As an innovation accelerator for its clients, AKKA supports leading industry players in the automotive, aerospace, rail and life sciences sectors throughout the life cycle of their products with cutting edge digital technologies (AI, ADAS, IoT, Big Data, robotics, embedded computing, machine learning, etc.).

Founded in 1984, AKKA has a strong entrepreneurial culture and is pursuing its fast-paced growth and international development. With 22,000 employees, the Group recorded revenues of €1.8 billion in 2019.

CNP invested in Akka in December 2020 alongside the founding family (Ricci family) through a capital increase in order to strengthen Akka’s balance sheet and support the company’s next growth phase.
CNP and the Ricci family sold their stakes in 2022 to Adecco Group in order to combine Akka with Modis, creating a global smart industry tech leader in the engineering R&D market.
