Founded in 1984, the Béarn company launched its e-commerce site brico-fenetre.com in 2007 with the aim of establishing itself as a leader; it has just built a new factory with advanced technologies.


From its workshops near Pau airport, Brico Fenêtre distills its tailor-made PVC and ALU products throughout France. ” When we had this idea to create an internet carpentry distribution, we realized that there were many forgotten regional areas. ».

« There weren’t as many DIY centers as today, and we had to offer quality to everyone, at a fair price, whether in town or in the countryside. », Explains Thierry Rambert, founder of the platform.

This is how Brico Fenêtre got its first kick in the carpentry anthill, by launching into e-commerce. ” We were the first and the only ones in this sector. When the company’s digital transition was completed in 2010, we experienced an explosion in activity. Proof that our business model was effective ».


In 2016, the company once again stepped up a gear, launching the ultra-modern factory project, which has just been launched. ” This represents a very significant investment of 10 million euros: 6.5 million for infrastructure and 3.5 million for machines ».

Inside the walls, we find the best in technology, inspired by the automotive world, and applied to windows. ” We are the first to do so. Where the other factories operate with horizontal chains, for our part we have integrated verticality. This provides easier access for the worker and increases quality and yield ».


Always be in advance of a sudden …

« Few companies in the carpentry industry go online. I think this is mainly due to the complexity of the work. Carpentry manufacturing is an extremely precise and complex world, and while we wanted our website to be very user-friendly, it turns out to be very complex behind the scenes. For this, we had to work very hard, knowing that the manufacture of joinery has been our core business for almost 40 years. ».

Indeed, despite its experience and know-how, it took Brico Fenêtre three long years to develop its digital tool as it is today. ” The result is as we expected. It is very easy to learn ».


From an ecological point of view, Brico Fenêtre and the Biason Group feel involved and involved in this sector. The servers of the Béarn company are hosted by a company that uses 100% renewable and non-carbon electricity.

« In addition to our short circuit model which reduces the environmental impact, we recycle 98% of our waste, we reinject 100,000 Kw into the EDF circuit, thanks to solar panels installed on the roofs of our factories, which brings us closer to energy autonomy ».

Obviously, the new technological jewel of Brico Fenêtre is more than ever part of this CSR approach, but not only.

« We are constantly recruiting both in our production units in Serres-Castet, and on our e-commerce platform. The idea is to be able to double our turnover by the end of 2022, and therefore our production from e-commerce. », Explains Thierry Rambert.


At present, the Biason group represents nearly 300 people and 25,000 m2 of production. Brico Fenêtre is 5,000 products sold per month. A figure which is already increasing, to allow the company to reach its objectives of 10,000 products sold by the end of 2022.

« We have the ambition to become one of the key players in the online sale of joinery on a national scale. For the region, we think it would be a great thing to tell ourselves that this Biason family saga has been running for three generations, and that France is inundated with Made in Béarn products! »He concludes.

A Plouha, Charlotte and Annick Schoenn-Anchling have just created Diduañ, which means “to have fun and be entertained” in Breton. It is a company of electric bicycle rental.

“We just created it. We have been living in Plouha for 8 months but we used to come on vacation in the area. We wanted to participate in local life and do so with a means of transport adapted to the region. We will be there until mid-September from 9 am to 6 pm, 7 days a week, on the Espace France Services esplanade ”.

80 km of autonomy

Electric bikes are rented by the day with a protective helmet. The company has 12, entirely new and built in France. The autonomy is 80 kilometers for a person of 100 kg.

The advantage with an electric bike is that you can cover long distances without getting tired. Bicycles are suitable from 12 years old, depending on the size of the child. You can also install child seats.

Aperitif bag and guided tours

Charlotte and Annick Schoenn-Anchling also offer a support service. “We propose to guide people on two pre-programmed circuits with passage through tourist places”.

Two other services are named: aperitif bag and gourmet bag.

We offer packed lunch baskets with local products and if possible organic. There are crisps, bread, jam, madeleines but also fresh products like tomatoes for example.

Sanitary standards are respected: “We have everything we need to disinfect bikes after each use. ”

Among the Milliens, horticulture is a family affair. She started with Jeanine and Louis, the parents. And continues today with the children, Françoise, Olivier and Gilles. The following ? It is already written.

