Printing & Publishing

  Ajouter au panier

3,982 jobs in 2009, 267 establishments.
One of the region's long-established sectors, particularly in Orne.
The sector has succeeded in investing in and integrating new information and communication technologies in its production process.
Leading companies: Groupe Corlet, Tonnellier

The long-established printing and publishing sectors are another of Normandy's specificities. Particularly developed in rural areas, the industry employed 3,982 salaried workers in 2009. Because it is closer to Parisian publishers, the sector has succeeded in maintaining activity where other national companies have failed. The region's rural nature is in no way a hindrance to the development of printing and publishing companies, the graphics industry in Orne being a prime example and even a tradition (printing, publishing, paper and cardboard). 50 of the region's 282 printing and publishing establishments are located in Orne. Printers have very rapidly adapted to new information and communication technologies which, in recent years, have revolutionised their activity.
