AGAIN IS A BRAND CREATED BY ITANCIA, THE FRENCH ECO-RECYCLING SPECIALIST
Over the past several years, the ITANCIA Group has achieved two-figure growth, which we are able to sustain through our ambitious strategic vision. Having ended 2015 with €113 million (compared to €90 million in 2014 which equates to 25% growth), the company now aims to reach €150 million in the next two years.
INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION OF FRENCH EXPERTISE
The ITANCIA Group was set up in 1991 by Mr Yann Pineau. The company, which has been based from the outset near the town of Cholet (49) in the Maine-et-Loire département, specialises in value-added distribution of telecoms and IT products. ITANCIA has shown long-term commitment to the local economy, notably through its desire to supply all subsidiaries from its French logistics centre (24-hour deliveries in France and 48-hour deliveries in Europe). With an ideal location at the heart of Europe, the group has quickly expanded its international network, opening around ten subsidiaries over the past fifteen years serving almost 80 countries. The French group now employs some 330 staff (including 200 based in the Maine-et-Loire département, 50 at the company headquarters in Nanterre, in the Hauts-de-Seine département and around 100 in European and African subsidiaries).
AND A PERMANENT COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Based on a fundamental commitment to sustainable development, the group has also launched an increasing number of initiatives since its creation with a view to playing a sustainable role in its environment. Indeed, ITANCIA pursues a continuous improvement programme based on 3 strategic priorities: an environmental priority (more sustainable consumption, minimal pollution and maximum offsetting), a social priority (optimal working conditions, staff development, involvement in the local community) and an economic priority (involving employees and partners in our sustainable development process). This CSR policy is implemented by a dedicated team and coordinated by a Quality/Safety/Environment manager. One of the projects that best reflects its objectives is the ITANCIA endowment fund (fondsdedotationitancia.com) set up in 2011, which supports around twenty sustainable development projects throughout the world. The group and its founder contribute some of their dividends to this fund.”
