Cap Engineering founder
Shares his knowledge with his customers on a daily basis.

His expertise? It has been built through 30 years of experience with heat exchangers.

He started his career in the early 80’s with Barriquand, the famous PLATULAR welded plate heat exchanger inventor. He then decided to create his own company, KAPP France, in the 90’s: creation of thermal and mechanical engineering tools, production facilities, instrumental in the drive to expand the product line by adding more types of heat exchangers and having the largest portfolio of complementary technologies (Shell and tube HE, welded and gasketed PHE, Spiral HE).

In order to secure the future and boost his company’s international development, he sold it to the MERSEN group in 2006 and remained a product manager for 5 years, supporting international sales through the MERSEN organisation.

Today, with 5 patents and as an HTRI member, he is recognized as an expert able to understand your needs and to propose efficient solutions.
