MCA, Powered by Engineers
From the very beginning, MCA has always thought it was essential to respect those values which have helped the company resist the economic crisis and develop its growth.
To develop human resources:
MCA’s teams recruit collaborators both for their technical competencies and human qualities. Our consultants are the human resources and the real strength of the company. MCA tries hard to encourage the growth and development of its consultants:
MCA is committed to diversity and believes in equity and equality for everyone involved in all activities within the company. Self-development and professional growth are both essential for the current and future success of MCA.
To generate profitability and ensure sustainability:
In order to ensure sustainability, MCA is investing in new areas and activities such as service centers. The main source of investment is MCA’s own profitability. Thus, our financial strength allows us to collaborate with the biggest contractors. MCA is investing in them, consequently generating new opportunities and possibilities for the career development of our employees. Thanks to its rigorous management, MCA is a high-performance company which is investing in major future projects.
To provide the best service with fairness, integrity and to the highest ethical standard:
MCA has completed projects to the highest standards of quality. Extensive assessments are frequently carried out to ensure the improvement and effectiveness of our policies. MCA depends on the excellence and ethics of its teams to make internal and external relationships more transparent.
The sector is undergoing a transformation with new market entrants. To remain competitive, the major automotive groups are investing heavily in R&D, particularly in propulsion, ADAS systems, on-board systems, autonomous and connected vehicles, electric vehicles and the reduction of polluting emissions.
To support all these developments, automobile manufacturers have increased the outsourcing rate of their Research and Development by relying on strategic partners such as MCA.
To respond optimally to these strategic challenges, MCA consultants are engineers with a strong technical dimension. Historical sector of MCA, our customers are the European manufacturers and equipment manufacturers.
The varied skills of our teams enable us to support our industrial customers in all areas of the automotive industry and throughout the entire product life cycle: from design-design to commissioning and testing, to after-sales service (design and implementation of software for testing and maintenance procedures, for example).
The volatility of the market and the increase in Energy needs push the players in the sector to innovate and develop new energies. In parallel, numerous Research and Development projects have been launched in recent years to develop new technologies that respect the environment (wind, solar, biomass, etc.).
In this context, investments have increased to innovate and meet new environmental requirements. Market players are diversifying in the new energy niche and a synergy with other business sectors (automotive, etc.) is taking place. New challenges in recycling and waste management are emerging.
MCA has been referenced by major groups in the energy sector for over 25 years. MCA accompanies its clients on all energy issues and on all phases: preliminary design, design, construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning.
The Group has recognized expertise in conventional energies such as oil, coal, gas and nuclearand is also developing in Thermal and New Energies (wind, solar, biomass...).
The international rail context is increasingly competitive with the rise of new players on the market (China, Japan, Korea). To differentiate themselves, players in the sector must invest in new technologies: signalling systems, connectivity, predictive maintenance analyses, data processing to analyse the state of equipment in real time, etc.
Moreover, the sector must respond to several problems:
- Replacing outdated equipment while innovating
- Gain market share by responding to calls for tenders that are demanding in terms of innovation, performance, safety and the environment
These major challenges require manufacturers to meet ever more innovative challenges.
MCA is referenced by most players in the rail market. The Group provides engineering solutions for each phase of a project, drawing on its expertise in the transport sector.
MCA works on the 4 main axes of the sectorinfrastructure, rolling stock, signalling and equipmentand on the entire V cycle of product development. MCA's international dimension enables it to accompany its clients on different markets.
The pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology industries must continually invest to be at the forefront of innovation.
The market is in full evolution and is developing around 4 axes: connected health and IOT, industry 4.0, innovative medical equipment and Big Data.
The ageing of the population, diseases and the expiry of numerous patents are pushing these industries to invest in R&D, particularly in Biotech and production. The introduction of artificial intelligence also opens up new perspectives such as patient services.
The subject of health implies optimal risk management and very demanding quality processes. Moreover, quality assurance represents the majority of outsourcing needs on the part of market players and is a key issue in the sector. Manufacturers are audited very regularly by organizations around the world and therefore plan heavy investments on quality.
The aeronautics sector offers strong growth prospects with the sustained increase in air traffic. This leads to an increase in orders and therefore in the production rate. Industry players are investing in R&D to produce cleaner aircraft. At the same time, the sector is becoming digital: equipment manufacturers and manufacturers are integrating new technologies (big data, virtual reality, factory 4.0, robots, etc.). The introduction of artificial intelligence opens new perspectives.
The maintenance market is undergoing a complete transformation to obtain better performance.
The market outlook is therefore based on the capacity of the major players in the sector to innovate, while controlling production constraints.
In Space, the launchers and satellite communications market is very dynamic. The sector is gradually industrializing with the arrival of new players from the private sector allowing a drop in the cost of production. Global competition drives innovation and investment.
In Defence, faced with an unstable geopolitical context, governments continue to invest massively, particularly in cyber security.
MCA is involved in Aeronautics, Space and Defence industrial projects throughout the product life cycle in France and internationally.
The Group has set up partnerships in France and Vietnam to propose innovative and economic solutions in the field of mechanical calculation applied to Aeronautics.
MCA has a team of consultants at the cutting edge of technology, who are attentive to customers and users in order to propose ever more innovative and effective solutions.
