In the midst of a health crisis, Eurotab is experiencing a period of very strong activity ! Eurotab produces bleach and dishwashers tablets. This good shape is not new, but the health crisis has had surprisingly beneficial consequences on the group. Its activity has indeed grown by 15% these past years and will continue to do so.

A GOOD SHAPE INITIATED PRIOR THE CRISIS

“There were consumption’s peaks related to containment especially during spring when children were not at school. There were a lot of mouths to feed at home and dishwashers were running constantly. It surely gave a push to sales but we already were growing strongly before covid-19 crisis. Our growth was driven by the ecological transition and consumers’ desires all over the world to have greener products.

Current trends show that dishwasher products and bleach tablets are doing very well. We are being asked to reformulate laundry detergent tablets rather than having liquid detergents in big drums or plastic boxes like individual capsules.

Our products are compressed powder tablets which production involves low CO2 emissions and obviously no plastic. We are thus eliminating unnecessary plastic and are fighting against gigantic volumes to be transported, such as dishwashing products or bleach containers ”, explains Régis Desroches.

RECRUITMENTS TO COME

Thanks to its good economical and financial health, Eurotab even plans to hire in the coming months.

“Last year we hired 23 people under permanent contracts in Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert, mainly line operators and maintenance technicians. And we are continuing to hire around 20 people in 2021 to support this growth! Our investment project of around 4 million euros will allow us to double our production capacity! » explains Régis Desroches.

TAILOR-MADE TRAINING WITH SAINT-CLAIRE HIGHSCHOOL

As part of a partnership with the Professional Sainte Claire de Sury le Comtal Highschool, our teams welcomed 7 new apprentices to be trained as Line Operator. This specific training takes over 6 months, alternately at the Sainte Claire Highschool and in Eurotab’s production sites.

Many of our employees, Trainers, Team Leaders, Line Operators, support functions, participate in this training program and support our 7 talents.

At the end of this training, they will have a three-months contract and then, if everyone is satisfied, a permanent contract.

“This is a close to our hearts project, collaborating with Pole Emploi. »Says Régis Desroches
