A sustainable company
In the interest of shareholders, we’ve established a clear course of action for the year ahead. It can be summarized in five key points.
Maintaining our financial independence
Onet’s long-term development strategy is built around a strong desire to remain independent. We believe that our company’s result will create opportunities for future growth. Financial independence gives us the freedom to take new projects while staying true to our values.
Consolidating our positions in France and abroad
In order to consolidate operations, we need to strengthen our market positions, increase volume and continue to develop sector-specific expertise and technical strengths. This may involve expanding into new areas to improve position on the value chain in certain strategic client sectors, while at the same time eetaining our core businesses.
Upholding the true meaning of “service”
We’ve been a service company from the very beginning. Our aim is to provide innovative solutions for clients, drawing from our experience in different sectors and our unique third-party perspective. Every day represents a new opportunity for the Onet team to provide outstanding service for our clients.
Striving for excellence in all of our businesses
We continue to lead the pack in every area of our operations. Client trust and satisfaction are important to us, which is why our team strives to bring value to each project we undertake.
Increasing our social impact
Our group already provides essential services that contribute positively to society as a whole.But we want to establish ourselves as an impact company. In other words, we’d like to be able to track and measure all of our activities in terms of their social, societal and environmental contributions.
A wealth of expertise and diversity
Today, Onet has become an international engineering firm and service provider.
Our group has business locations in 8 countries, with clients in more than 20 countries worldwide.The Onet group’s international approach is both proactive and rational.
Our acquisitions and partnerships reflect a choice to work with people who share our core values. Onet exports its technical know-how and business values while supporting local expertise and culture. Our development at a global level can take many different forms, including project procurement, external growth, local partnerships and joint ventures. The Onet group’s objective is to develop our operations outside France in a significant and sustainable way. This can be achieved by diversifying our services in all areas of expertise.
To achieve this goal, Onet has created a division with a dedicated team that is responsible for international development and operations management.
A dual approach
- To consolidate and develop existing subsidiaries in other countries so that we become recognized as a reference for quality in local markets.
- To develop the group’s activities, through acquisitions and other means, in new countries that have been selected for their growth potential.
- The group offers high-level engineering expertise in countries with plans to invest in necessary infrastructure.
