Build story

Founded in 1959 on the outskirts of Marseille in France, CMR was initially created to repair instruments on ships. Then it quickly shifted its focus to developing sensors and cabling systems for diesel engines capable of withstanding extreme conditions.

Today, CMR develops, manufactures and implements control and supervision solutions for the energy, industrial and marine sectors. It does this by integrating its own smart sensors and automated systems.

With nearly 1000 employees – including 100 based in Marseille – CMR Group has offices and production sites in 12 countries and generates 90% of its turnover from exports.

Long-term vision

CMR develops a variety of solutions for its clients. These include customised services to product manufacture. It now ensures that all of its services meet current regulations, as well as adhering to the principles of corporate social responsibility. They are also ISO 9001-certified and have been awarded other quality certifications.

CMR is now shifting its focus to renewable energies, the aim being to provide its clients with sustainable solutions and services by integrating digitalisation.

Aware of the role that its activity has on society and the environment, CMR is committed to sustainability, while at the same time adhering to the ethical standards required to build the world of tomorrow. To this end, its Code of Conduct and Corporate Social Responsibility policy constitute guidelines for all of its employees, wherever they may be based.

Global presence

Client satisfaction is one of CMR's main values. Thanks to its 12 sites in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America, the company has a truly global presence. Proximity to its clients – thus ensuring strong partnerships – is in CMR Group's DNA.

Corporate social responsibility

CMR aspires to being exemplary in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This management concept is based on the company self-regulating and striking a balance between its economic, environmental and social imperatives.


It is not only large companies that have corporate social responsibility policies: any company can adhere to the principles of sustainable development and commit to engaging in ethical practices.


CMR has therefore implemented a corporate social responsibility policy that gives consideration to the responsibilities it has in relation to the environment and society. It has integrated this policy into its governance system.

A company committed to protecting the environment

CMR is sensitive to the consumption of resources and strives to reduce consumption of water, energy and even paper by implementing initiatives at local level (communications campaigns, installing recycle bins, etc.).

Energy and education are what underpin the CSR policy. CMR undertakes to implement its own environmental and social projects and initiatives. All employees are involved in this CSR challenge.

Every year, CMR analyses its carbon footprint in a bid to reduce it. Initiatives to do with optimising the transportation of raw materials and finished products are central to its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

CMR trains its teams to analyse the life cycles of its products so as to improve waste recycling. Our engineering and R&D teams focus their efforts on integrating the principles of sustainable development at all levels of the company.
