Visit to facilities of French companies based in Bangalore
On Monday, April 13, Mr Eric Lavertu, Consul General of France, and Ms Claude Masegosa, Director of Business France (South India), visited facilities of French companies Sonovision-Aetos, Capgemini and Atos, all three located in Whitefield, Bangalore.
For Sonovision-Aetos this was an auspicious occasion as they moved into a new office space. This French company is into technical documentation and drawings for aerospace companies. In India, they are, at present, located only in Bangalore.
After the recent inauguration of the new facility of Capgemini in Whitefield, which has approximately 19000 employees based out of their four locations in the city of Bangalore alone, this was an occasion for both the Consul General of France and the Director of Business France (South India), to go for a floor-walk of one of their offices. The section handling the account of Airbus was the main highlight of the visit.
The day concluded with a visit to the French subsidiary Atos which employs, in India, about 20% of its global employment figure of 86000. Atos has 10 offices spread across 8 cities, and in Bangalore it is an IT service provider, amongst the top 5 global providers with a turnover of USD 10 billion.
