The Jura eyewear manufacturer Henry Jullien finds an Italian buyer

Friday September 22, the eyewear manufacturer from Lons-le-Saunier (Jura) Henry Jullien was taken to the helm of the commercial court of this city by the Italian iVision Tech. This company of 150 employees (turnover of €7.8 million in 2022). was born three years ago from the purchase of the Safilo factory in Martignacco, near Udine, in the north-east of the country. In competition with another candidate, she won the bid for €150,000. The Henry Jullien house (16 employees, turnover of €1.4 million last year) was placed in receivership on July 20 following the failure of its owner, L’Amy Luxe. Created in 1921, it occupies a special place in high-end eyewear, due to the fact that its workshop is the only one in France to master the technique of double laminated gold. He also has his own brand, previously distributed by L’Amy Luxe. With this acquisition, iVision Tech adds “ to the BtoB production a finished product with a clear and established identity on the French market”, commented its leader Stefano Fulchir in a press release.

The real estate program “Mustard Quay”awarded last summer to the Atelier d’architecture Brenac+Gonzalez & Associés (Paris), suffered a setback due to contamination of the ground by asbestos. The 22,000 m2 site, located on Quai Nicolas Rolin, housed the Amora factory until its demolition in 2010. “This summer, the developers carried out around a hundred core samples in the area, a significant portion of which turned out to contain asbestos, to depths of 3 meters”indicated François Rebsamen, mayor of Dijon and president of Dijon Métropole. “No traces of asbestos were detected in the air”, continued the councilor, excluding any health risk. The Local Public Company “Development of the Dijon urban area” (SPLAAD), owner of the site, will however quickly stabilize the area. A geotextile film will be positioned and covered with 20 cm of topsoil over the entire surface. These emergency works are estimated at between €200,000 and €300,000. As an immediate consequence of this discovery, the real estate program is suspended indefinitely. The winning project provided for the construction of around 300 housing units in several buildings. Considering themselves wronged, the town hall and SPLAAD commissioned the specialized Parisian law firm Huglo Lepage to investigate the responsibilities. The old Amora factory was dismantled in 2010, then 17,000 m3 of polluted soil were removed, replaced by concrete rubble from the demolition of the building. The company that operated, based in Sainte-Marie-de-la-Mer (Pyrénées-Orientales), has since been liquidated. A.Morel

In the Stocamine case in Alsace, the State persists in buryingWithout much surprise, the government confirmed last week its choice to contain the 42,000 tonnes of remaining waste from Stocamine in Wittelsheim (Haut-Rhin), through the Minister of Ecological Transition Christophe Béchu. Over the course of governments of all stripes, the State has systematically sided with the position of the MDPA, the former operator of the potash mines in which the underground storage center for hazardous waste was located in 1999 before stopping. three years later, victim of a fire. And as time goes by, the argument according to which an operation to remove materials from unexploited galleries would be more and more risky has gained in relevance. This is to the great disappointment and even anger of most local elected officials and environmental associations, who fear long-term contamination of the water table. The legal battle continues and subject to its outcome, the timetable for the containment works aims for their completion in 2027. This will involve specifying the costs which are the subject of various and varied evaluations, the most reliable to date comes from the Bureau of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM) for around €90 million.
