Vincent Poirier, consultant NovaProject, specialist in ceramics and materials industries for thirty years.

Small or large company, I listen attentively to my clients describe to me the project that is close to their heart.

I accompany them with a unique value proposition: not only do I determine what to do, but I do. I advise and realize.



Companies concerned by ceramics ask me to study their economic model with them. The objective: to optimize their strategy to better develop themselves in a sector where I know how it works.


New ceramic products and services, production lines or industrial units, innovation: I bring my expertise and I work in the study, design and development.

Industrial Performance

I am implementing the improvement methodologies adapted to the context of the ceramic industries. I am involved in industrial optimization, always attentive to the human dimension.


As a logical follow-up to the development of their "ceramic" business model, my clients ask me to support them in prospecting for new business.

I created NovaProject in 2015 with the idea of carrying out "positive" projects and the desire to contribute to the development of companies related to ceramics. At one point in my career, I wanted to share my skills and experience in this area. Today, I am happy to help business leaders carry out their projects by dedicating my time and expertise to them.


My expertise is based on an eclectic background in technical and traditional ceramics. VP R&D or head of industrial company: I have met the problems submitted by my clients.


I adjust my solutions in accordance with the culture of the company and its teams. The mission principles require me to be very agile.


I accompany on short or long missions. I develop a "tailor-made" intervention for each client: creation, transformation, development of activities...


I am at the beginning of the project as at its finalization. Not just advice, but the concrete realization of solutions.

Happy customers

"It's always a pleasure to share your passion together. This training, very theoretical in the first place, allowed us to understand during the second day, the difficulties of setting up a ceramic production with the associated parameters. Your way of looking for solutions to problems gives a playful approach and was much appreciated by the whole team. Thanks to you"

Franck POTISLAVOWSKI, Head of Engineering Offer & Supply Chain at Kingfisher / Product Design, January 2020

"Vincent POIRIER has enabled Ecotech Ceram to enter the ceramic market in a structured way and to sell its first ECOSTOCK system. I sincerely thank him for that. I really appreciate his ability to listen and understand, both technically and strategically. He was able to effectively grasp our needs and guide the roadmap of Ecotech Ceram's development in the field of ceramics. It's also Vincent's human qualities that make me love working with him. We can trust him. With great hindsight, he bought into the sense of my company. He knows how to be patient or on the contrary direct, depending on what is at stake. But always with a willingness to help me. »

Antoine MEFFRE, President and founder of Ecotech Ceram, October 2019

"Vincent POIRIER understood our situation in a short period of time and was able to take a rigorous and complete expert look at our industrial operations in order to validate and adjust our strategic plan."

Yves de TALHOUËT, President of Faïencerie de Gien, June 2019

Vincent POIRIER expressed in his interventions a spirit of analysis and a remarkable ability to adapt to the individuals and subjects. He is an excellent creator of links in the context of missions entrusted during periods of strong growth and he has contributed to and helped this transition. Let him be thanked. »

"In a strategic mission for the Pôle Européen de la Céramique, Vincent has been able to develop an efficient business model to federate and expand the Occitanie area of the Pôle Européen de la Céramique. He has put a lot of creativity into the solutions he has developed (e.g. "OCCIgène" Meetings!) and has been personally involved in their realization. He did an excellent job, marked by a successful relay pass to the Occitanie area manager he accompanied. I appreciate his great ability to listen, his supportive sense of relational, the recognition he has in the ceramics industry and his ability to intervene in both expertise and action. "

"Very good synthesis and great listening"

Richard GAIGNON, CEO, 3DCeram, September 2016.

"Thank you again for your efficiency"

Romain EPHERRE, CEO, NORIMAT April 2016

In the solutions that I implement, I appeal to countless situations lived personally. I'm constantly updating my knowledge. My clients rely on a recognized expert of ceramic industries and qualified by his background.

My background is varied, solidly centred on ceramics, but rich in experiences "outside the box". This originality allows me to benefit from a technical open-mindedness and an intellectual agility that are probably uncommon. I thus respond to my client's needs without preconceived ideas, with a great capacity toadapt.

I manage each of my missions in project mode. This methodology involves listening attentively to the needs of my client. I then carry out a personalized definition of his project and my modus operandi. Each of my interventions is tailor- made.  

By entrusting me with a mission, my clients outsource the realization of their projects.  My intervention therefore represents a new resource for them to solve a specific problem requiring great expertise. They're recovering time for them.


I'm listening to you!
