Today, the Group gathers 9 subsidiaries and 2 sales offices in the world, for a turnover of 50 million euros. "The path from SME to intermediate size business is just like a caterpillar that turns into a butterfly: it implies a long-lasting internal transformation", states Guillaume Bernard, Asia Director and son of the CEO Etienne Bernard.
