Together, let's build the future of the industry
The Automotive Cluster of Normandy (ARIA Normandy) aims the development and the sustainability of regional industry activities.
The cluster focuses on automotive industries, industrial production lines & tools, and Research & Development (products and processes).
Originally, ARIA Normandy covered automotive industry; now, due to automotive reducing business in western Europe, the cluster is spreading these activities to all other industries. A lot of commonalities exist between the different sectors (and markets) of industry.
Our project focus is "Industrial automation and IT”, “Industrial Supply”, “Production Engineering and Services” and “Research and Development” (machines and technologies for production, automation, monitoring systems, etc). ARIA Normandy has an important experience in automotive sector and is developing in other industrial sectors (for these SME). Based on our cluster strengths, e.g. high productivity and high quality industrial means, our important experience in automotive sector is fully adaptable to other business sectors.
ARIA makes life in the industrial sector. It helps companies on various items, on request, in the region.
In this context, the ARIA:
• put into perspective the market and technological developments in the industry sectors
• provides answers to the companies, public and private laboratories (inside and outside the region)
• support and promote industrial developments required.
