Liffré (near Rennes) is home to the only Canon production site in Europe. Cutting-edge technology and efficiency are the lynchpin in manufacturing Canon products – cartridges, laser printers, digital copiers, etc. Over time, to maintain competitiveness tested by cutthroat labour costs in Asia and the global economic crisis, the Liffré site has had to diversify its product range and add other productions. It has been sub-contracting all or part of the small, medium or large production runs since the 2000s. Perineal electrostimulator to control urinary incontinence, manufacture of valves for transferring disinfecting fluids, equipment for dental surgeons and dental technicians, etc. “We offer a full project execution service for manufacturers of medical devices: studies, approvals, industrialisation, assembly and production, after-sales service and even recycling”, says Laurent Mouyna, Factory Manager. “We have been certified ISO 13485 since 2007”, which proves the Canon Bretagne commitment to the quality of its range of medical equipment. The diversification strategy is targeting other companies in audiovisual, home automation and telephone applications. These sub-contracting services (15% of the Canon Bretagne business) accounted for a turnover up by 25% in 2014.
