Altran joins businesses at iHub

Altran, a world leader in engineering and R&D services, is one of the latest hi-tech companies to establish a base at Bondholder Connect Derby's £12m iHub innovation centre.

The company, which employs 45,000 people in over 20 countries across the globe, has taken
two offices at the iHub – the flagship building on Infinity Park.

A pioneer in engineering and R&D services, Altran provides its expertise to key players across the aerospace, automotive, defence, energy, finance, life sciences, railway and telecoms
sectors, amongst others.

The move comes during an exciting point in Altran’s history, following its high-profile
acquisition of digital leader in design and engineering services Aricent.

The high-quality accommodation, services and facilities available at the iHub will enable Altran to continue to expand its footprint in Derby.

Since it was launched last Autumn, the £12m iHub, which has Enterprise Zone status, has attracted a diverse range of businesses such as global aerospace giant Airbus to its 18 traditional office workspaces and 14 ground floor workshops.

Commenting on the company’s arrival at the iHub, Mike Simms, CEO of Altran UK, said: "The iHub is a fantastic facility which is gaining recognition nationally. The location, services and facilities available here will support our provision of high-value engineering expertise to clients in the aerospace, automotive, energy and rail sectors."

Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, said: "Since it was launched last Autumn, the iHub has established a reputation for providing a
supportive and collaborative environment to enable businesses to innovate, grow and develop.

"Altran is a global name and we’re delighted to welcome the team to the iHub innovation centre."
