Groupe Rocher, with the support of its suppliers Axilone and Albéa, is equipping the Marcelin Berthelot Polyvalent Highschool of Questembert in production tools.

As part of its CSR policies and proximity to school educational institutions, Groupe Rocher, with the support of its historical suppliers Axilone and Albéa, is providing students of the High school Marcelin Berthelot from Questembert, in the Morbihan, with production equipment since the start of the school year 2018.
 
This approach is a good example of continuity of CSR policy conducted by the Group for many years. Indeed, rather than destroying industrial molds that are no longer used in its production cycle, Groupe Rocher donated them to the professional sections of the Breton High School. This gives them a second life and allows students, beyond models or prototypes, to use the tools actually used in today's industry.
 
This initiative also aims to strengthen the links between Rocher Group and vocational training. It will also take the form of a technology watch conducted by high school students. The aim will be for them to identify alternatives to processes and materials currently used by the Group and its suppliers and replace them with biodegradable and bio-sourced materials.
 
A partnership that makes it possible to better prepare technicians for the industrial challenges of tomorrow, in line with sustainable development.
