Design office

Innovation has always been part of the DNA of COMEX.
While preserving its know-how, our company has never ceased to remain at the forefront of scientific and technical innovations.

The Comex design office is composed of three structures, featuring each their own expertise.

Fluids – Mechanical – Control-Command

Gathering technical experts, engineers, draughtsmen and automation engineers, these structures are responsible for producing studies that guide and justify the structural and technical choices of a project in line with the challenges of the quality management system

Our modes of intervention

One-day consulting

During a one day visit at your premises, we analyze your need and/or problem in order to provide you with advice in a written reportt

Basic study

We carry out an in-depth interview with your staff for a more detailed understanding of your needs and a visit of the site. It is sanctioned by the production of a written report including recommendations and plans. This service provides a one day visit and delivery of the report.

Comprehensive study


Analysis of your installation site with research of preliminary data, interviews for the clear and shared definition of your objectives, diagnosis and analysis of the elements, planning of realization, budget. This service involves several interviews and the delivery of a report
