Goodbye Plastic Omnium, Hello OPmobility

Plastic Omnium OPmobility
Plastic Omnium becomes OPmobility

By changing its name from Plastic Omnium to OPmobility, the automotive equipment supplier is embarking on a new chapter in its history. Thus confirming the acceleration of its strategic transformation into a leader in sustainable, connected mobility.

“Almost 80 years after its creation, OPmobility marks a major milestone in the Group’s history. This name pays tribute to our past and our values, while projecting us into the future,” commented Laurent Burelle, Chairman of OPmobility. He then explained: “OPmobility accurately translates our profitable growth strategy in sustainable mobility, bringing together our historic automotive activities and our technological diversification, whether in electrification, hydrogen, lighting, or software.”

And hydrogen is a strong industry, as can be seen from these articles, here, here and here.

The transformation was already underway when the company launched its software offering, Opn’soft. “With this new name, we are addressing all the players in sustainable mobility, in every geography. It is a powerful brand name, synonymous with technological and industrial excellence for exploring new horizons,” explained Laurent Favre, Chief Executive Officer of OPmobility.

With an economic turnover of €11.4 billion in 2023 and a global network of 152 plants and 40 R&D centres, OPmobility relies on its 40,300 employees to meet the challenges from a more sustainable mobility.
