Assystem Technologies and its affiliates have relaunch under a new brand. 18 months after taking over the operations of Assystem SA’s Global Product Solutions division, and following a series of acquisitions in 2018 including SQS – an industry leading quality partner for digital business with a 500 people-strong presence in Ireland, the organisation becomes Expleo.

To help businesses harness technological change, Expleo offers access to sector- specific expertise and best practice across consultancy and business agility, product design, production and in-service support, as well as continuous quality. This unmatched service portfolio reflects the changing needs of the market where engineering and software are becoming increasingly intertwined.

Winning the technology race

Technology is changing all legacy business models, across industries and geographies. All companies are becoming technology-enabled businesses. The coming decade will see an unparalleled pace and scope of business transformation driven by technological change, bringing both uncertainty and opportunity.

Olivier Aldrin, CEO of Expleo, stated: “All businesses are in a technology race. They need to transform their operating model by securing access to both leading-edge technologies and deep industry knowledge. We have made a bold move to help our clients win this race by becoming Expleo, a new breed of technology partner that offers end-to-end, integrated engineering, quality services and management consulting for digital transformation. Our new brand reflects our ambition to be the trusted partner that our clients need to rapidly deliver innovation at scale.”

Ambitious growth perspectives for Ireland and beyond

A truly global company with 15,000 people in more than 25 countries, Expleo leverages complementary cultures rooted in strong Franco-German ties. It combines a scalable and cost-effective global delivery model connecting clients with experts locally and from bestshore excellence centres.

Expleo’s ambition is to pursue its growth organically and through acquisitions. The Group plans to further expand its footprint, notably in Germany, North America and India. In India, Expleo aims to quickly double in size, and reach more than 5,000 employees in the next few years.

Leveraging SQS Ireland’s established track record as trusted quality partner for the end-to-end delivery of businesses’ digital projects, Expleo Ireland will focus on the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, aerospace and automobile industries as key growth areas in the future.

In order to seize these opportunities, Expleo Ireland will invest €8 million in its workforce and create 120 new jobs in Dublin and 30 jobs in the company’s Digital Labs in Belfast. Hiring for the roles has now begun, with the company seeking experts in robotics, quality engineering, DevOps, project management and business agility.

Phil Codd, Managing Director, Expleo Ireland, said: “We are very excited to become Expleo, which marks the start of a bold new chapter for the company across the island of Ireland. The key to this will be – and always has been – our people. We have a rich digital ecosystem in Ireland and we plan to be an even greater driving force at the heart of that ecosystem, reinforcing Ireland’s position as a major player in the global digital economy.”

Mary Buckley, Executive Director, IDA Ireland, commented: “Europe is an important market for IDA Ireland in terms of foreign direct investment and Expleo’s continued investment in Dublin is a strong reflection of the thriving technology sector here. The announcement by Expleo will provide excellent career opportunities for talented technology professionals and graduates alike.”
