This financial performance paves the way for new ambitions for 2024, when X-PM expects to achieve substantial growth exceeding 30% over the previous year. This ambitious target is a faithful reflection of the positive momentum generated by the company’s recent strategic initiatives, underlining the tremendous potential for development under Bernard Etchenagucia’s skilful leadership.
