A few words from the Chairman

One group, a shared awareness.

Joining forces, doing things together, to be stronger and grow. 

Our driving force lies in bringing individuals together to construct a unit: the group.


One unit for the same strategy, one unit for the same direction, one unit for the same sense of belonging.

But unit does not mean uniformity or standardisation.




It is not a question of all becoming the same, but on the contrary of appreciating our differences, as partners do, complementing one another. And because the origins, cultures and experiences of each and every one of us are rich and diverse edifices, they invite us to join one another in reaching for the same high point: the common good.


In the group, individuals can get along together while retaining their distinctive characters. This calls for open, impartial awareness, resolved to find fair agreements and make decisions of general interest.

This is the alchemy of spirit and intelligence, where anything and everything is possible.

By calling for partnership in the group unit, in a certain way we are subscribing to a dynamic of reciprocity, of “doing things together”, we are seeking a linking value: common sense.


We are a rich combination of diversity and uniqueness, corresponding to a fundamental synergy. We are a unit in which anything can be done, in which the individual is part of the whole, without leaving behind any of his or her singular self, where personalities are a key element of construction, a key element of operation, a key element of flair.

We are the fruit of successive gestations, we are born and reborn in a polymorphous matrix, like the letterpress lead, molten and re-molten, so important to our history, which eternally wrote, page after page, the everyday story, never the same, of life. In the discipline of community we group together, making the number a unit of time and extending into future generations.



Jean-Pierre Caillard

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Groupe Centre-France La Montagne
