GALLET F1XF at the Elysée Palace in Paris
Everyone knows the French baguette, Camembert cheese or French wine, but now the GALLET F1XF fire helmet is also an iconic symbol for France!
The GALLET F1XF helmet was selected as one of the most innovative and iconic products that have been manufactured in France for the last decades. Amongst the 1,750 applications received, only 120 were selected and presented on January 18th and 19th at the Elysée Palace in Paris. With exhibits like an artificial heart or a portable solar base-station, the GALLET F1XF fire helmet from MSA was in good company.
The MSA team was proud and honoured to see their iconic helmet and the Châtillon factory be represented as the Capital of hearts for fire helmets. The exhibition at the Elysée Palace was mainly aimed at promoting the significant efforts made by French companies or affiliates to produce locally in order to support their national economy and to combat against climate change.
Some MSA associates from the Châtillon plant were able to attend the exhibition amongst the 10,000 visitors, which was a unique opportunity to visit the Elysée Palace in Paris, one of the most beautiful and representative buildings of the French Nation.
