Villeurbanne. Bel Air Camp, new center of excellence for Auralpin textiles

Bel Air Camp, and its concept of workspaces, has just added an activity and 2,800 m² to its bow with Bel Air Textile. Its basket, already composed of Bel Air Industry, Bel Air School and Bel Air Business, now culminates at 16,000 m² spread over four sites, and a hundred companies supported for 600 employees concerned on a daily basis.

This new building, developed with the CCI and Unitex, houses an industrial third place to accommodate, train, create and produce all types of textile activities. The former site of the Faust Mécanique Générale company, rue Frédéric-Faÿs, was renovated for seven million euros. The premises offer workshops, a fablab, and will host an accelerator from the start of the school year, as well as photo shooting rooms.

The first six occupants of the premises are the design collective Crafters, the art embroidery house Vangart, Ozur (swimwear for synchronized swimming), Moreau Sports (gymnastics leotards), and the ethical and colorful fashion of WOP World of Pop.

“We will also be recording the arrival of Maya Formation and a CAP couture. It is important for the textile industry to showcase these professions that are not very well-known and that are in great need of manpower.”explains the director of Bel Air Camp — 12 employees —, Pauline Siché-Dalibard.

Small and large companies will work side by side to tighten the sector in its framework. Bel Air Textile is currently only 30% occupied, while the other three units are operating at full capacity, or almost. “After Bel Air School, two openings in two years, that’s enough!” smiled the director. For 2024 in any case. But we will have announcements in 2025…”
