This year marks SCAIME's fortieth anniversary. As we look back over the road we've travelled and all we've achieved, many words come to mind - rewarding, exciting, unexpected, but above all grateful, because none of it would have been possible without all of you: shareholders, customers, employees, partners, and suppliers.
Since its creation in 1983, SCAIME has established itself as a major player in the industrial weighing and measurement sector. After starting out by producing load cells for two French scale manufacturers, the company has undergone remarkable expansion by turning to the international market, now generating 50% of its sales from exports.
SCAIME has developed particularly in the field of weighing, collaborating with packaging machine manufacturers and engineering companies specializing in factory automation. This development has been accompanied by new skills in electronics and software, reinforcing the company's ability to innovate and meet the technological needs of its customers.
In addition, SCAIME has broadened its horizons by offering new industrial measurement solutions, particularly for demanding sectors such as aerospace and medical. This diversification has enabled us to gain a foothold in key markets requiring high precision and rigorous quality standards.
But if the company has been able to grow and stand out, it's thanks to the commitment of its employees and the trust placed in it by its customers. At SCAIME, human values are at the heart of the company, and this is reflected in the close relationships we maintain with our customers.
Our values have not changed and have been ingrained in the company's DNA since its inception. We have a commitment to our customers and to ourselves: to provide quality solutions, to listen to our customers and to respond proactively to their needs. In return, SCAIME's customers have recognized the quality of the company's services and products, trusting its teams to provide them with innovative solutions tailored to their needs.
Responsiveness is also a key value at SCAIME. We understand that time is of the essence for our customers. Over the years, we have adapted to the ever-changing world we live in and done our utmost to meet our customers' expectations quickly and efficiently.
Finally, performance is an essential pillar of SCAIME's strategy. Thanks to ongoing investment in research and development, the company can offer innovative, high-performance solutions. Our employees are constantly trained to keep abreast of the latest technologies, enabling SCAIME to provide its customers with products that meet their most demanding needs.
In conclusion, SCAIME is a company that has succeeded thanks to the commitment, responsiveness, and performance of its employees, as well as the trust and loyalty of its customers. For its fortieth anniversary, SCAIME can be proud of its achievements. Continuing to adapt and innovate, thanks to our know-how and today's technologies, are the essential ingredients for our continued development.
