Assystem rebrands to Expleo, creating 30 jobs in £1.3m NI investment

  • Tech company Assystem Technologies and its affiliates have relaunched under a new brand as Expleo, a move that includes a £1.3m investment and will create 30 new jobs.

    Assystem's rebrand to Expleo has come 18 months after Assystem SA’s Global Product Solution division was taken over and following a series of acquisitions in 2018 including SQS. Expleo offers access to sector specific expertise and best practice across consultancy and business agility, product design, production and in service support and well as continuous quality provisions.

    "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," explained Olivier Aldrin, CEO of Expleo.

    Expleo is aiming to grow organically in the coming years, with plans to expand in Germany, North America and India. The company aims to double the workforce to reach more than 5,000 staff worldwide over the next several years, and some of that growth is happening in Northern Ireland.

    An investment of £1.3 million is being made in Northern Ireland to create around 30 new jobs in Digital Labs located at the science park in Belfast, in addition to 120 new jobs in Dublin. Hiring for the new roles has already began happening, with the company seeking robotic experts, quality engineering, DevOps, project management and business agility.

    "We are delighted to become Expleo today and to mark the beginning of this exciting new chapter with jobs and investment in Northern Ireland. We have a wealth of incredibly talented and educated people in Northern Ireland and they will be key to our future growth and success. There is a rich digital ecosystem within the island of Ireland and we look forward to becoming an even greater driving force at the heart of it," commented Rob McConnell, Director and Global Head of Digital Labs, Expleo.
