METALLICADOUR

Persuaded by large corporations, ENIT, the Adour Basin Union of Metal Industries and Professions [UIMM], and with the contribution of local small and medium-sized businesses [SMEs], METALLICADOUR was born out of a desire, shared by these various  players, to provide the Adour Industrial Basin with a technology transfer centre devoted specifically to the metal industry (machining, assembly and process automation). The centre has been in operation since 2015.
