3S Photonics transforms into 3SPGroup
Following the successful synergies between 3S Photonics, Avensys and Manlight, the Group is uniting these three companies as a single entity
The name change to 3SP aims to simplify the Group’s image and to pursue its internal and external growth strategy.
The year 2011 was marked by significant events for the Group. It announced a growth in turnover of 64% and the change of ownership with the arrival of Eurazeo a listed investment company in Europe, who became the majority shareholder of the Group in October 2011. More recently, was the acquisition of Manlight, a globally recognised player for optical fibre amplifiers and lasers.
In 2012, 3SPGroup will continue its acquisition strategy in order to strengthen its position in its historical markets, and to pursue vertical and market growth. To this end, the Group has decided to reorganise itself and simplify its image and name under one single brand.
“Beyond this marketing strategy, with the industrial and trade integration of our different structures, we wanted to offer a diversified and easily accessible range of products and solutions,” says Alexandre Krivine, President and CEO of 3SPGroup. “Our customers will continue to benefit from the increase of our production capacities and technical expertise.”
3SPGroup will be present at the Photonics West exhibition, which will be held from 24 to 26 January 2012, at The Moscone Centre, San Francisco, Booths 4508 (Canadian Pavilion) & 2111 (French Pavilion).
