Air Liquide creates a new network of company to answer the necessity of innovation
The Executive Leadership Team at Air Liquide recently highlighted “the appetite for innovation” among the three mega trends that will guide our action in the next few years.
Innovation is a factor of the differentiation and survival our Group needs to maintain its short-term performances and its long-term future.
To carry out this strategy, two new organizations have been set up. The goal of the first, Advanced Business & Technologies - aB&T - is to ensure that the innovations and technologies developed are more efficiently brought to market. As for the second, the iLab - reporting to R&D - its role is to invent them.
Positioned at the forefront to market new technologies for new business, the new network Air Liquide Advanced Business & Technologies has been created last spring. This network of companies animated by the same corporate spirit, innovative, agile and organized into four main units:
- Advanced Business
- Advanced Technologies
- Advanced IT
- Advanced Investment
Advanced Technologies is a pool of technology development. Thought the design, manufacturing and installation of gas equipment, it gives the Group unique leadership in the gas business. It provides aB&T with technical solutions to develop new markets, thanks to innovation and competitiveness.
Advanced Technologies is also a center of excellence for training new hires, which help enrich the Group’s Talent pool.
aB&T has a new logo which is the umbrella brand of the network. Therefore Air Liquide Advanced Technologies changes its logo but keep its legal entity.
