About BFM Business, Philippe D’Ornano, The co-chair of METI (Movement of Medium Enterprises) is concerned about the very alarming returns of these often industrial companies.

Strangled by skyrocketing gas and/or electricity bills, some companies have to cut back on production or worse. Like Duralex, it will put its furnace on hold for at least four months from November and place all of its employees on partial layoff to save energy and preserve your finances.

And this is not a unique case. About BFM Business, Philippe D’Ornano, The co-chair of METI (Movement of Medium Enterprises) explains: “We have seen a certain number of companies close because they realize they can no longer produce.”

Energy bills that completely erase the results

And worry about seeing “companies that face really serious situations, do not underestimate it.”

Philippe D’Ornano also believes that his company finds itself in this case with “gas bills multiplied by two (…) and electricity bills multiplied by four. Some companies, by five. The impact is gigantic”.

And before the sobriety measures advocated by the government, the leader explains that the ETIs have already activated levers to reduce consumption. Philippe D’Ornano also hopes that “the sense of dialogue” observed during the covid crisis will be the same for this energy crisis.
