Eric Boudot

President of the GCK Group

“EMI was a significant and long-standing supplier to our subsidiary, GCK Battery. When the opportunity arose in 2023 to acquire all its activities, we saw it as a chance to integrate a number of missing skills into the GCK Group. This addition to our portfolio of companies allows us to strengthen our overall offering to accelerate the decarbonization of transportation.”
