Since its inception, Fives has coped with industrial revolutions thanks to its ability to continually reinvent itself, supported by its bold engineers, its ability to listen and anticipate industrial company needs, and continual R&D efforts. These three drivers make Fives a company focused on innovation, to look forward to the future with confidence.
In 2020, Fives continued to look ahead and develop visionary projects, seeking to always better serve its customers’ ambitions. Two strategic focuses are at the heart of this approach: digital, and the development of technologies and solutions meeting the challenge of the environmental transition.
Fives is focusing its R#&#D work on two areas: digitalization and the fight against climate change, two growing trends in the industry.
Every day, digital technology demonstrates its interest in industry. It has accelerated in 2020, in a context of limited travel and physical interaction.
Through AddUp, its joint venture with Michelin, Fives offers global solutions for metal 3D printing, a market segment in which the company is currently the French leader.
