAR clusters and the strong presence of the aerospace industry are development vectors for us", says Karel Pichard, Director of Deprag France.
