Environnement S.A was established in 1978 by Mr François GOURDON, former engineer for the Ministry of Environment. He was responsible for the development of a new generation of ambient air analysers based on optical techniques.


These analysers were used for in-situ real-time measurements, whereby traditional techniques were based on the use of physical & chemical testing which required manual laboratory analysis.


Since its foundation, the Company has grown substantially, due to a sustained effort in Research & Development and a series of successful acquisitions in the fields of air, water and gas emission monitoring.

 In 1988, Environnement S.A launched its very first range of microprocessor-based digital analysers.


The strategic development of Environnement S.A has delivered its rewards tenfold :


1st strategy prize awarded by Prime Minister Michel Rocard


EURO-PME award, Crédit Lyonnais, Expansion


Export Oscar, best international vocation award


Export Golden Mercury (Chamber of Commerce)


Sustainable Development Award (MOCI, The International Trade Magazine)
