A word from the President of COPA-DATA France

Jérôme FOLLUT

COPA-DATA France builds its development and image on the quality of its services and products.

We focus on advising and supporting companies looking for solutions for their industrial automation projects.  The application of this strategy is reflected in a reactive technical support and a development team in constant search for improvement.

We have proven our expertise in many markets, particularly in the energy sector. Our international presence has also enabled us to adapt to different markets and existing technologies.

All of this is only possible thanks to the passion and motivation of our teams who are fully committed to their missions. Today, thanks to all of us, we can be proud of the road we have travelled and continue to advance towards new challenges.

In my capacity as Managing Director, it is with a particular pleasure that I wish you a good navigation on the straton-PLC website.
