Awakit, the digital communications agency of Gfi Informatique, provides support to the Air Liquide Group with the production of The Big Story, a web documentary dedicated to Air Liquide’s acquisition of Airgas.
With the production of a 30-minute web documentary entitledThe Big Story, Air Liquide wanted to highlight its acquisition of the American company Airgas, which was finalised in under a year. The web documentary, which is cut into seven distinct chapters, takes Internet users behind the scenes of this historic acquisition for Air Liquide.
Through the eyes of the teams involved in the project, we discover the beginnings of the acquisition; the key steps in the process and the added value of such an operation for the Group. Nine days of filming gave twenty-odd people on two continents a chance to speak. Managers and operating staff spoke of this truly human adventure.
“The choice of the documentary format illustrates the exceptional nature of the project and instructively develops the strategic dimension of this acquisition”, explains Tanguy Commault, Director of Awakit.
