Supporting the main aeronautics and space centres in France

ESI Group, a leading innovator in virtual prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries, has opened a new office in Colomiers near Toulouse, France. Following the strengthening of its presence in the Silicon Valley (USA), the group now expands in the South West of France, reflecting its growing presence in the aeronautics industry.

Present in France since its creation, ESI Group continues its expansion in the country by opening this seventh office, adding to those near Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon and Nantes. ESI is continuing to amplify its business in France, making strategic investments including opening the new office to be close to important aeronautics and space industry sector key players.

A strategic hub for France and Europe, the Toulouse region houses the headquarters of major OEMs and suppliers in the aeronautics and space sectors, including Airbus, ATR, Thales Alenia Space, Latécoère, Stelia Aerospace and also Safran, Daher, Ratier Figeac and Figeac Aero. The region also welcomes many engineering and services companies and provides 40 per cent of the French aerospace workforce. Main aeronautics and space R&D centres are located in the South West, where there is also a strong research and education network.

While strengthening its links with the South-Western ecosystem from its new site, ESI France will provide demonstrations and ensure the commercialisation of its latest solutions including virtual reality with ESI IC.IDO. The team in Toulouse will also support clients and amplify the group’s commercial relations with aerospace and space OEMs, building on the numerous research & technology (R&T) projects already on-going, specifically in the field of simulation of manufacturing processes.
