Akkodis, part of the Adecco Group, is a global innovation, technology and engineering company, leader in Smart Industry. With more than 50,000 employees in over 30 countries and 40 years of cross-sector experience, it has arrived in València to continue contributing to the process of innovation and digital transformation of industries and the development of solutions to address the most complex global challenges that arise in the current context.
Akkodis’ arrival in València adds to the company’s current presence in seven Spanish cities – Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Pamplona, Seville, Cartagena and Valladolid – where it has more than 1,000 engineers specialising in the application of technology to sectors such as Automotive and Transport, Energy and Sustainability, Information and Communication Technologies, Banking and Aerospace and Defence, among others.
“In an increasingly complex and constantly changing world, complete and complex technological solutions are needed that offer answers to all kinds of challenges and problems. València is a region that fosters technological development and the generation of talent around it, and at Akkodis we are delighted to set up in the city to contribute to this end hand in hand with our multidisciplinary team of technology and engineering experts,” explains Luis Santiago, CEO of Akkodis Spain.
“Innovation is part of Akkodis’ DNA, and we believe it is key to the success of our clients and to the development of the talent of our professionals,” says Emilio Herrero, operations director of Akkodis Spain. “That is why more than 30% of our workforce is dedicated to R&D&I activities to develop cutting-edge technological solutions to help our customers in their innovation processes. We know that in a constantly evolving market our customers need to be one step ahead of the competition, and that is why we have a team of multidisciplinary and highly skilled experts working closely with them to understand their needs and develop customised solutions.”
The councillor for Finance and Economic Sectors, Borja Sanjuan, said that “the establishment in our city of firms of the calibre of Akkodis confirms that Valencia is the place to be, where to create and grow cutting-edge projects“. “We must continue working on the path of public-private collaboration to create new opportunities that generate more and better jobs, so that our city advances as a technological enclave driving the knowledge economy and, in this sense, the work of the Invest in València team is key to attracting new projects such as the one announced today”.
For his part, the President of the Valencia Chamber of Commerce, José Vicente Morata, highlighted the importance of the arrival of this type of international project in Valencia: “Akkodis, an engineering and technology company, is an example of an innovative company, focused on technology, with an open culture and committed to talent. Projects like these are the ones that generate high added value and economic impact in the city. They generate opportunities for talent to stay in Valencia”.
From Invest in Valencia, the director María Escartí, celebrates the arrival of Akkodis in Valencia as “fantastic news that consolidates the city of Valencia as a centre of great attraction for technology companies.
