Yesitis will accelerate in Clermont-Ferrand

Revive connected vinyl records, Yesitis’s first flagship product, are still spinning. The start-up created in 2016 became known thanks to this system that allows connecting the artist to his fans, and vice versa, giving access to other content and applications.

The innovation earned Yesitis an award at CES Las Vegas 2017 and further local recognition at the Puy-de-Dôme Business Trophies in the same year in the “digital innovation” category.

Important markets in the automotive sector

And in 2018, again in Las Vegas with another award for an energy label to optimize heating systems, developed for Engie. Because if Revive still lives, Yesitis has explored many other fields since then. Still in music, but for cars, the company developed a speakerless on-board audio system, using transducers, with Clermont-based start-up Accu Design. The automotive sector, with the development of electric vehicles, has just provided two other important markets for the development of Yesitis, with Renault and the Swiss group Softcar: on-board sensors connected to the dashboard for vehicles scheduled to be launched by the end of 2023. .In addition to a lightweight air conditioning kit, less energy consuming than traditional systems, intended for the Mobilize rental vehicle fleet, with Renault stamping.

Make fire with all the wood

Who says auto says Michelin, also in the portfolio of Yesitis, which has developed specific sensors for earthmoving tires.

Lately, the company has diversified into the agricultural sector, with a connected earring developed for Livestock Technology that enables the management of swine farms. And still very recently in the nautical sector, with a box destined for a boat rental company, currently in the design phase and whose production will start in eighteen months.

A production site in Brassac-les-Mines

In short, Yesitis is in full swing and fully justifies the company’s second fundraising, held in June 2021 in the amount of 8.7 million euros, to finance in particular the acquisition of EMI’s production site in Brassac -les Mines. , which has a relocated site in Casablanca.

“The Brassac unit is a unique site in Europe. It allows welding, plastic injection, mechanics, electronics and wiring, a fully integrated process. With design in Clermont-Ferrand, we offer our customers an attractive all-in-one solution from idea to production. 🇧🇷

Laurent Coussonnet (president of Yesitis)

Prospects and hiring

In an increasingly tense context, the company will remain in 2022 with a turnover of around 15 million euros. It employs 132 people: 29 in Clermont, 87 in Brassac and 16 in Morocco. And the prospects opened up by their new contracts should translate into signings, adds the president: “We are planning five or six in Clermont and ten in Brassac in 2023.”

The facilities in the city center, in Clermont-Ferrand, were no longer sufficient. On December 1, Yesitis will move into new offices in La Pardieu that are larger and more functional.
