Design Office

With FORGINAL medical for 5 years

I was in the tooling design office, like I am here. The work here is a bit different on the materials we use.What I like about my job is that it is never the same! There's something new to do every day. It is anything but monotonous.

You can't make any mistakes in the medical field. You have to be really precise and it involves teamwork. When I am working I am always thinking about the others and getting things done.

My job is very interesting, and I have a lot of responsibility. We are the people who certify that FORGINAL medical parts are compliant and defect-free. I like the fact that my job demands rigour and being meticulous


Sales Assistant

I enjoy working as a team and working with the various departments to ensure customer satisfaction and business growth. I am very proud to be able to contribute to the success of Forginal as a sales assistant and to contribute to the spread of Thiernois know-how in a variety of environments such as hydraulic fittings, defense parts, transport parts and hip prostheses.

Dominique SAUZEDDE

Design Office

With FORGINAL medical for 17 years

I love what I do because it is one of those rare jobs where you go from a simple "lump of metal" to a finished precision part. In my job, I create things, using tools that have virtually infinite possibilities.


Design Office Project Manager

What I like about my job is that I can design and improve what already exists. Here, I have been responsible for the standardisation of all the tools, the aim being to optimise the whole process in my department.

Sylvain DUMAS

I appreciate the dynamic of Forginal which continues its investments with the arrival of robotics on its production lines. In our workshops, old practices and historical know-how coexist with new technologies.

Philippe PERRET

My role as export sales rep is to realize our international customers’ forging projects. Going from an idea to small and medium-sized production runs; to do so, you need to listen to customers, advise and support them, be the interface between process engineering, the design office and production.

I like that you have to adapt to each sector and each customer as well as being in the profession of forging which is one of the oldest but one which is also definitely part of the future.

Sandrine BRUGÈRE

I got into forging by chance, but since I started I have never stopped training for my job. I love it. I hope to take the place of my older colleagues who are retiring.

Laurent MARTIN

What do I like about it? - Doing things that are useful and beneficial to others. We produce prostheses that improve people's lives and their comfort. You also have to really like precision and a job well done

I manage the polishing department. I set up the whole department, and I am continuing to improve it. The management have complete faith in us and this is great. I believe that's the way good work is achieved.


Testing Technician

With FORGINAL medical for 6 years

I did loads of training courses on final testing. Then I joined Forginal where I have learned about the assembly and ajustment of tooling for medical products. I love the "perfection" aspect of medical forging. You have to be very precise in everything you do.

Brigitte VIALLET

Testing Department Manager

With FORGINAL medical for 10 years

I set up the testing department and implemented all the in-production and final quality monitoring. You need a firm grounding in quite a few areas, including metallurgy, heat treatment and measuring systems. I am still learning every day and it is fascinating!


ERP Manager

With FORGINAL medical for 22 years

I prepare all the launches, the in-house organisation of the workflows in the workshops and the definition of lead times, including subcontracting. A great deal of organisation is necessary, and to this end we are preparing for the installation of a new ERP system.
