Euriware, a French company founded in 1991, has 1,900 employees and revenues of € 220 million; Areva is its largest client representing over 50% of revenues. Euriware offers outsourcing and systems integration services as well high value added industrial engineering and information security systems to clients in the energy, manufacturing and defense sectors.
