INNGENIOUS: Matthieu Mary, study coordinator for Household Appliance and R&I projects

My philosophy: “make the most out of life every day.”


My role at Segula Technologies:

 I’m a study coordinator for Household Appliance and R&I (Research & Innovation) projects.

I interact with customers a lot, and work with them directly. I’m constantly on the lookout for ideas and innovations. In particular, I work on developing Groupe SEB products across all of their product sectors.


Professional experience:

I’ve been working at Activetech since the beginning of my career, so since 2005.



I started with a vocational baccalaureate in Material Tooling and Forming, then a BTS advanced technician’s certificate in Plastic Injection Tooling Design and Production, and finally, I took a Project Management course at ISMO (Institut Supérieur du Moule d’Alençon).


 My biggest project:

I’ve worked on a lot of very interesting projects – unfortunately, however, most of them are confidential so I can’t talk about as many as I would like. But one project that was key for me was the development of the Rowenta 360 upright vacuum cleaner.

It took a lot of research and development in terms of its kinematics and mechanisms.

I was closely involved in these developments and it’s nice to see the product being advertised on TV at the moment.


 My greatest passion:

Spending time with my family, travelling, cooking, motor racing, and keeping up with the latest football news.


 My biggest dream:

I was lucky enough to achieve my biggest dream of visiting Japan. Now I’m planning to go to Brazil one day.


The best thing about life at Segula:

At Activetech, we’ve always had a good working environment with our colleagues, and I think that’s what I enjoy the most.
