We’re glad to announce that PROSE is now operating from France. This will be our 10th office in now 7 different countries.
Our relationship with France goes a long way – we’ve been working within the French market for a long time, but this will be our opportunity to focus on the French market, with it being one of the biggest railway markets in Europe. This way we can be closer to our customers and fully understand their local needs and give our support on site – which is something we as PROSE hold at heart when working on our projects.
The French railway market has been going through some interesting developments over the past years, and the future looks just as exciting – with its near-future mainly characterised by the mergers of giants Alstom and Siemens, as well as the regionalisation of local passenger traffic.
These developments, along with many others, make us even more enthusiastic provide our full spectrum of PROSE services in France. Our more than 270 employed international experts will be there to find the right solution for our customers who trust us to be their engineering partner.
In the past, PROSE has already worked within the French market with clients such as Alstom Signaling, Alstom Rolling Stock, CFD - Compagnie des Chemins de Fer Départementaux, Ateliers du Groupe Ermew, Euro Cargo Rail and Eiffage, supporting their engineering needs to arrive to implemented innovative projects. Our diverse and rich experience, together with our know-how within the French market led us to create not only projects, but also fruitful relationships within the railway industry.
Our French office, situated in Lyon was inaugurated last week.
“I am very happy to be here today in Lyon with Frederic to officially kick off our activities in such a large and promising market,” says Riccardo Loni, Director of Business and Corporate Development introducing Senior Project Manager Frederic Dutertre, “as a Senior Project Manager with long and successful experience in the rolling stock business, I’m sure Frederic will enable the growth and success of this new PROSE initiative”
“Based on 30 years of experience in Project Management and 20 years in railway industry, I join PROSE to develop their activity in France. I will put all my effort and my experience to provide the best of PROSE and the best of myself for the new customers. A 150 % involvement within a light and flexible structure.” concluded Frederic Dutertre.
We are looking forward to this new experience in France! Not only will this be an exciting challenge for PROSE, but also an opportunity for us to experience the French market on site, and so to contribute to the further development of rail mobility in France.
