ISO 10648-2 Standard Maker
Jacomex is an uncompromising defender of waterproofing.
Jacomex is at the origin of the implementation of ISO 10648-2, the only internationally recognized standard that classifies containment systems according to their watertightness. As early as the 1970s, the company actively collaborated with the French nuclear authorities in the establishment of a French tightness standard (Afnor M62200) and manufactured under CEA license the Oxyfuit device for testing glove boxes. The company campaigned at the end of the 1980s in the development of the ISO 10648 standard to maintain rigorous standards, particularly Class 1, compared to the much less demanding German DIN 25412 standard. Today, almost all Jacomex glove boxes are excellent Class 1.
In 2019, the Jacomex team worked on an aeronautical project of Titanium welding integrated into a jet engine production line. All the departments involved in this project are represented: sales, preliminary design, technical, design office, conception, production, assembly, project managers.
On a daily basis, participatory exchanges happen at all levels between all departments. A positive work atmosphere and professionalism deliver greater satisfaction of our clients.
Jacomex is also about teamwork with mutual assistance, training and learning. 10% of our workforce on average over the last 5 years was made up of apprentices to train the generations of tomorrow.
Equality in the workplace is an essential principle for the Jacomex team and we are committed to employing as many women as possible in our industrial sector. At the present time, our equality in the workplace index cannot be calculated as we do not currently have enough female members of staff to qualify for the index, even though the number of women in the team has more than doubled over the last two years. We have now obtained 35/45 points this year as a result of this increase which is a reflection of our “equal pay and jobs for all” policy.
Every year, all employees meet to share news about the company, training, feedback, and have a positive experience together.
Jacomex is an organization that is as teal as possible, allowing each employee to take his or her place and to be empowered. The empowerment model does not mean unorganized, because the Management Committee ensures that each project is properly monitored.
