The Industrial Division, a pillar of innovation for Decathlon
At Decathlon, innovations are born of observing customers and the passion of the company’s employees.
Created in 1996, the Industrial Division consists of more than 500 people working at Decathlon hQ in villeneuve d’Ascq, and around 2,100 people working in different production countries.
In order to provide the Passion brands with efficient components and production solutions, the Industrial Division is divided into industrial processes.
In our villeneuve d’Ascq headquarters (France), more than 3,000 prototypes are made every year. Our prototype workshops are available for teams to observe the behaviour and test the components of finished products. They help speed up the design process and enable employees to play an active role in creating innovations at the best price/quality ratio.
