Since its founding in March 2010, Artelia has been pursuing a triple ambition:
· meeting your new demands for integrated, multi-disciplinary services,
· addressing your specific challenges on large-scale projects,
· supporting you even more effectively as you develop your international business.
Over the last four years, numerous achievements have underscored the relevance of this ambition. Artelia has launched “Hospitality”, its range of customised services for major hotel operators, and is currently overseeing the refurbishment of the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris. In the Oil & Gas sector, Artelia is helping the major distributors rebrand and modernise their networks of service stations across Europe. In the area of transportation, last year Artelia won the contract to provide project management services for the Grand Paris Express driverless metro on behalf of Société du Grand Paris, thereby strengthening its position in the transportation engineering field (infrastructure and systems). Lastly, the teams from Secoa and Quadric, two firms specialising in civil engineering structures, joined the group in 2013; we now have over 100 in-house experts in this field.
Each year more and more of you choose Artelia as your partner for consultancy, engineering or project management services, in France and around the world. Thanks to your loyalty, we have seen our business grow steadily over the past four years (+22%), most notably at a rate of 5% in 2013.
In my capacity as the group’s new CEO, I intend to sustain this dynamic growth and boost it even further. It is underpinned by technical excellence, attentiveness and proximity to you, exacting standards in our everyday tasks, and the commitment of our 3200 employees to meet your needs. My ambition is simple: consolidating Artelia’s position as France’s leading independent engineering company to serve you better.
Thank you for the trust you have placed in our group. I hope you enjoy this edition of Artelia News!
