VOLUM-e inherits from a 140 years-old family tradition in manufacturing, which dates back to Charles and Henri Desjonquères founding a glass factory in 1876. Within 3DS Group, the firm MMB stems most directly from this adventure. It was founded as subsidiary to the Verreries Desjonquères in 1971 and maintains strong glass craftsmainship.
VOLUM-e acknowledges that the 4th industrial revolution is taking place. Recent progress in digital technologies and the rise of artificial intelligence let us forecast the rapid growth of customized products and of cyber-physical systems : “smart” Embedded-systems, IoT, etc.
The digitalization of factories will not enable to produce these systems but also held bridge the gap with consumers, and thus achieve great flexibility improvements. Finally, Industry 4.0 must allow to make significant energy and raw material savings thanks to productivity gains on the one hand and better product life cycle management on the other.
VOLUM-e embraces this disruption by building an additive manufacturing strike force to produce complex and customized parts, by leveraging digital technologies in its operation, and by promoting sustainable practices Under proactive leadership.
VOLUM-e defends a vision rooted in its origins which is to help the local industrial network thrive. VOLUM-e seeks to contribute, grow and last in this environment through entrepreneurial agility.
