Internationalisation in the ECI portfolio

International expansion plays an important part in ECI’s growth strategy. We have a strong track record of supporting international expansion in the portfolio through both organic growth in international territories, and through acquisitions as evidenced by nine international bolt-ons across ECI 9 from a total of the 17 completed to date.
