Michelin is on track for the future
Michelin is stepping up the pace on its Urbalad project by constructing a new building exclusively for research and development. The project will bring its Ladoux Technology Center near Clermont-Ferrand in France up to the latest standards.
The first stone has been laid for the largest building in Auvergne
In late 2018, this building, which is designed to accommodate a large part of the site's occupants (3,300 staff), will be the largest building in the Auvergne region.
A center dedicated to innovation
A core feature of the Urbalad project, the center is dedicated to boosting the Group's innovation capabilities and shortening time-to-market for ever more innovative products and services.
