With its extension project supported by France Relance, the Icare group strengthens its development ambition.
Over the past 25 years, the Icare Group, an expert in contamination control at the service of industrial health, has mesh the entire French territory and gained an international standing. Today, it invests more than 2 million euros on the Biopôle Clermont-Limagne in Saint-Beauzire to provide its headquarters with an additional 1,300 m2, an extension that allows it to strengthen its development strategy.
The extension project was hampered in 2020 by the health crisis. The company was then dedicated to preserving jobs, recruiting and adapting its business, becoming the European reference for the certification of surgical masks.
In 2021, supported by an 800,000 euro grant from the Recovery Plan – Support for Industrial Investment in Territories Initiated by the State, the project was relaunched and will be finished in mid-2022.
In Saint-Beauzire, Icare already employs 120 people out of the group’s 200.
Thanks to this investment, the company is expanding its laboratory workspaces and modernizing its production. The group intends to continue to hire in all its fields of activity and contribute to the relocation of production resources in France in the field of industrial health.
The project is also part of an environmental approach. It will reduce the energy consumption of the Saint-Beauzire site by 30%.