The brothers and sisters give themselves four to five years before going out of business. Because their descendants have chosen other professional paths. “If someone comes to see us and asks to buy the company, we discuss,” warns Françoise who is probably a little tired of turbinating sixty to eighty hours per week in periods of high activity.

A garden center is set up in the city center of Clermont-Ferrand

“You are not looking for a job, it is the job which comes to seek you”, image Olivier. “It is a profession that does not pay and which is not recognized”, continues Gilles, the eldest of the family. This does not prevent the siblings from practicing horticulture with an unabashed passion.

Louis worked at the forge

The Millien adventure began in 1971, just fifty years ago. At the entrance to the village of Doyet, when you come from Montluçon, along the departmental 2371. Louis, who works at the Commentry forge, decides to start “a small horticultural activity”.

The large greenhouse is devoted to chrysanthemums.

A first greenhouse is installed near the house with some additional tarpaulins. It produces geraniums, petunias, cineraria, pansies, chrysanthemums… And a few tomato plants which are sold by Jeanine in the surrounding markets.

“Our mother had no income. With three dependent children, that represented a financial supplement, ”emphasizes Olivier. For ten years, the Milliens no longer do the markets. “The clientele has gained loyalty,” explains Françoise. More and more people are coming to the place. And for us, it’s more convenient. We no longer have to travel with our merchandise ”.

After an experience in horticulture near Orleans, Gilles, just out of his military service, is the first to join the family business. Françoise will follow in 1983, then Olivier in 1990.

We didn’t know we were gonna end up working together

Françoise (sister)

“We did not ask the question, it was done like that,” says Françoise. I was a florist, I worked elsewhere. Olivier was also in horticulture near Aigueperse, in Puy-de-Dôme ”.

Among the Milliens, the dalhias are very impressive.

When the children arrived, the business grew. The tarpaulins were removed and a large greenhouse was built in 1984. A third greenhouse was built in 1995 and sawdust heating was abandoned for gas. “Before, sawmills got rid of it. Today, it is sold in cash, ”remarks Olivier.

Among the Milliens, everyone has their role. Françoise takes care of sales, accounting, purchasing and helps production if needed. Olivier is in sales and production. Gilles spends his time with his hands in the earth. “In this job, you have to know how to do everything,” observes Françoise. A little masonry, a little soldering. It’s like being a farmer ”.

In integrated organic production

Working as a family, as long as you get along well, has some advantages. “We can go on vacation because there are always two left.” Contrary to what one might think, the proximity to the old national road is not necessarily a source of additional activity.

“The people who live in Villefranche, Cosne, Commentry or Néris do not pass by our house,” says Olivier. They have other routes if they want to go to Montluçon, for example. The people who come to see us are that they really want to ”.

Market gardening (tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, etc.) does not even represent a quarter of the company’s activity. Flowers have always been the heart of the profession. In the large greenhouse, Gilles is currently taking care of the chrysanthemums. “We are in integrated organic production, that is to say that we do not use chemicals on the plants,” says the eldest Millien. We put ladybugs that eat aphids and small insects that fight against diseases. We are also trying to have an ecological approach ”.

Micropep Technologies, a biotechnology company, performs tests on crops in North America and Europe. Its technology would improve the nutrition, robustness and growth of plants and plants. Commissioned around 2025-2026.

8.5 million euros to heal and reboost plants, this is the bet of the start-up Micropep, specializing in green technologies. The Toulouse-based company has carried out its fourth fundraising campaign since 2016, the date of its creation. A significant sum that would allow the company to develop its technology, unique in France: “This is a new approach to plant protection. We have already raised funds for the first time in 2018. This has enabled us to show the potential of these technologies. Today, we are in the fourth, of which the ‘objective is the marketing of our products “, explains Thomas Laurent, CEO of Micropep.

Innovative technology unique in France

The technology used by Micropep is unique in France: “it is a discovery for our society. The engineers who worked on it came across this family of proteins quite by accident. The technology was then published in scientific journals. ”

It uses small proteins produced naturally by plants called “micropeptides”. The principle is almost similar to that used by the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, Messenger RNA: “These proteins control the genetics of the plant and boost the plant’s natural RNAs. But they do not alter its DNA.”

