About Altran

Altran is the largest independent Engineering Service Provider (ESP) in the world, reporting €2,1 billion revenues in 2016 with the ambition to grow to €3 billion by 2020. About 90% of Altran’s 30.000 employees have a master degree in engineering. To sustain and expand that capacity we are still actively hiring new employees around the world, including Belgium.

Altran originated out of the aerospace sector from where it diversified to most other sectors. Today approximately 25% of our revenues are still in that sector, with most of that in the supply chain of Airbus. Altran is presently one of its main product development partners, and as such has major design bureaus situated near to Airbus’s main hubs. These design bureau services are also available in Belgium through Altran’s offices in Brussels, Gent and Leuven.

In Belgium, most sizeable aerospace companies already use Altran services. The total workforce in Belgium is around 800 FTE’s.

Whilst many know Altran primarily for its Engineering Services, it is less known that Altran is also a very capable partner for innovative product development and transformational outsourcing. For the latter we continue to strengthen our present “GlobalShore” centres in India, Portugal, Morocco and Romania supported by a network of local front offices. Supporting these services, Altran continuous to establish World Class Centres(WCC) around the globe, each specialised in a particular domain.

As part of our strategy for 2016-2020, Altran also wants to strengthen and expand its present business consulting capabilities, aiming to become a world leader in the innovation & research segment of the product lifecycle.
