  Arthur D. Little acquires Cutter Consortium and Presans to expand open consulting capabilities  

This issue : Future of PRESANS


When I founded Presans 10 years ago - I was then a researcher at École Polytechnique - Presans mobilized the best experts in the world mainly to help its clients solve complex technical problems. In recent years, we have been called upon to intervene more and more on projects at the crossroads of strategy consulting and scientific and technical expertise.

The time had therefore come to strengthen our operation.

Among the global consulting firms, Arthur D. Little, founded by the eponymous MIT chemist in 1886, is the one we felt closest to, in terms of culture (very entrepreneurial), DNA (importance of science and technology) and industrial sectors.

Today, the Presans team and I are very pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Presans by Arthur D. Little. This is great news for the world of industrial innovation. Together, with increased energy and geographic reach, we will continue to use  technological innovation as a way of leveraging the transformative and resiliency potential of businesses and industrial ecosystems.

This acquisition is a source of pride for Presans. It validates our choice to build a consulting platform focused on scientific and technical expertise, capable of anticipating future transformations with a strong grounding in the realities of the world of industrial innovation.

One thing will not change at Presans: the entrepreneurial culture, oriented towards results for our clients. We will continue to be guided by excellence and impertinence, while making our own the ADL motto: "who said we couldn't do it?”.
