The Airwell Group draws on the expertise of LACROIX to develop IoT solutions connecting its devices





2 French market leaders join forces to develop a useful IoT solution

Airwell, a French listed company and leading designer of heat pumps in the field of climatic and thermal engineering, entrusts LACROIX – France's industrial IoT specialist – to deploy a solution connecting its devices to its AirHome application.

In a difficult energy environment, this solution enables users to regulate their heating devices more effectively thanks to centralised management of heat pumps as well as air conditioning, ventilation and domestic hot water. This connected energy-efficient solution not only makes daily lives easier and better; it also cuts down bills.


Challenges linked to relocation, with design and production Made in France

Airwell called on LACROIX's services to engineer a comprehensive solution, encompassing all stages – from design to manufacturing.

LACROIX's very own design centre, Impulse, jointly created a personalised solution by leveraging its generic technology platforms. The task at hand was evident; namely, to manufacture a product for industry that is competitive, robust and foolproof secure which optimises time-to-market.

September 2024 will see 300,000 products developed at Symbiose, LACROIX's smart industry 4.0 factory opened two years ago, in September 2022, in Maine-et-Loire (western France).


Partnering to propel the energy and environmental transition

This partnership reflects the shared strategies of LACROIX and Airwell, aimed at promoting local development and production to meet the need for increased sovereignty within industry at large. LACROIX, with its dedication to useful technology, and Airwell, a trailblazer of energy efficiency, are combining their expertise to urgently address social and environmental challenges.

By implementing a 100% Made in France solution, the two groups are collaborating to guarantee improved traceability across the value chain. This makes it easier to maintain fully operational and repairable products – another top priority, soon made compulsory by prevailing regulations.

"Airwell is thrilled to team up with LACROIX and share our skill sets; with Airwell, the technician, striving for energy efficiency, and LACROIX, a player committed to providing IoT solutions and electronic equipment. Going forward, the challenge lies in delivering useful technologies that are fully Made in France to champion the country's know-how and sovereignty in manufacturing," commented Laurent Roegel, Airwell CEO.
