2017: Sale of Trading and Assembly activities
Over the period 2016-2017, ABMI reduced, and then totally ceded its trading (purchase and resale of equipment) and assembly activities. The turnover generated by these activities, resulting from a previous repurchase, had taken a significant proportion. These activities, by their nature, were very far from their core business. The decline in importance and then the transfer of these activities was logical, and allowed us to refocus the group’s strengths toward its core business: engineering (product, manufacturing process, and industrial installations). The sale was effective mid 2017.
