French President Emmanuel Macron has visited an ailing Whirlpool dryer factory in northern France that was a symbol of the battle for jobs during the presidential campaign.
The factory in Amiens was taken over in September by a local industry group that promised to maintain most of the jobs.
Macron on Tuesday welcomed the "good news" and met with employees in a relaxed atmosphere.
He told reporters: "We must make the French territory more attractive" to investors.
