From the invention of the press-stud for the textile industry, ARaymond's history is full of innovation.
Sustainability, innovation, exchange
« Our mission is to create value »
A family business geared towards the future
Created in 1865, ARaymond has, for several generations, developed manufactured and marketed fastening and assembly solutions for several generations. Its status as a family business allows each descendant to consider its long-term development, outside of the financial requirements imposed by investors.
The concepts of continuity and independence of the family business are part of ARaymond's key values.
Innovation is in our company's DNA
Since its inception, ARaymond has known how to be inventive by creating the press-stud, a small assembly now used worldwide.
A core value of the company, innovation has always been encouraged and developed within teams. More than an exclusively product-focused approach; it is now deployed at all levels of the company: manufacturing processes, customer services, management methods, etc.
A company of "teams that work together"
The attention paid to the men and women who comprise the company is reflected in its philosophy and its organisation. ARaymond has developed a cooperative structure, organised around a network.
The goal is to enable the skills, ideas and expertise to be shared, through a flexible, cross-functional and adaptable structure according to needs. By encouraging initiative the ARaymond Network allows everyone to have the role of "cooperative entrepreneur".
These exchanges, between countries or from one activity to another, are creators of wealth on a personal level, and value added to the company's customers.
« The company's mission is to create value that contributes to: cut customers' costs, improve quality, participate in efforts to preserve the environment, enable people to reach their potential within the company, to develop a more 'human', freer way of working. Our mission really is to create value and meaning »
