To meet our client’s expectations, the EUROPE TECHNOLOGIES group is pleased to announce the merger-absorption of SONATS. Indeed, our wish is to improve our visibility and our current organization to preserve our quality of services and our ability to adapt to changing markets.

Also, such a merger will allow us:

  • To obtain a unique referencing of our activities from our customers’ side ;
  • To be able to carry out large-scale projects;
  • And to become a multi-skilled operator (processes automation, assembly, welding, industrialization, manufacturing …) on metallic and composite materials

As such, and by January, 1st, 2020, it is decided to merge the two companies, EUROPE TECHNOLOGIES and SONATS, within the same legal structure : EUROPE TECHNOLOGIES.

However, SONATS will be maintained as a trademark of EUROPE TECHNOLOGIES. The same brand will continue to offer metal surface treatment solutions with our highest level of quality as usual: shot peeningHFMI/impact Treatmentstraightening/forming and residual stress measurement services.

Inauguration of Empowering Technologies China

Press Release, April, 19th, Carquefou

Empowering Technologies China


On Tuesday, April 10 was held at the Hotel Sofitel Westlake Hangzhou, the inauguration of the Chinese subsidiary of Europe Technologies Group, together with partners, customers and prospects of industrial and local authority representatives. The group thus reinforces its commitment to international expansion in parallel with its local strategy of external growth; let us recall the recent acquisitions of GEBE2, Gobio and SERVISOUD the last 4 years.

You Bo Chuang Xin, its name translated into Chinese, makes Empowering Technologies China the first Asian subsidiary of the group, the second international subsidiary after the opening in 2010 of Empowering Technologies USA (Alabama).

"Multiple meetings with Chinese manufacturers and indsutrials and a mutual trust won over time reassured me on our ability to open, manage and develop a subsidiary in China" details Patrick CHEPPE, CEO of the group. "Our on-site presence was already ensured by a network of local representatives, but strategically, we could no longer consider staying physically absent from this driving market," he recalls. Europe Technologies already has many customers in the territory (XIZI, BAMTRI, XI'AN, AECC, AVIC, etc.).

Local customer support, after-sales service and the consolidation of the aerospace and automotive markets are the primary objectives of this implementation. Current recruitments will rapidly increase the subsidiary's workforce to expand its commercial activities. Eventually, the site will be doubled by an activity of realization of the processes and own products held by the group.

"The objectives of the subsidiary and our desire to make it evolve rapidly to a manufacturing center necessarily leads us to have to rely on a local network of suppliers, we are not in a mere relationship seller-buyer" says Patrick CHEPPE.

Empowering Technologies China is located in Hangzhou in ZheJiang province.


It is the 2nd foreign subsidiary of the EUROPE TECHNOLOGIES group, after the implementation in 2010 of EMPOWERING TECHNOLOGIES USA in Alabama. Based in Hangzhou, YOU BO CHUANG XIN has one person on site, Dan WANG (Office Manager). The subsidiary brings a direct commercial link and after-sales support to the group's Chinese customers. Future production site, EMPOWERING TECHNOLOGIES CHINA will manufacture and install its equipment for its aerospace and automotive customers.
