Inauguration of the incubator

The kick-off is on! On February 14, EMC proudly inaugurated Route 26 at its Achères site in the presence of institutional players, clients, start-ups and employees.

A successful launch

After several months of preparation to refine the project, Route 26 was officially launched on February 14, 2019. Territorial actors such as Mrs Pouzyreff, Member of Parliament for Yvelines and aeronautical engineer, Mr Honoré, Mayor of Achères, took the floor to express their encouragement for this particular initiative on the part of an SME of EMC’s size. The inauguration was supported by a speech by Olivier Crastre, President at the time of EMC and Sébastien Potteau, Technical Director (now Director of EMC Operations).

Le Grand Paris Seine et Oise, the company’s strategic partners, were there to visit the premises, discover the industrial testing facilities and the brand new coworking area ready to host deeptech projects.

Start-ups for the future of mobility

The ceremony was accompanied by the testimony of Florent Mathieu, CEO of EikoSim, a partner company that is developing a new test simulation solution, and Igor Turevsky, CEO of Antismog, an ambitious start-up company that wants to optimize current combustion engines with a hydrogen injector box. These two projects are already working with Route 26 and herald major developments in the industrial transport sector.

A special thought for Amiral Technologies, the first start-up partner of Route 26 who could not attend this day. Amiral Technologies is developing a particularly efficient predictive maintenance algorithm with very high potential for industry 4.0.
