The new French ambassador met Hidria

Florence Ferrari, the new Ambassador of France to Slovenia, visited us in Spodnja Idrija with her delegation. We presented the work of Hidria to her, informed her about our Corporation development guidelines and showed her around the high-tech labs of the Institute for Materials and Technologies.

As an introduction to the new French Ambassador in Slovenia, Ms Florence Ferrari (second from the right in the photos), we presented our Corporation, Hidria. We showed her our high-quality innovative products and solutions that make us one of the best global manufacturers of automotive and industrial technologies in our segments.

Then we presented the work of our high-tech labs at the Institute for Materials and Technologies. She was also informed about our Corporation’s guidelines for electromobility and the new technologies for the green mobility of the future that we are developing.

She was enthusiastic about what she heard and saw, as for example she also heard that our Corporation has been for years successfully collaborating with all major French automotive companies. They see Hidria as one of their best global partners. A clear indication is also the prestigious title awarded by the PSA Peugeot-Citroen-Opel Group that declared us the best supplier of this French multinational for the second year in a row.

As France is one of our strategic countries with a very important automotive market, we agreed that we will continue to decisively strengthen our good relations.
