03 January 2022
The Itancia group in 2021 is :
- Double-digit growth over the last 4 years
- 550 employees versus 450 in 2020
- 3 new company acquisitions
- 2.5M products shipped worldwide versus 2M in 2020
- 165,000 products repaired & 416,000 refurbished products sold, i.e. 14,200 tonnes of CO2 saved, which is equivalent to 1,294 years of CO2 emissions for a French person
- 14,190T of CO2 saved versus 12,336T of C02 in 2020 via our eco-friendly solutions
The “Rise” project:
As part of its Rise project, the Itancia Group has strengthened its unique market positioning by creating three new strategic pillars around its historical activities:
- Itancia Technology : distribution of innovative technological solutions with more than 70 leading brands in their markets
- Itancia Factory : services and customized advice based on technical, logistical and industrial know-how upstream and downstream of projects
- Itancia Again : an activity with an ecological mission and the group’s history, offering reconditioned products and buy-back to extend the life of products while helping companies to reduce their environmental impact
These activities, supported by three new brands, make it possible to meet the market’s expectations in terms of new technologies and eco-responsibility.
The new brand ‘909’:
2021 was also marked by the development of our new brand 909, the newbornin the home repair market for consumer electronics and appliances. 909 was born from the merger of four key players in this market: Tech Service, LM3S, STVS and Iphinity. The brand now has 5 branches across France. We are thus developing our local service offers around the repair of white goods and strands in nearly 60% of the French territory.
The “CSR” commitment:
Driven by a deep commitment since 1991, the Itancia group has multiplied its initiatives to sustainably address environmental, social and economic issues.
Our commitment is reflected in the concrete actions implemented on our sites, our eco-responsible offers and solutions and our endowment fund which supports projects in favour of biodiversity protection :
- 3,250M2 of solar panels or 500MWh of energy generated in 2020 versus 4,700M2 of solar panels or 650MWh of energy generated in 2021
- 1 commercial fleet composed of 40% Hybrid vehicles and 60% electric vehicles in 2020 versus 3% Hybrid vehicles and 97% electric vehicles in 2021
- 50% of employees are women
- 120 projects supported since the creation of the group’s Endowment Fund 10 years ago
The group provides concrete projects for societal development. Thanks to its association with Qualea, an adapted company with which the Itancia group is proud to be associated for the creation of a Temporary Company Grouping in order to contribute to the professional integration of people with disabilities. This operation thus enables us to propose an offer of equipment takeover to companies, via our Itancia Again activity, with a view to reconditioning and reuse of the elements bought back.
