As part of the Forum on Internationalization presented by the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, Montréal International and Investissement Québec, Triotech, a world leader in interactive entertainment, announces today the acquisition of France’s CL Corporation, a company that specializes in the design of immersive and interactive animation experiences. Reputed for its flagship project “Attention Menhir!”, a 300-seat 4D theatre installed at the Parc Astérix just outside of Paris, this new Triotech subsidiary will make it possible for the Quebec-based SME to expand its ability to create exceptional multimedia attractions for the entertainment and tourism industries on a global scale. Through this acquisition Triotech establishes a permanent base in Europe centred around CL Corp’s installations in Rennes, France.
“CL Corporation has impressive technology and know-how as well as a major presence in Europe,” said Ernest Yale, Triotech’s founding president. “Above all, however, it has demonstrated a great ability to develop customized solutions quickly for their clients. I am delighted that this French company with 30 employees is joining forces with Triotech in order to create new experiences together and strengthen our position as a key leader in the worldwide attractions industry.”
Christophe Lucchini, co-founder and president of CL Corporation, said: “We are proud of this transaction that partners us with a recognized leader in our industry, one that has played a creative and technological leadership role for so many years, not only in North America but around the world. We share Triotech’s values of innovation, customer focus and commitment to excellence and we are pleased to provide our organization a springboard to continue its development.”
The acquisition will allow Triotech to take advantage of CL Corporation’s extensive know-how regarding simulators and platform motion as well as its special effects and virtual reality expertise. Together, the two companies will have an increased presence worldwide with locations in Europe, Canada and China.
