40 years, the age of experience...!

Very few historical players of the snowmaking market can claim 40 years of experience! This is the case for the French subsidiary of TechnoAlpin! Indeed, it all began in 1976 in France: In December of that year, the first prototype slope, equipped with air & water snow guns, was installed in Méribel-Mottaret (France) ... At the time the engineers had chosen to focus their developments on the air & water technology and full automatic snowmaking installations. Over the next 4 decades, the French team pushed innovations and released many new developments: regulating valves (YA, YB and VAR), trail automation and then machine room full automation (York Pilot, Liberty, YPLC), the development of lances, with internal and external mix guns: Borax, Safyr, Rubis – Classic & Evo, and the most recent one, the TL6. It's all this expertise and experience, which is now integrated into the TechnoAlpin group, through the activities of its French subsidiary. This experience has been cultivated throughout these 40 years at the service of innovation and of ski area operators, of course. Besides, TechnoAlpin France is one of two centers for Research and Development for the group – specialized in air & water technology. The other R&D center is located in Bolzano in the headquarters. Today, the combined skills of all the group engineers, Italians and French, fully contribute to the reinforcement of TechnoAlpin’s technological advantage on air & water tower guns, fan guns as well as software development! TechnoAlpin is composed of a team of passionate people who strive every day to deliver the best quality, the best service to their customers. These are the strong and long-lasting foundations on which is build the ability of TechnoAlpin to be the major partner of ski resorts for their snowmaking, today and for years to come.
