We might not realise it but we are currently experiencing the most rapid period of technological change in history. We have undergone several ‘industrial revolutions’ – mechanisation in the 1780s, mass production in the 1870s and automation in the 1960s – to enter a new age of connectivity, where systems and devices communicate with each other. We call it the digital revolution.
At the same time, another revolution – the energy revolution – is transforming the way we power the world around us. Dependency on coal and gas is decreasing as we look to greener and more sustainable sources of energy such as solar and wind for the sake of our planet.
Our purpose at VINCI Energies UK & RoI is to deliver the promises of these revolutions. We do it by bringing together expert teams and empowering them to reach their full potential.
A community of incredible people
A company is only as strong as its employees. That is why we seek out talented people who share our vision for a better and more connected future and are enthusiastic about bringing it to life. Our employees at VINCI Energies UK & RoI are creative and dedicated but also collaborative, happy to share time, resources and knowledge that will drive efficiencies and deliver better solutions. It is precisely this culture of openness and sharing that generates true community spirit among ourselves and our clients.
Autonomy, flexibility and agility
The right people also need the right structure to support them. In the UK and Ireland our 28 business units operate within three broad business lines – industry, infrastructure and ICT. Our business model grants teams the autonomy they need to act as entrepreneurs, making them agile and proactive to clients’ changing needs, while allowing them to drive innovation and become industry leaders within their respective sectors. It is a huge draw for customers and talented engineers alike.
When solving customers’ challenges, we can approach them as one business unit or pool our diverse knowledge and skills. This is where the strength of our group reaches its pinnacle. No other player in our current market can combine expertise from across the industrial, energy infrastructure and ICT sectors to provide such a holistic approach.
Greater than the sum of our parts
If a manufacturing client wanted to upgrade its plant, for example, we might first deploy our Actemium brand to improve production processes through automation. After this, we could implement renewable energy generation and storage solutions, such as solar panels coupled with an energy storage unit, through our Omexom brand to make the plant more energy efficient and environmental. Finally, our Axians brand could provide cyber security solutions, as well as reliability of internet speed for the whole site.
It is a mighty combination. United by a common purpose, we are a community of incredible people, empowered to deliver the promises of the digital and energy revolutions.
