Itancia to strengthen in Africa
Ivory Coast: French network and telecom VAD Itancia has decided to open by the end of the year a new subsidiary in Abidjan. The goal of Itancia Côte d'Ivoire is to cover more efficiently the subsaharian, French-speaking African countries. Currently, Itancia covers this region from its Tunisian office.
Itancia reinforces its repair activity
France: eco-recycling and telecom VAD Itancia has acquired for an undisclosed amount Isard, a Cholet-based company specialised in the repairing of POS/POC systems. With a 25-people strong team, Isard has realized a turnover of €3m in 2013. The company will not move to Itancia's premises, which are about 10 km far from Cholet. Because repairing ought to become an important part of Itancia's business (currently about €8m without Isard, mainly on telecoms, networking, consumer electronics and display), the distributor has decided to create a dedicated BU, which will include 10 specialists, more able to push the offer to resellers and partners than currently.
