Southeast France plants seeds for a fertile small tech future
With the recent launch of a MEMS fab in Crolles, near Grenoble, the southeast of France is beginning to look more like the French version Silicon Valley. Tronic's Microsystems' new facility will start producing custom-made MEMS later this year and will allow the company to quadruple its production capacity, said CEO Peter Pfluger. Another winner for the region will be the expected fall 2005 opening of the Minatec Center for Innovation in Micro and Nano Technology. Situated at the gates of Grenoble, Minatec is still a work in progress, at least as far as the buildings are concerned.
