Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Paris, Groupe Artemys is an independent French digital transformation services provider with more than 600 employees, specialized in the management and evolution of information systems.

Backed by Andera Partners since its minority investment in October 2020, the group has seen strong organic growth on both its historical business lines and through new initiatives (software engineering, BI & Big Data, Modern Worplace).

The acquisition of AJS Formation marks the pursuit of Groupe Artemys' buy-and-build strategy. It will be shortly followed by another bolt-on acquisition in Europe, yet to be announced.

This strategic acquisition will enable the group to launch Artemys Academy, a new B2B training offer for its blue-chip clients, as well as to propose training services to its own employees, while leveraging AJS' strong expertise in B2C professional training.
