Preactor Europe confirmed it had won an impressive array of prestigious business wins including the following:-
  • Limagrain Verneuil Holding, a specialist agricultural producer developing seed crops for approximately 50 countries worldwide.
  • Ethypharm, a pharmaceutical laboratory developing and manufacturing medicinal products in the domain of controlled release systems (DDS). Preactor will complement the company’s existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and 'n' Skep de Dynasys solutions.

  • EFECO, a European group of companies specialising in the provision of transmission equipment and related accessories
  • Félix Constructions, a leading Swiss company that specialises in the innovative design and manufacture of architectural facades; Preactor will be used in partnership with Sage ERP X3.

Mike Novels is Chairman of the Preactor group of companies and comments on the results. "We decided to open a European subsidiary to help expand our French and Continental European markets and support the growing number of partners we work with." He continues, "These promising and encouraging results allow us to move to the next steps of our ‘International Strategy’. I would like to congratulate our team for their professional approach and our new partners and customers for their confidence in our company and our products".

Thierry Faguet, Director of Preactor Europe is equally delighted with such strong business wins. "In these early years we had the goal of improving the profile and visibility of Preactor in France and in the other countries that we work in. The quality and quantity of our business wins, especially this recent surge, have shown to all the countries where Preactor now successfully operates that we have achieved this. Europe is after all our number 1 market with more than 1600 accounts. He continues, “It also clearly shows that because of the flexibility and adaptability of our products to meet all types of challenges, customers can have confidence that there is a Preactor solution for everyone!"

Thierry Faguet is understandably very confident when it comes to looking forward to 2010. "We have already strengthened our team in Lyon and we will be recruiting further in anticipation of yet more projects we expect to sign in the next few weeks. We are of course pleased with the success and look forward to further growth in 2010.”