The tests are carried out in North and South America and in Europe.

Just as there will have been RNAs for vaccines, there will be RNAs for plants.

Thomas Laurent, CEO of Micropep.

“Each protein is different and adapts specifically to the needs of the plant”, says Thomas Laurent. Concretely, the technology will take the form of a product that farmers will spray on their crops. This product will allow, according to the CEO of Micropep, to “to boost the natural mechanism of the plant, in particular its development, its resistance to diseases or to improve its flowering.”

It’s a long process. It takes 5 to 8 years to develop and bring new technology to market. And that requires a big investment behind. This is one of the reasons why we raised 8.5 million euros for this project.

Thomas Laurent, CEO of Micropep.

Tests in North America and Europe

Before marketing, the start-up is currently testing its technology on crops in North America and Europe: “our goal is to change methods that do not respect the environment. It is a technology that can revolutionize practices. But the goal is not to jostle farmers, that’s why we are testing today. hui our technology with them. Today, there is a real issue and we want farmers to be able to access our products despite the weight of the big manufacturers. “

The first trials will take place on vines, soybean crops, tomatoes and weeds.

The startup of the start-up’s products is scheduled for 2025-2026. If the tests are successful, the product will be distributed worldwide. To meet the expectations of countries around the world, the Toulouse start-up plans to create a research and development sector in the United States in 2022.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(7225) "

Most marketing and sales books are about the sales funnel; however, the funnel model has a serious flaw. While the sales funnel is all about driving the customer through the funnel to make a purchase, it ignores the customer’s power to build momentum for the business. The flywheel concept, on the other hand, harnesses the customer’s energy to turn the company’s flywheel. By harnessing the power of positive word of mouth and empowering stocks, the concept of a flywheel helps a business gain momentum.

Many entrepreneurs fall into the trap of looking for the silver bullet that will make their business successful. Unfortunately, as a result of this approach, most businesses find themselves jumping from one quick fix to another, without really creating significant momentum in one direction.

The flywheel concept, also called the flywheel effect, is a business concept introduced by Jim Collins’ book “Good to Great” and explained in more detail in his book “Turning the Flywheel”. The flywheel metaphor has been used to introduce the fact that companies do not become huge and successful as a result of just one intervention or initiative. Rather, they become exceptional because of the accumulation of small victories that accumulate over years of hard work, mostly unnoticed by the outside world, until they break through.

In these books, Jim asks you to imagine a massive flywheel mounted on an axle. It is 30 feet in diameter, 2 feet thick, and weighs over 5,000 pounds. This steering wheel is your business. Your job is to get this flywheel to move as quickly as possible, because momentum – mass multiplied by speed – is what will generate economic results over time.

Jim goes on to say:

“Right now, the flywheel is at a standstill. To make it move, you put in a huge effort. You push with all your might, and finally, you move the flywheel forward. You keep pushing and with persistent effort you get the flywheel to complete a full turn. You don’t stop. You keep pushing. The flywheel moves a little faster. Two turns… then four… then eight… the steering wheel picks up momentum… sixteen… thirty-two… moving faster… a thousand… ten thousand… a hundred thousand. At some point, you can’t tell exactly when – you are breaking through. The momentum of the heavy wheel works in your favor. It spins faster and faster, with its own weight propelling it. You don’t press harder, but the flywheel accelerates, its momentum increases, its speed increases.

Turn the steering wheel

In fact, flywheel inertia, which is the kinetic energy stored by the flywheel, can maintain the momentum needed to move the business forward during times of moderate business fluctuations or when the business changes speed.

When it comes to business success, there isn’t a single idea or idea that creates momentum. Instead, it is the result of a constant push in one direction over a long period of time. And it is this momentum that can ultimately make a business appear successful overnight, where people outside the business suddenly see fantastic results but don’t understand the momentum that has been building for years. , where small wins lead to medium wins, medium wins lead to bigger wins, and then suddenly that success appears out of nowhere.

Small business owners can put a lot of effort into their business without noticeable effect until one day their business’s steering wheel gains sufficient momentum and begins to stand out from the competition. This is called the breakthrough moment. As the flywheel spins faster and faster, it will provide increasing returns for the business.

