A total of 400 to 450 people should be hired in total in 2023. 

In Vendée, on the industrial side, the group is looking for all types of production profiles. The R&D functions (electronics and others), technical services, quality, process, maintenance and logistics will also be expanded. For the head office, positions related to IT and human resources are to be filled.

The Atlantic group has 900 employees on permanent contracts (a number that has doubled in twenty years) in its industrial activities of design and manufacture of electronic cards, electric heaters and traditional or thermodynamic electric water heaters. The group has recruited 130 employees in 2022 and intends to continue its efforts to strengthen its plant. In early 2022, the group completed the investment that will enable it to double its water heater production capacity.
