Workforce recruitment for Chemical Plant in France

Case Study


    Our client in eastern France manages the world’s largest production site of Adiponitrile (ADN). They conducted a planned maintenance turnaround at the site in Chalampé, France, from September to December 2019.

    This turnaround enabled the client to perform preventive maintenance and inspection work to comply with regulatory requirements and implement investment projects to enhance competitiveness, safety and environmental performance in the long term.

    The most significant investment (250M€) completed during this turnaround was the project to install the clients advanced ADN production technology at their facility, a 50/50 joint venture.


    Due to the nature of turnaround projects, the client identified a need to recruit and mobilise the entire turnaround workforce quickly, compliantly and efficiently. Not only was it important to find personnel with relevant technical experience, but they also needed to speak French to a professional proficiency, be available to mobilise quickly