To introduce the flywheel concept in practice, let’s take a look at the master of all flywheels – the Amazon flywheel.

It starts with lower prices on more deals. Lower prices lead to increased customer visits. More customers help attract third-party sellers. More third party vendors are expanding the store and expanding distribution. More third-party sellers help increase revenues over fixed costs. This greater efficiency allows Amazon to lower prices even further.

The Amazon flywheel spins and turns. But you don’t have to stop with just one flywheel. You can create synergistic, self-financing flywheels, as shown by Simon Torrance in his “New Growth Playbook” video course, explaining how Amazon’s flywheel grew and strengthened the Amazon Web division. Services (AWS).

When it comes to your flywheel, where does it start? What follows next? You should be able to explain why each component follows the previous component. When setting your flywheel, avoid being too grainy. Your flywheel should have six or fewer components. If you have more, it’s too complicated, and you should try to simplify it.

When you have a rough draft of your flywheel concept, test it against your hedgehog concept (ADD A LINK HERE). Does this fit or do you need to change the design of your flywheel?

Your goal is to design a flywheel where improved performance in one of the components leads to better results in all of the remaining components. This way you are able to build a swing machine that feeds on itself to create better results over time.

All flywheels need a power source (motor) and the ability to reduce friction (lubrication) to maintain flywheel acceleration.

Let me share the concept of a flywheel that I use for SteveBizBlog.

The motor that introduces the energy that turns my flywheel includes the following activities:

Create one long blog post per week (Wednesdays) Teach classes for organizations like SCORE, SBDC, local community colleges like PPCC and on military bases to build the brand. small business clients every week. Answer business questions on forums and groups. Syndicate content from influencers to build awareness (Mondays). Showcase guest author content with full attribution to build reciprocity (some Fridays).

The lubrication I apply to my flywheel consists of the following activities:

Apply SEO concepts to posts to make it easier for search engines to find our content Use automated syndication tools to propagate content across various channels Outsource fungible tasks to offshore resources at lower cost.

The SteveBizBlog flywheel consists of four components:

Entrepreneurs read our content, which increases traffic. The increased traffic creates gravity for backlinks from higher domain authority (DA) sites. High DA backlinks increase our own domain authority which drives our content up in organic search results. more traffic.

The device is not very tall, but quickly find his way around the hangar at Bernay aerodrome this Wednesday July 21. The plane in question, dark, shiny and matt at the same time, is distinguished by its style and its apparent youth. This is the “Integral R” model, produced by a Toulouse company, Aura Aero, but also by the Air carpentry company, currently located in Saint-Vincent-du-Boulay, not far from Thiberville.

“The desire is precisely to combine the craftsmanship of carpentry and modern mechanics,” explains Bastien Sclafer, responsible for the avionics electrical system at Aura Aero. If all members of society are ” Cape lover 10 “, The small aerobatic plane created by Auguste Mudry, we have to admit that the latter is” aging “. And many aerobatic clubs are now seeking a successor.

Wider than the legendary Cap 10

It’s unpretentious that Aura Aero thinks it might have found it with the Integral. Based on wood, “a not too expensive and repairable material”, and carbon, the Integral R has two 43-liter tanks at the fenders and a 75-liter main tank. Its cockpit is ten centimeters wider than that of the Cap 10, “which allowed us to fit it out as best as possible”. Tablets are present and the control panel finally appears uncluttered.

Other innovations are present, such as an airframe parachute, a novelty on an aerobatic plane. “The pilot obviously has a parachute, but the plane will also have one, to stop any possible fall. »Without forgetting crash-proof seats for this aircraft at a cruising speed of 335 km / h.


This black and blue prototype aircraft, which flew for the first time in June 2020 and whose certification is expected by the end of the year, is therefore partly manufactured by employees of Air Menuiserie, a small company which was acquired by Aura Aero. Baptiste Vignes, Bernayan and employee of the Toulouse company, looks back on the ambitions for the near future.

