About La Fabrique de l’industrie
La Fabrique de l’industrie is a think tank created in October 2011 by UIMM (the largest French employers’ union), the Cercle de l’Industrie (grouping 30 influential companies) and the GFI (Group of Industrial Federations), with the aim of boosting and improving collective debate on industrial challenges. Its Chairmen are Louis Gallois, chairman of PSA Peugeot Citroën and Pierre-André de Chalendar, CEO of Saint-Gobain.
As a centre of thinking and debate, La Fabrique takes an in-depth, multi-disciplinary approach to the current situation and perspectives of industry in France and Europe, the attractiveness of its professions, its relationships with different stakeholders, and the opportunities and challenges brought about by globalization. It organizes exchanges of opinion and analyses to shed light on complex, subtly different situations. It readily works with any institution that can help it accomplish its missions. La Fabrique de l’industrie is a resource centre for all those involved in debates on industry: it gathers information, creates new spaces for dialogue, and produces critical reviews that decode the multiple points of view.
