Jean-Louis is the “Jack of all trades” of Geomines : from engineering to welding of dismantling benches, clothing and vehicle maintenance, he meets all the technical support needs of our operators on the sites !
Together with his assistant Styve, they form our “rear base” : they provide the supply and maintenance of all the equipment needed by our operators on site, as well as technical assistance. In order to perform these essential functions and to place orders for compliant material, they must have a detailed knowledge of the regulations, as they change every year !
But Jean-Louis has many other assets: for each of our sites, he designs the customised parts required for mine clearance and ammunition destruction, while ensuring the safety of our operators. He is one of the reasons why we are able to offer our customers all our know-how and provide them with customised solutions.
Thanks to his many experiences in the field, Jean-Louis is very versatile : after a professional transition, he worked for 23 years in the shipyards of La Ciotat, La Seyne-sur-Mer and Dunkerque. He then worked in various jobs in the rental, maintenance and deployment of agricultural and event equipment, before joining our teams in 2013.
Since then, Jean-Louis is in his element : his great autonomy allows him to constantly take the lead, he especially appreciates the fact that the days spent in the workshop never look the same. In fact, the tasks assigned to him are very diversified !
