Based in Steinsel, Cebi employs 700 of the group’s 3,500 employees in 12 other countries around the world. The company is active in the development and production of electromechanical components for the automotive industry, household appliances, ventilation and E-mobility.

“We have always placed innovation at the heart of our strategy,” explains Paul Elvinger, member of Cebi Luxembourg’s Board of Directors.

“All our products are developed in our R&D centres and tested in our own laboratories. Our Luxembourg competence centre is also one of the most important players in the field of Industry 4.0 and is in the process of building a new 2,400 m2 research centre equipped with a laboratory with state-of-the-art facilities.”

The company has embarked on a project to transform its Luxembourg production unit into an intelligent factory where automated machines are able to communicate with each other and analyse data.

It requested assistance under the RDI Act from the Ministry of the Economy and received support and technical expertise from Luxinnovation throughout the project preparation phase, i.e. the entire phase prior to submitting a request for assistance to the Ministry of Economy.

“Luxinnovation’s availability and technical expertise have enabled us to improve our project in certain technical and strategic aspects, as well as in risk analysis,” explains Franck-Alexandre Sallebant-Bessone, in charge of developing digitalisation projects at Cebi.

While the project preparation, as well as the plans or various documents, were obviously carried out internally, Luxinnovation contributed to the structuring of the project, particularly in the context of an R&D collaboration or for the identification of eligible costs under an aid scheme.
