Alexandre Grosjean COMAP

Product development engineer

Abbeville plant (Somme) - With COMAP since 2005

My qualifications

I hold a two-year degree (DUT) in mechanical engineering and production.

I completed this course with an engineering degree at the CNAM in mechanics with a specialisation in automated production while working in COMAP at the same time.

For my dissertation, I implemented an acquisition and data treatment system in the Abbeville laboratory which was needed to evaluate the performance of our thermostatic heads & valves.

My professional experience

Most of my career was at COMAP.

Before I joined COMAP, I spent a few months working as a methods technician in the aeronautics sector where I was essentially making quotations.

My entry at COMAP

I joined COMAP in September 2005 as a laboratory technician, I was testing products in development but also products at the output of production line to check the conformity of our production compared to our quality requirements.

In 2010, I evolved as laboratory manager. I had, in addition, to manage the laboratory (budget, trials organization, means required to respond to requests, calibration of our measuring equipment) and the management of the laboratory technician.

I left the laboratory to join Abbeville’s design office and now holds the position of Product development engineer.

My daily work at COMAP

After testing the products designed by our design office for 13 years, I evolve today within this service.

My mission is to design new products that meets the specifications in terms of performance, cost, quality while integrating the industrial constraints of our means of production.

It is essential for these projects to respect the launch date of the products, it requires rigor in the follow-up of the planning, communication and a regular follow-up of the people involved in the project.

The "little extras" I appreciate at COMAP

COMAP is a human-sized company that gives us the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and professions.

This diversity allows us to constantly learn and my evolution within COMAP allowed me to question myself day by day and not to settle in a “routine”.
