The project "2020 vision YES!", co-created in 2010 with all employees, takes the form of 14 challenges launched on cross-functional subjects. A strong commitment to CSR runs through them. One of these actions is a training school that Kiloutou has set up.

Between 2010 and 2015 the company embarked on a series of acquisitions, which doubled the size of its network to 400 branches. To meet the growing requirements of its customers and its main shareholder, and in response to strong demand from within, a structured approach to sustainable development was launched in 2013. It's Kiloutou's "Challenge 13"!

  • To promote the values of the company internally.


In 2013, Kiloutou set up a training school in Marcq-en-Baroeul, in partnership with the Institut Saint-Louis d’Armentières (Nord) specializing in technical subjects. 

  • 11 young people who were troubled but highly motivated were selected with the help of EPIDE (a public integration body), local organizations and the "Second-Chance School" in Saint-Omer. 
  • 13-month training aimed at becoming a "Maintenance Technician for Civil Engineering & Handling Plant and Equipment". Supervision by a Kiloutou tutor throughout the training course.
