Altran and frog Strengthen Footprint in Europe

Altran and frog announce the integration of teams in France, Spain and Sweden.

PARIS—Altran, the global leader in engineering and R&D services, and frog, the global design and strategy firm, announce the integration of their teams for innovation and design in France, Spain and Sweden.

Studios in Paris, Madrid, and Malmö will complement existing frog studios in London, Milan, and Munich to extend influence in design and innovation consultancy, doubling the group’s network in Europe.

The integration with Altran also enhances frog’s impressive client portfolio in financial services, healthcare, automotive and telecommunications with expertise in aerospace, energy and industrials.

“In Europe, local market presence and expertise is a critical business advantage. The addition of the three Altran studios with 130 designers doubles frog’s footprint in Europe. Combined with the strengths of the other frog studios in the Americas and Asia, this reinforces frog leadership in transformative design” says Andy Zimmerman, President of frog. 

Pascal Brier, Group Executive Vice-President Strategy, Technology & Innovation of Altran says, “Over five decades, iconic brand frog has come to define excellence in design consulting. Today, Altran expands its footprint in Europe and further develop the group’s capacity to deliver outstanding design to clients.”

Altran acquired Aricent and frog in November 2017 under its strategic plan to elevate its service model and expand its footprint in key industries and geographies. frog’s network also includes studios in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Austin and Shanghai. frog design was founded in 1969, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
