Bic has a new strategy: merging its factories in Boulogne and Samer, France, while safeguarding jobs. It was also decided to relocate the most expensive productions, especially in labor, and it is Tunisia that has been chosen.
The first equipment were directed to the ‘jasmine’ country a short time ago, «La Voix du Nord” reported on Tuesday, September 27, 2016.
Felt pens Visacolor and Décoralo and crayons are now produced in Tunisia.
The first machines “are being reassembled. Staff training began on site, “said the Director of Bic. Other production equipment shipments are scheduled for the end of October 2016.
