VDM Metals France, the French subsidiary of Germany’s VDM Metals GmbH (with 1,900 employees), is a leader in the manufacture of semi-finished products (e.g. sheet metals, plates, bars and wires) made of special nickel alloys for the aviation, chemicals/petrochemicals, electronics and automotive sectors.

VDM Metals France chose to transfer its head office from the greater Paris area to Lyon in order to move closer to its existing clientele and capitalize on the excellent infrastructures that the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region offers. The company chose to set up its new office at the Saint-Priest Technology Park, ideally located 15 minutes from Lyon-Saint Exupéry International Airport and on the main roadway networks.

VDM Metals France was assisted by Aderly during its setup in Lyon, namely in its search for a site, staff recruitment, and introduction to local networks such as the ONLYLYON Ambassadors network.
