[en] The paper deals with the territoriality expressed by the employees of a border plant in the
automotive industry: smart in Hambach (Moselle, France). As a branch of the German
group Daimler AG, led by a German director, the plant is an original place where distinct
languages and nationalities coexist. In order to highlight the employees´ attitudes and
representations on the territory, an interdisciplinary methodology has been set up, which
is based on semi-structured interviews and mental maps. The results show different
meanings for territoriality, where national borders are rarely directly expressed, although
they play a structuring role in people´s representations. Three main types of representation
emerge, whether they come from persons having their roots in the region, from
persons with an expatriate profile, or from persons presenting some uncertainty as
regards identity spatial markers.
