LIVONIA, Mich.—In response to growing demand, engineering group Segula Technologies is strengthening its presence in the United States, where it has reportedly doubled its business volume in just one year. Emphasizing its commitment to supporting manufacturers in their quest for state-of-the-art production infrastructures, Segula created a division dedicated to the design and commissioning of automated and robotized production lines, the company said in a release.

In the automotive sector, Segula Technologies plays a key role in supporting major automakers and OEMs in vehicle design, particularly in the transition to electric mobility. Its current projects are reported to include the integration of battery packs into vehicles or the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

In the aerospace sector, Segula Technologies U.S. provides essential technical and human resources for aircraft manufacturing, having recently signed contracts with Bombardier, Daher, Airbus, and Airbus Atlantic.

“As an engineering company present all over the world and active in several industries, we are able to build bridges between sectors and countries,” said Xavier Chapuy, CEO of Segula Technologies U.S., in the release. “As a result, we can offer high-quality, competitively-priced services, while enabling manufacturers in different sectors to benefit from best practices tailored to their needs.”

Segula Technologies is now deploying its Tooling Automation Systems (TAS) division in the United States to meet the growing demand for modernization of production facilities. Specializing in the design and commissioning of automated production lines, this division strengthens Segula’s process engineering offering in the United States, the company said.

“With 400 employees in Europe, we are the market leader for integrators for automakers and automotive suppliers,” said Jean-Yves Beguin, director of the Segula’s TAS division, in the releasee. “We decided to set up our division in the United States because we felt that our plant design offering matched the needs of the local market. By expanding our activities, we hope to support American manufacturers in their industrial transformation.”

Segula U.S. plans to gradually expand its customer portfolio by working with other leading automakers, new industry players, and Tier 1 OEMs. The engineering group, already present in Michigan, Kansas, North Carolina, Ohio, and California, also plans to open new offices to extend its geographical coverage. Segula U.S. is recruiting 400 positions for engineers, technicians, and skilled workers, according to the release.
