The company was formed by 4 people, in 1990, under the name of Cira Concept, and initially specialised in automatic control systems and production control systems. Cira Concept has been through several organic development phases, and also phases of external expansion.
Three of the original founders (Philippe Lanoir, Laurent Perrin and Jean-François Aznar) are still directors of the company, which consolidated its growth to become Ekium, in 2008.
Ekium’s management is now seeking to strengthen the company’s international positioning, and to continue its expansion by covering additional activities and/or geographical regions.
