I would also like to extend my warmest thanks to all the loyal employees of BIO-UV Group, who, through their daily commitment, contribute to the company’s success in France and abroad since nearly 20 years. The funds raised will allow us to accelerate our momentum and seize all opportunities that present themselves, both on our historical markets and the ballast water treatment market, which is set to see major growth.
