Our Group history and continuous customer focus
Creation of Gravic – the discovery of metal plate engraving
In 1967 Gérard Jacquemin, created Gravic, an abbreviation of Gravure Chimique, meaning engraving chemically, having by chance discovered a way to engrave metal plates. He quickly identified development opportunities (particularly as the IBM group was located in the nearby town of Gaude) and started manufacturing printed circuits and engraving metal plates. The IT industry was booming and Gravic quickly developed. In1982 it obtained the certifications necessary to export to the North American continent. In 1993, Gravic became the smallest French company (10 employees) certified IS0 9002.
Growth and development – strengthening our expertise in printing and technical cutting
The increase in metal costs and increasingly competitive price demands lead us to turn to a less expensive material – plastic – and to seize its potential. With our highly qualified teams, we strengthened our expertise in printing and technical cutting on a large scale, whether in the automotive, electrical, electronics or mobile industry. More than 16 different pieces have since been present in Sagem and Alcatel phones (protective plastic films, marking labels, etc.) as well as in Nokia mobile phones. In this sector Gravic experienced its best years from 1995 to 2000.
The family business and new production sites abroad
Over the years Gérard Jacquemin was joined by his sons, first Patrice and then Olivier. Having studied at American universities, in 1997 they took up the reigns and continued the development of the company.
In 1999 the brothers decided to set up operations in Tunisia to remain competitive in a very competitive market. They recalled: “our customers wanted increasingly competitive prices in a very competitive market. For some of our products, we had a lot of manual handling. It’s hard to lower our prices with labor costs in France.”
In 2005 the group established their second international manufacturing plant, in Hungary, to get closer to many of their customers: “IBM wanted us to be closer to their location in Eastern Europe. We prospected several countries. With the relocation of HP, one of our customers, we decided to set up in Hungary. We were thus able to be closer to our partners and remain very responsive.”
In 2020 the group established its presence in a strategic location of one of the largest economic zones in China. Currently built as a joint venture, Gravic China will further evolve in 2020.
