The strong infrastructure, skills and research partners makes Luxembourg an interesting location for industrial digital transformation projects. Armacell drives its global industry 4.0 processes from its headquarters located here.
Innovative environment for digitalisation
Armacell’s vision is to digitalise in order to enhance its operational efficiency as well as its value to customers and employees. Chief Information Officer Laurent Couturier has taken the strategic decision to grow his IT team in Luxembourg with skills in the fields of cloud infrastructure, cybersecurity and software development.
Luxembourg is investing a lot of effort into being a major player in the digital world.
“Luxembourg is centrally located in Europe, which is an advantage for an international company dealing with different time zones,” he points out. “The country is also investing a lot of effort into being a major player in the digital world. We are benefitting from this momentum to find the right partners, technologies and innovations that we want to implement.”
Digitalisation: where manufacturing and IT meet
One of Mr Couturier’s priorities is to create more positions in the company that are at the frontier of manufacturing and IT. “We want to connect engineers who see how their production lines can be improved with IT experts who can make it happen. There are a lot of ideas in the field, and if we can capture them we can transform them into innovation.”
If we want to succeed with innovation, we need to be in a place where people innovate. I think Luxembourg is the right place for this.
The choice of Luxembourg as the central node is strategic. “If we want to succeed with innovation, we need to be in a place where people innovate. I think Luxembourg is the right place for this.”
