Since 1915, the Roussillon platform has made chemical products for your everyday life. Over time, the Rhône-Poulenc and later Rhodia plants in Les Roches-de-Condrieu and Roussillon gradually became a single multi-operator Chemical Platform that benefits from a historical background in both the chemical industry and the Rhône-Alpes region. Through exchanges with the industrial firms located there, it maintains close relationships with the other regional sites.
In 1999, the Groupement Intérêt Economique (Economic Interest Group) GIE OSIRIS was created in order to manage the common industrial services, provide power and utilities, and coordinate safety and the environment.
GIE's twenty-year anniversary passed, and its mission changed. OSIRIS has now become a recognized leading platform manager that contributes to improving the competitiveness of the Platform's clients. OSIRIS's client-focused teams are able to take action in order to provide guidance on all new projects that will help strengthen the resilience of the Platform's current and future companies.
The technical and human benefits of the region, and the expertise and skill of OSIRIS' teams, have and will continue to contribute to the growth of the Chemical Platform. The major investments made over the past few years exemplify this dynamic approach.
The Hexcel company chose Roussillon Platform among 60 possible plants in Europe to launch a factory of carbon fiber. This choice confirms the attractiveness of Roussillon.
Every year, we organize a Sustainable Development day. This is a chance for industrial firms to present their outcomes and their plans for the future, but most importantly it's an opportunity for discussion and dialogue with stakeholders affected by our industrial activities (elected officials, authorities, associations and academia).
A willingness to communicate and ensure transparency, and the involvement of local players, make local acceptability easier.
