Taking an idea and turning it into a product.
i2S offers its customers an INNOVATION PROCESS that is complete,
flexible and economical.
Complete because our departments cover all steps in the product design
chain from product marketing to serial production.

time to the great satisfaction of their markets, major international customers
entrust i2S Innovation to imagine, design, develop, industrialize, manufacture
and maintain the vision products and sub-assemblies they need.

benefit expected by our customers. To this end, i2S Innovation has developed 4
integrated engines into its project management that allow project development
costs to be minimized:

from the initial phases up until the start of production
- A functional approach to the cost price of a product
- Transparent tracking of project costs and progress status.
- Financial engineering ranging from risk sharing by i2S, to
collaborative financing, to PCRD-type (Research Framework Program) requests
