PARIS --(Business Wire)--
Group (Paris:ESI (News - Alert)), pioneer and world-leading solution
provider in Virtual Prototyping, is the winner of the "Grand Prix des
Entreprises de Croissance" in the "Software and IT Services" category
for companies with a turnover of between €100 million and €1 billion.
The "Grand Prix des Entreprises de Croissance", organised in partnership
with Leaders League, the French Ministry of the Economy and Finance, the
French business federation Medef and public investment bank Bpifrance,
is awarded to French companies that have achieved outstanding growth in
the previous three years (2010-2012). During this period, ESI Group's
turnover rose on average by 13.2% a year.
Apart from the basic growth requirement, the award was based on a
thorough examination of six criteria demonstrating the excellence of ESI
Group over the long term, namely:
Sustainability and profitability: the market leader in virtual
prototyping for over 40 years, ESI Group has established a loyal
customer base with a high level of repeat business, giving it a solid
business platform and financial position.
Job creation: during the period, a surge in business for ESI
Group led to the recruitment of some 200 employees, taking the Group's
workforce to over 1,000 experts in over 40 countries today.
Corporate social responsibility: this aspect lies at the very
heart of the Group's values and, in essence, its business, which seeks
to eliminate physical prototypes and accelerate the development of
innovative, more environmentally friendly products. ESI's solutions
therefore reduce the environmental impact of industry.
Leadership and collaborative management: the Company's internal
organisation is designed to empower managers and employees, as well as
encouraging global teamwork.
Innovation: for 40 years, innovation has been a strategic
priority for the Group. With a dedicated investment policy and a
network of high-level technology partnerships, ESI is driving the pace
of industrial innovation across all sectors.
Development and growth potential: ESI's virtual prototyping
solutions are essential for accelerating the innovation and
development of new products and they therefore have significant growth
potential in many industry verticals that are not yet mature enough
for this disruptive technology.
Alain de Rouvray, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ESI Group,
said: "This award is a valuable testimony to the excellence shown by
ESI Group teams worldwide over more than 40 years. With its increasingly
innovative virtual prtotyping solutions, the Group has made a global
name for itself due to its vitality and technological expertise, through
which it has helped to secure the long-term industrial leadership of its
customers. The award also recognises the Group's ambition to usher in
the ICT based fourth industrial revolution, fostering a more efficient
economy through disruptive productivity gains and a more engaged social
responsibility. Given the quality of the candidates and the elite
selection process, being chosen for the first edition of this brand new
award is not only an honour for the Group, but it also sends out a
strong signal that spurs on our indomitable quest for excellence."
