50th anniversary of our Pessac manufacturing site
It is with pride that we celebrated on September 17, 2022, the 50th anniversary of the Exxelia Pessac site.
Our manufacturing site in Pessac is one of the 12 industrial sites of Exxelia. It has approximately 130 employees. “We produce essential but inexpensive parts, but we produce 50 million a year! And we have a year of visibility on our order books", "We produce parts in complex alloys here, but also our own recipes for insulating ceramics", assures Mickaël Pelé, Director of the Exxelia Pessac factory.
This factory was founded in Pessac half a century ago: it is an integral part of the life of the City and the Region, which have actively participated in its development.
Perfectly inserted into the local ecosystem, there are numerous interactions with neighboring institutions, laboratories, universities, schools and businesses.
The Pessac factory was built in 1971 and inaugurated in September 1972. Its creation was initiated by Jean-Claude Asscher, President of the Tekelec-Airtronic group.
Initially dedicated to distribution, the Tekelec-Airtronic group launched into manufacturing under license to then develop and industrialize its own products. Its development followed that of electronics, telecommunications and IT in France and around the world. The group will reach a significant size: in 1992, with 20 companies employing 3,000 people in different countries, its turnover will exceed one billion dollars. The Pessac plant remained associated with the group until the early 2000s.
