Testimonies

I’ve been working for 16 years in the field of depollution, including nearly 12 years at VALGO. I saw the company born, grow and develop in France and abroad. After having been in charge of the South-East agency for the depollution department, I am now International Operations Manager and this new adventure starts with the project of refurbishment of the Bijela naval shipyard in Montenegro. A titanic project with economic, environmental and societal issues very important for this country and a fascinating challenge!

Nicolas Rodolausse

After almost 10 years as a project manager at the depollution department of the Argenteuil agency (94), I decided on the one hand to leave the Paris region; on the other hand to discover new professions and new customer’s needs. VALGO then proposed me a new challenge, that of developing the Asbestos removal activity for the entire western part of France (Bretagne and Pays de la Loire), a mission that I accepted early 2018.

Julien Pery

I initially studied to be an Agronomist Engineer and now I am in charge of the development of the activities of VALGO for asbestos removal, soil remediation and geophysics activities in the southern part of France. What I liked about VALGO? Its unique model allows it to offer a multitude of solutions to the pollution problems of its customers.
