Héliantis, its story
It’s a family venture begun in 1992 with Bernard and Brigitte Neyron, assisted by four technicians. Initially, the Saint-Paul-lès-Romans trial station conducted seed trials within the very local area. But, within a short time, the company’s range of activity was extended to the Rhône-Alpes region. In 2007, a new organization was created: ‘Héliantis Expérimentations’.
Today, 10 years later, the company takes a new level in its development. The two sons Xavier and Yannick Neyron take the lead to give a fresh impetus:
- Market positioning
- Optimization of tools and quality process for the experimentation activity
- Development of the production/selection activity: expansion of the farm area and investment in new materials
Héliantis Experimentation operates in 4 regions (PACA, Rhône-Alpes, Burgundy and Franche-Comté). The company has built a strong network of farming partners in the heart of the Rhône Valley, reference territory for its climatic environment and the organization of the sector.
