The genesis of Eclore, from space to the industrial manufacturing process.

Eclore Actuators was created by Pierre GAUTIER-LE BOULCH after finishing his engineering studies in 2019.

During a university exchange in Seoul, he was trained in the use of folding in the field of space propulsion.

On his return to France, the idea of ​​making this technology accessible to industry led to the creation of a first automated machine . The first promising results transformed the end-of-studies project into the company Eclore.
