Our Group has a positioning of its own and a DNA driven by a passion for technology with a clear vision of its strategic challenges. This unique positioning, we have built throughout the Group’s history with a dynamic market conquest approach and the implementation of our well-balanced strategy. It results in a global offering with high added value which we continue to evolve through strategic acquisitions, our internal research center or our European AKKA Institut training center.
We know how to address our customers with specific engagement models tailored to their needs and maturity. Today, over 60% of our activities are for turn-key projects that our teams perform in our centers of excellence. After 30 years, we have laid a solid foundation for an innovative and efficient business.
Today we are embarking on our transformation plan PACT 17 to fully unleash the potential of our differentiating strengths and crank up our development. Our strategic plan aims to boost organic growth via proximity regional development and a turnkey solution offering supported by our competence centers. It will also bolster our ability to achieve global and transnational projects, building on innovation, our centers of excellence, our global offer, and the talent of our 13,250 engineers present in 20 countries.
We will complement this organic growth with strategic external growth of our core business supported by our healthy balance sheet and cash flow. We are proud of the technological support we provide to our customers and the dedication of our men and women that makes us confident in our future.
"Our commitment is part of a policy of ongoing improvement. Three main beliefs guide our approach to our responsibility: respect for human rights and business ethics in all of our organisations; our ability to create a respectful, nurturing working environment to encourage the development of skills and innovation; our commitment to ongoing improvement to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment."
