Our strategy

Seizing the opportunity for growth from a shifting mobility sector: AKKA presents its CLEAR 2022 Strategic Plan.

“The first half of 2018 reflects the impetus of CLEAR 2022. The strategic plan we launched at the start of the year is boosting our growth momentum and further improving our margins. This, in addition to the launch of The AKKADEMY and our diversification in aerospace with the acquisition of PDS Tech in the United States, have put the Group on track for a new phase of growth, and illustrate our ambition to double in size within five years and capture growth generated by the digital revolution.”
