KWB – The specialist of heating systems with wooden products inaugurates a new office in Rhône-Alpes
« KWB is an Austrian manufacturer which has developed and produced innovative premium heating system solutions since 1994. The company became the specialist for fully automatic biomass heating systems, using wooden pellets, chips, and logs.
To ensure KWB's innovative solutions for the future, they established in 2006 their first research and development center for biomass, which is the largest private-own R&D center in Europe. More than 60,000 customers trusted in their company and opted for the KWB brand.
Subsidiary of KWB Austria and already active in France since 2007, KWB France is now working with more than 250 installers/partners.
To be closer to its customers and to carry on its development, KWB France decided to open up an office in Rhône-Alpes in 2013. The activity has started since June 2013. This new office, composed of 4 persons, will be in charge of the Rhône-Alpes, Auvergne, PACA, and Languedoc-Roussillon regions. This new activity will bring a dozen of jobs in the mid-term. This setting-up became possible thanks to ERAI and its local network, in particular in the selection of premises and in the support for recruitment.

« For the president of SES Europe, Farid Paul Dawalibi, the choice of setting up in Europe, was completely strategic. Indeed, SES didn’t have any office in Europe before but the idea was always there within the framework of business development. The fact that Mr. Journet and I met this famous president, Mr. Dawalibi, the great professor in this field in the early 2011 in Montreal, helped us to establish a trustworthy relationship between us then it led us to the idea of setting up in Europe in the end of the same year.
Moreover, the contact with ERAI made us move on rapidly and made also this project real. Thanks to the network of ERAI, it helped us to go through the heavy administrative procedures. SES appreciated very much the support of ERAI and their partner, especially in finding premises and the legal and accounting professionals. Our choice of setting up in the business incubator in Vienne results from custom-made services of ERAI.»
