The fifth generation did not include Théodore, and it was Laurent, the fourth child in the family, who was to take the company into the 21st century.
Back, as it were, to basics, it was first at the French School of Milling that Laurent discovered the world of MORILLON’s customers. At the same time, the first MORILLON extractors were beginning to spread the name of Morillon throughout France, and even on the international scene.
It was at Veghel, in the Netherlands, that MORILLON’s first important product was installed, in the largest Animal feed factory in Europe at that time (CEHAVE). With his father, Laurent reaped the benefit of the experience of the first MORILLON representatives in Europe, Mr Van Dugteren in the Netherlands and Mr Paleologos in Greece. The Route du May plant had gone computerized in 1984 with the purchase of a WANG microcomputer to manage the parts lists and the introductory ranges.
With the help of an internationally-oriented development firm, MORILLON gradually built up its marketing network, mainly in England, Italy and Germany.
At the beginning of the 1990’s, MITSUBISHI France recognized MORILLON’s experience and expertise and requested an initial presentation in Japan. Its success was immediate, and some thirty extractors were soon installed in the Japanese vegetable oil factories.
In 1984, when Laurent joined the company, he was the only person able to conduct a conversation in English. Today, over a third of MORILLON’s personnel speak English, a sign of the major changes at MORILLON during this latter period.
In 2005, a dozen personnel played a leading part in enhancing MORILLON’s reputation both in Europe and worldwide.
