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.
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.
