Who we are
Created in 1979, the SII Group aims to support companies in the integration of new technologies and innovation management methods, to develop their information systems and contribute to the development of their future products or services.
Thanks to our decentralised organisation based on empowerment and the ability to undertake business, the SII Group has deployed on more than 80 sites spread over 4 continents . By relying on our teams of nearly 10,000 engineers worldwide, we offer skills in both Digital Service and Engineering to drive the transformation of many sectors of the economy.
In this market dominated by changing uses, SII is a benchmark player to support these digital developments. Our constant growth shows our commitment to the satisfaction of all our customers, with a sustainable approach.
Passionate about Technology
Beyond our recognised digital skills, the SII Group stands out for its corporate culture that values initiatives and commitment. Our aim is to provide all of our employees with a fulfilling working environment for the development of their skills and careers.
The Great Place To Work label rewards this state of mind and the ability given to everyone to be an actor of SII. Armed with this DNA, we are carriers of the #fungineer spirit which values the engineering profession and its role in a more responsible digital world.
Specialising in industrial IT, Bernard quickly recruits his first employees to honour fixed-price contracts for large groups such as Philips, the French Atomic Energy Commission or Bull
In parallel, our development strategy continues throughout France with the creation of multiple agencies (Rennes, Aix-en-Provence, Nantes, Toulouse, Strasbourg and Lille).
Finally, in 1999, we went public to increase our notoriety. Bernard Huvé, founder and CEO, is the majority shareholder with his family.
To support the growth of the Group, which then exceeded 1,500 people, a new management team was formed in 2007. Bernard Huvé took the head of the supervisory board and entrusted the chairmanship of the Management Board to Eric Matteucci.
The Group is also carrying out external growth operations in France to support its development with, in particular, the acquisition of Feel Europe in 2016 aimed at strengthening our positioning in the banking sector.
In 2019, we are celebrating our 40th anniversary and announcing the strengthening of the Group's “top management” and the creation of a Development Department, to promote the acceleration of the development of the company.
