Verdon gives a new boost to Cordier
Concerned by the delicate situation of the “Bassin du Centre” area, VERDON made a purchase offer for Cordier that was favourably received by the receiver dealing with its liquidation.
The social aspect of the offer initially affects around fifty workers, for whom sustainable and immediate employment has been offered without resorting to temporary lay-offs.
In a second stage, after the re-start of activity, VERDON plans to relaunch metal manufacturing at the Houdeng site and then proceed with a second wave of recruitment with personnel not included in the deal.
The announcement of this acquisition has been welcomed by both the workers and the customers of the company.
Encouraged by a very big order book for 2014, VERDON sees this acquisition as an opportunity to gain a recognised range of skills and abilities.
Furthermore, this new acquisition will increase VERDON’s ability to mobilise its skilled staff in new construction worksites or plant shutdowns.
