INNOVATION: A GROWTH LEVER

The ambition of the ECA Group is to always be at the forefront of innovation. Today, our R&T teams are imagining robotics systems for the year 2020, to meet our customers' needs even more efficiently.

The ECA Group is developing a research programme focusing on a number of ambitious and promising themes relating to the "robotics systems" of the future:

  • Simplification of mission management
  • Greater decision-making autonomy
  • Precision of navigation
  • Better cooperation between robots.

Year after year, this programme is going to improve the capacities and performance of all the robotics solutions the group offers its customers.

AN INTERNATIONAL PLAYER

The ECA Group is present all around the world; more than 50% of its turnover is generated by exports. The success of ECA Group's export solutions is largely due to continuous development of reliable and innovative solutions designed for markets that make intensive use of technology: aerospace, defence, energy, maritime, offshore, etc.

The ECA Group is able to offer its customers truly local support, thanks to its organisational structure and sales network, represented by:

  • a worldwide network of dealers and distributors,
  • expertise of its teams in the fields of simulation and training,
  • responsiveness of the support teams,
  • support for products throughout their service life.

FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE & SOLIDITY

In 1992 the ECA Group became a subsidiary of the GORGE Group, a technological and industrial company listed on the stock market, whose independence is guaranteed by the stability of its family-owned majority shareholding structure. The purpose of the Group is to guarantee complete protection and safety for its customers, and deliver a faultless industrial service. Since it is the majority shareholder of ECA, the GORGE Group ensures it remains independent.

By entering the stock market in 2003, the ECA Group was able to strengthen its financial solidity and finance the acquisition of new companies, a key component of its growth. The ECA Group was able to bring together different skills and technologies by acquiring companies specialised in their respective fields: robotics, automated systems, simulation, image acquisition and processing software.
