With this alliance, Exail becomes a global high-tech industrial champion specializing in cutting-edge robotics, maritime, navigation, aerospace and photonics technologies. Combining complementary technological expertise and geographical footprint with a strong legacy of innovation, Exail provides its global base of customers with cutting-edge in-house manufactured technologies ranging from components and sensors to products and complex systems.

Finalizing this alliance between ECA Group and iXblue around a shared brand is strategic for Fabien Napolitano, CEO of iXblue: "Joining forces under a joint brand allows us to become a major global player capable of addressing new and larger markets, but also to federate our 1500 employees around the same banner. Together, we will keep pushing back the frontiers of science to take our technological excellence to new heights. The new synergies created with Exail open up unlimited prospects for the development of new products and systems that will continue to push back technological limits and expand our customers capabilities.

For Dominique Giannoni, CEO of ECA Group, this new joint brand will help respond to the major challenges of our time: “Our world is facing many challenges, whether they are security, environmental or societal. At Exail, we are convinced that the development of disruptive technologies will enable us to rise to these new challenges. By mastering cutting-edge technologies, we are at the heart of our clients' most complex missions. Whatever the environment, our robust components, products and systems will provide them with the utmost performance, reliability and safety, while our global team will support them as they face the most complex challenges, from the deep sea to outer space. Together, we will continue to create innovative solutions that help explore new territories, and we look forward to continuing to serve our customers and partners with our new enlarged offer.”
