KTM Advances to produce Serious Games in Northern France

KTM Advance - e-learning - Serious Games - IT - Lille Region

KTM Advance, European leader in e-learning and customized professional training with “Serious Games”, has announced that its next-generation games unit will be based in Valenciennes. Two other French sites—Albi and Strasbourg—were in the running, along with international rival Montreal. Decisive factors in the winning bid were Valenciennes’ rich industrial environment and location, making it an ideal springboard for expansion into markets in Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

“Locating our production site in Valenciennes is an important step in our growth,” said Yves Dambach, Chairman and CEO of KTM Advance. “I’m convinced that the exceptional infrastructure and business-friendly environment in Northern France will allow us to reach our production targets for our Serious Games line—a premium product."

Today the customized training packages sold as Serious Games are produced at the company’s head office in Paris, but KTM Advance plans to ramp up production in Valenciennes. EditUp, its new content subsidiary will operate out of temporary premises until the grand opening in 2014 of Valenciennes’ 15,000 sq m “digital greenhouse”—a structure designed to host businesses, the three SupinfoGroup schools, an applied research center and a virtual reality center.

KTM Advance’s decision will create 100 direct jobs in the Valenciennois region over three years.
