All the team at MILLE407 wishes you happiness and health for this new year. We hope that 2022 will provide occasions to meet again, even if remote working is now anchored in the operating principles of many companies. We would like to maintain and develop the close contact we have always had with our customers. In 2022, we will seek to strike a balance between our presence at your side and remote meetings in order to offer you services that always exceed your requirements.
Thanks to our loyal partners and clients, 2021 has been a very busy year, rich in operational successes, exciting projects and beautiful real (or too often virtual) encounters. We would like to thank all those who have trusted us since our creation and who have supported us despite the complex context created by the Covid19 pandemic. This year, we were fortunate to win, with the Alsaceteam consortium, the concession for the Ports of Mulhouse-Rhine. We also participated in several projects for the creation or takeover of port terminals in Europe and Africa and continued our collaboration with the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône on the master plan projects for the Port of Lyon Édouard Herriot. Finally, we have lead various other assignments in the transport and infrastructure sector, either directly or in collaboration with partners. We have progressively extended our field of action beyond the port world, into related fields: multi-modality and in particular the rail sector, logistics and warehousing, and energy.
These successes and the opportunities offered to us this year have therefore led us to make strategic decisions. To continue our development and always offer the best to our customers, MILLE407 has opened its capital to new shareholders. Vincent AUDRIC, historical partner of the company and based in Washington, DC in the United States, will accompany the company in its strategy and growth and will develop the themes related to Digitalization. Mathew PAUL joined MILLE407 in October 2021: after a career in the aerospace and defense industry, leading international teams to development and integrate complex systems, he then Directed the Technical and Infrastructures Department prior to taking over the management of the Eurofos container terminal in the PortSynergy Group; he brings his expertise as a leader on multiple aspects: industrial methods, industrial-port equipment management, maintenance and operation optimization as well as human resources management. But our growth doesn’t not stop there! In the next few weeks, MILLE407 will welcome a fourth partner who will complete the staff with additional transversal competences… we will tell you more very soon!
2022 will be a new year of development during which we will diversify our activities by expanding our core port expertise. As we have already done in 2021, we will evolve, independently and in strategic partnerships, in the mobility, infrastructure and energy sectors.
Once again, we wish you all a prosperous 2022 and look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
