about

APF ENTREPRISES

France Handicap

APF France Handicap, formerly known as the Association des Paralysés de France, created in 1933, is a national movement for the defense and representation of people with motor disabilities with or without associated disorders and their families.

An historic force in the adapted and protected sector, APF Entreprises, the companies red, focuses its HR policy and service offer on its fundamental mission: to guarantee the sustainable social and professional integration of people with disabilities.


The red welcomes more than 4,200 people, 90% of whom are disabled, and offers some thirty activities in response to the professionalization needs of its employees and clients.

The association has more than 1000 m2 dedicated to training in the gestures of fine leather goods in Evreux, and therefore a 100% French and supportive workforce.

 

 

As part of this program, the leather goods space at La Caserne will be entirely managed by APF Entreprises. It will welcome brands wishing to produce in a more responsible manner, who will be able to present their products in a dedicated showroom.

 

Are you a fashion or design brand looking to embrace a more eco-friendly business model?

 

Do you understand the importance of reducing the sector’s environmental impact and want to become an industry leader?

 

Apply and join the movement as a resident at La Caserne!
