Ali Zemrani, CEO of UMPM
The acquisition of our company by the WEARE Group enables us to continue the industrial adventure I began in 2006 with Michel Autechaud (MDV) and Didier Lemens (MAUREPAS). It will see UMPM’s clients and all the company’s employees begin a new chapter in technical requirements compliance and customer awareness, qualities on which the company’s success was built. The WEARE project offers exceptional development prospects and synergies.
