The Group in brief

Exail Technologies is a leading high-tech industrial champion imbued with a strong entrepreneurial culture. We operate through our unique subsidiary Exail, formed by the combination of iXblue, acquired in 2022, and ECA Group, part of the group since 1992.

The rapprochement of the two companies, sharing a common DNA of entrepreneurship, is strengthening our capacity for innovation by leveraging complementary technological expertise. Animated by our pioneering spirit, we will keep creating disruptive technologies by observing and anticipating our clients’ needs.

As a family-owned company led by Raphaël Gorgé, Exail Technologies takes a long-term view of value creation. This creates the solid foundation for a culture of innovation and the capacity to keep pushing back the frontiers of science and take our technological excellence to new heights.
