Girbau celebrates 30 years in France

Girbau is celebrating 30 years in France by strengthening its dedicated focus on the country. With the slogan ‘30 ans ensemble’, the company’s leading clients, distributors and employees recently met to celebrate the occasion at the Girbau Robotics plant.

France was the country where Girbau first launched its internationalisation process. Today, it is a strategic site worldwide. In addition to its sales and service subsidiary, the site also has a manufacturing and R&D centre,Girbau Robotics. The plant, which specialises in machinery for process automation (feeders, folders, stackers) and ironers, measures 6,600 m2 and employs 100 workers.

By a strong emphasis on RDI – along with the creation of the Girbau LAB in 2018 – an open innovation platform – the company intends to be at the vanguard of innovation, energy efficiency and sustainability. One example is Girbau Sapphire, a remote connectivity solution to control laundry equipment. In short. Girbau intends to further expand its ecosystem of collaboration with international start-ups and accelerators, along with its focus on disruptive solutions in the laundry sector in the areas of clean tech and the Internet of Things.
