Each partner brought complementary profiles and skills: Jean Claude Scardigli with sales and an elastomeric technical background, and Celine Laget with international know-how and managerial skills. Their converging ideas, along with a willingness to create a company that reflected their personalities and countless ambition, allowed the two partners launched their company’s journey. The idea was to propose elastomeric engineering solutions and qualitative high-tech products. STERNE was a solution provider, an intermediary between the customer’s need and the manufacture.
Creation of the Sterne company.
It is in May 1996 that Sterne started as a sealing consultancy activity with an intermediary position between the customer’s need and the manufacture. Rapidly, Sterne decided to manufacture its own products and to integrate production-focused silicone lines, particularly in the medical device market, where demand was growing.