Twenty jobs in sight

“Air carpentry will be installed on the airfield, with the key, the creation of about twenty jobs. Aura Aero sees to acquire the land. This would allow the construction of planes but also their renovation, right next to the flight tracks. Very good news for Air Menuiserie and Laurent Hard, who will remain director of the structure. “We will keep our repair habits and make some parts that will be sent to Aura Aero. “

In the cockpit, screens have appeared.
In the cockpit, the screens partly replace the dials with needles.

Four firm orders for the Integral R have already been placed and Aura Aero has many objectives. “We are also going to make another model, the Integral S, which will be really perfect for pilot training. These two two-seater will be 7.26 m in length and 8.78 m in wingspan. But another larger model is also being considered. A regional electric propulsion aircraft, with a capacity of 19 seats. The Toulouse-based company, which has seen its workforce grow steadily since its creation in 2018, is taking off.

Ocean, real name Christophe Edwin Breaux, used his Instagram account @blonded to deliver a heartfelt message to his nearly three million followers.

“Hand on my heart, this project got my mind and my imagination moving throughout it all,” Ocean wrote on her Instagram story. “Now all my work is dedicated to my family. All. My hope is to do things that last, that are hard to destroy, set it in stone. I am so happy for everyone involved and I admire you and I am proud of you and I could not have done it without you… It’s been three years since this is brewing and there is so, so I am so excited to share with all your strangers.

The catalog is dotted with close-up photos of each item as well as information on pricing, dimensions and product descriptions.

U.S. customers will only be able to purchase the Limited Collection in person at the Homer’s store located at 70-74 Bowery, New York, New York. Doors open August 9, with store hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

VACCINATION – The carrot and the bite. Several foreign companies, American, German and British in particular, have decided to push as much as possible the incentive to vaccination among their employees with bonuses. And there is also an example in France: the Breton Cooperl slaughterhouse, the first French group to financially encourage its employees to be vaccinated with a “Macron bonus”, explain Europe 1 and Franceinfo this Saturday August 7.

Indeed, if employees prove that they have been vaccinated, they are offered bonuses or vouchers. Cooperl’s “Macron bonus” amounts to 200 euros for any vaccinated worker who requests it until October 29 from the human resources department of the company which has 7,000 employees, explains France Bleu Armorique.

The purpose of the operation, emphasizes Franceinfo, is to avoid the appearance of a cluster. In addition to the fact that being vaccinated does not prevent being a carrier of the virus and transmitting it, admittedly to a lesser extent than without vaccination, this incentive policy raises several questions from lawyers.

The vaccine not an “objective criterion” to have a premium

Asked by Franceinfo, lawyer Delphine Robinet, a specialist in labor law, explains that the payment of a premium like that of the Cooperl slaughterhouse is “contrary to equal treatment” between workers. “It is not a relevant criterion which allows one to give a bonus and not to the other.” Ditto for lawyer Eric Rocheblave who, with Capital, contests the legality of such a measure because “a bonus must be paid according to an objective criterion. But the vaccine is not. ”

In a guide intended for companies, the Ministry of Labor recalled on June 30 that information on the vaccination status of employees could not be required by the employer, with some exceptions. Likewise, reminds Franceinfo, the ministry stressed that health data could not be collected and stored by the company.

Moreover, the company Cooperl could have to pay damages and cancel this premium in the event of a class action against this device, according to Hofée Semopa, lawyer interviewed by the magazine Challenges.

“From blackmail to the purse”

As a reminder, in France a company cannot force its employee to be vaccinated, nor to take a screening test or take a temperature. However, from June 9, with the extension of the health pass, several professions will no longer have a choice. Members of the health and social care sector have until October 15, 2021 to provide proof of a complete vaccination schedule, under penalty of being suspended without pay. Also, employees of restaurants, museums, cinemas or even long-distance transport have until November 15 to be vaccinated in order to avoid a suspension of the employment contract without pay.

Within the Cooperl company, this bonus does not only make people happy. Some employees believe that this is an unjustified breach of medical confidentiality. “Me that revolts me, I see it as blackmail with the wallet”, denounces one of them nearEurope 1. “It’s a little bit of an incentive. Everyone decides if they want to be vaccinated or not. For me, it’s personal, ”says another. The CFDT, the majority union, questions the legality of this bonus, which it considers discriminatory.
