Engineering and project management company Blue Projects, currently active in 27 countries, has recently appointed Pierre Ridel as Country Leader for France, having opened a new office in Nantes. The company is active on the local market since 2018, delivering projects to some of the biggest players in the FMCG sector. The newly opened office in Nantes will consolidate Blue Projects position on the local market, by serving the existing clients while also attracting new ones.

The range of services that Blue Projects will deliver to the French market covers design, engineering, project and construction management for civils, process, packing, and utilities, as well as relocation of production lines and equipment. The company has a “one-stop” approach, covering the project’s entire life cycle, from conceptual design to commissioning and start.

“As we grew over the past 10 years from a local to a global company – with offices in 12 countries and projects in 27 – so did the demands of our clients, which is why we decided to open a new office in France. Because of this,  Blue Projects will be able to provide better services, become more responsive to existing clients, and build on our successful working relationships,” said Umut Demircan, Blue Projects Managing Partner, adding that “Pierre’s appointment as Country Leader is in line with our strategy to increase our footprint in France; his experience with multi-million dollar developments and previous experience with Blue Projects make him a perfect fit for the job.”

Mr. Ridel has been involved in industrial construction projects for over a decade, his past experience includes multi-million-euro developments for ST Electronics (largest semiconductor chip maker in Europe), APHP (Parisian public hospital system), UNOPS (United Nations Office for Project Services), and Ursus Breweries (formerly SABMiller).
