ESI Group (ISIN FR0004110310), a pioneer and leader in virtual prototyping and manufacturing solutions, today announces that it is expanding into Tunisia with the creation of a ‘near-shore’ services division dedicated to high value-added projects.

This center of competency, which employs a young team of engineers, including graduates from best Tunisian institutes (ex. Tunisia Polytechnic School) and supervised by our national experts, offers extensive expertise in solutions developed by ESI Group for the delivery of projects with high technical content.

This new regional foothold is part of the Group’s growth strategy, which is based on:

  • The growing importance of Services, as highlighted by the increasing demand from industrial groups for support services to set up Simulation Based Design integrated solutions, and the interest shown by new players in virtual prototyping.
  • The development of centers of competency in economically attractive countries that also offer a high level of education in science and engineering.

Through this new location, ESI Group is also strengthening its strategic partnership with the Tunisian firm Acoustica. Initially positioned in vibro-acoustics, this well recognized engineering and consulting firm is specialized in noise reduction and digital simulation projects.

This strategic partnership aims to:

  • Facilitate recruitment of experienced engineers who can be operational immediately,
  • Use the market understanding and expertise of a local player to build a foothold in a Mediterranean country that can provide high-end services at very competitive prices.

Lech Tomasz Kisielewicz, Executive Vice-President of ‘Services’ Operations of ESI Group, comments: “We are very happy to announce today the extension of our multi-shore coverage with the opening of a new center of competency close to Europe specializing in high value-added projects. We are also strengthening our strategic partnership with Acoustica. Through this new foothold, we will meet the growth in demand for our Services, in the best interests of our clients, while maintaining a continuous control on our cost structure.”
