A successful first step for a major project – securing the Eiffel Tower’s forecourt

19-07-2017

We are looking forward to this exciting project to secure the Eiffel Tower square!
We are proud on providing our customers with innovative bulletproof solutions.

Very nice news for the French Riviera ecosystem, with this market won this week by ProTech-Securit, a specialist in security (walls, curtains, chassis, access control, etc.), one of the leaders in the construction/bullet proofing segment, a solid SME created in 1993 by Mylène Comba. And while the company initially developed around the banking sector (windows, banknote walls, etc.), the current situation has refocused it on activities that primarily concern the safety of people.
Unfortunately, this is a buoyant market. The specificities of ProTech-Safet? To offer turnkey solutions, from consulting to installation, including the design and design department, via a dozen experienced employees. At the same time, the company managed by the Ozimek-Comba family distinguishes itself in the trade niche, supplying metal and ironworkers with high-tech materials, sometimes exclusively offered through enhanced R&D (10% of turnover, reaching €2.5 million per year, is dedicated to this business). A force of strike and autonomy that undoubtedly led to the choice of ProTech-Securit, in partnership with a Saint-Gobain group’s body armour subsidiary, for the design of the bullet-proof enclosure wall that will protect the most visited monument in Paris from July 2018.

Clean and innovative

A wall of 640 linear meters, from the Quai Branly to the Champ de Mars, with a special design: innovative glass 72 mm thick, discreet chassis, proven safety, access points that are also secured, what the city of Paris, the owner and owner, was looking for. And a prestigious contract for the Sophia Antipolis woman, already at the origin of some fine operations, UN windows in Africa, presidential lodge in Cameroon, security projects on sensitive sites. A particular market that requires an international strategy, a mission entrusted to Joris and Axel Ozimek-Comba, a second generation now active and determined to follow suit so that the company remains. Working on an operation adjacent to the Eiffel Tower will give us incredible visibility, especially in the North American markets,”says Axel Ozimek. A pampered, but not exclusive, target: ProTech-Securit is also preparing to attack from the South flank by offering its site in English and soon Spanish versions to reach Latin America.

The French Riviera footprint

Axel Ozimek is also proud of its strong territorial roots and its strong partnerships with other fine local SMEs, such as SJD (Contes), Transfométal (Vallauris) and CRC Thermolaquage.
(Antibes), mostly members of UIMM. This success at the gates of the Eiffel Tower is a formidable symbol of this.
