When GreenMot started its activities in October 2010, it chose neither a “comfortable” market nor a simple path. The market for the testing of engines has a large number of actors with well-established leaders. At the time, this market had experienced several crises, particularly in the automotive sector. And GreenMot didn’t take the easy way in order to break into this market; it decided to start from scratch, without taking over an existing company, and hence having to develop its complete client portfolio. But its founder and president, Stéphane Londos, has vast experience and he chose an approach that would quickly enable the company to hold its own: he focused on precision tests, and if the necessary sensor did not exist, he developed a custom sensor in order to adapt it to the structure to be tested, and not vice versa.
That is how GreenMot uses its in-situ sensor directly integrated into the engine to measure the torque of the tested engine. This sensor has been specifically developed in order to be adapted to the mechanical and environmental stress of the engine. HBM is at the heart of this strategy. As a technological partner from the very beginning, HBM supplies the complete instrumentation chain, for the majority of GreenMot’s applications. Both companies benefit from this privileged partnership: GreenMot is able to distinguish itself from its competitors while HBM consolidates its know-how in engine applications and uses its experience and knowledge to develop new products.
