LACROIX Group to become a world leader in remote monitoring and connected equipment in water & energy business

The increasing scarcity of water, energy, and raw materials makes it essential to optimize their use and control.
Through our Smart Environment activity we are the French leading equipment provider for water and heating infrastructure management. With SAE IT-systems, we will now be able to address the electric grids challenges of tomorrow, such as the integration, monitoring and control of renewable sources of energy, the creation of intelligent distribution networks and control of consumptions.
