On 9 June, in the presence of French Ambassador Catherine Colonna, Artelia Italia received the 2015 Trophy for French Investment in Italy. This prize awarded by the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry recognises our Group’s acquisition of the Italian engineering firm Intertecno in January this year.
Despite a challenging economic environment, Artelia once again presented robust results in 2014, which encourages us to pursue our international development, including through external growth operations.
Intertecno is one of Italy’s leading engineering, project management and technical consultancy firms in the building construction, tertiary and industrial sectors. This acquisition brings new skills to Artelia in building engineering and strengthens our presence in northern Italy.  It likewise consolidates our position in Italy and reaffirms Artelia’s ability to attract leading companies to a major European engineering group.
In this edition for the month of July, we provide you with a detailed insight into Artelia’s activities in Italy. This is also the first issue of the new version of Artelia News: shorter and more frequent, this newsletter remains the ideal way to stay informed of the latest happenings of our Group!
Enjoy your reading!
