tpgroup opens French office to support European growth
tpgroup is delighted to announce our new office in France: tpgroup Sapienza France. The office is based in Toulouse, one of the main European aerospace hubs, and is close to many of our French customers.
The business will focus on strengthening tpgroup’s offering within the Space, Defence and Energy sectors. This includes its consulting expertise on enterprise transformation and programme delivery and support; using advancing digital technology to develop solutions for complex problems; and developing innovative engineering solutions for mission-critical equipment and systems.
tpgroup currently provides market-leading life-support systems for navies across the world; delivers high performance thermal solutions across industries; manages high value programmes for a number of governments and global Space and Defence focused organisations; uses artificial intelligence to optimise resources within the energy sector; and is developing renewable energy systems to help organisations meet climate targets.
The French operation will be headed up by Michel Austruy, the in-country Managing Director, who brings huge experience from the CNES, Thales Alenia Space, Vega and Telespazio France.
Said Michel: “Our new operational base offers the exciting opportunity to bring tpgroup’s market leading technology and services to a broader European customer base.
“The current environment is clearly challenging but I believe that the breadth of our capability, coupled with continuous innovation and bespoke solutions, will support our customers to stay ahead of the curve and meet whatever challenges lie ahead – from optimising their operations and helping them to make better decisions faster through to reducing their carbon footprint.”
