Specialising in automated solutions for livestock farms, Asserva (Lamballe, 105 employees, €17M turnover) is renovating its buildings with the intention of grouping its shipping departments and workshops on a single site. It has invested some €1.4M for this purpose. The company has opened up an online sales platform (technic-online.fr) which offers 1,500 spare parts for both professionals (pigs, poultry, cattle, ducks, rabbits, etc.) and private individuals. Exports account for 5 to 15% of Asserva’s turnover (Spain, Belgium, Overseas Departments and Territories, Italy, Netherlands and Canada), but France remains its main market. The company reinjects €900k a year into innovation to gain market shares.
