On 31 December 2017, CMI employed 5 546 people throughout the world, which is an increase of one thousand members of staff in one year. This increase is explained first by the acquisitions made in 2017 (more than 600 staff) and by organic growth, essentially in France, India, in the Czech Republic and in Morocco. With the acquisition of CIM in particular, the Group is getting a foothold in Central America.
