Madame TRESSARIEU, Knight of the Legion of Honor promoted to the rank of Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 2015, Mrs TRESSARIEU, CEO of MECAPROTEC Industries, received her decoration on Sunday November 11, in Toulouse, at the occasion of celebrations of the Centenary of the Armistice in front of the War Memorial of Toulouse from the hands of Etienne GUYOT, new Prefect of the region. Despite the desired sobriety around this event, it was a very strong moment for our CEO and his family, combining the solemnity and weight of history with the high national distinction. This decoration rewards his carrer as head of MECAPROTEC Industries for many years. Indeed, since its creation, MECAPROTEC Industries has experienced a strong economic development, and has conquered its place of French leader in surface treatment by accompanying the aeronautical industry in its transformation and growth. The number speak for themselves : in 30 years, the turnover has multiplied by 15 and the number has increased from a few dozen employees to more than 800 people in the group.
