Our first site, in «Ile de France» (near Paris), in spite of its potential, was quickly limited because of lack of space. That is why and for some other reasons, that in 2009 Ronan GORIN decided to create a new site in «Anjou», the «french seeds valley».
Nowadays, TECHNISEM has a true asset to follow its development. Having a new ultra modern factory, TECHNISEM can increase its fabrication team, buy new machines, improve seed storage in cold room where temperature and hygrometry are under control.
Thanks to its informatic system especially created on purpose, TECHNISEM disposes of good lot traceability and optimizes the different logistical posts as reception, fabrication, preparation and shipment of the orders. Thereby any seed quantity is identified and followed during a long process more and more accurate and competitive to satisfy the requests of our customers. TECHNISEM keeps on going evenly to improve the conservation of the seed packed, using perfectly waterproof packaging. Offering a large range of packaging, TECHNISEM can commercialize its products according to the different market needs.
At the present time, TECHNISEM has a serious work tool which allows to increase exponentially the seed quantity exported each year and decrease the fabrication lead times. The main objective is to insure quality constantly to remain the tropical market leader of tomorrow.
