«With the acquisition of SETELEC, we continue our territorial growth to help the biggest brands of electronics and household appliances with their after-sales services and to meet the needs of every French person. We also developed a technical platform – unique on our market – to meet exactly the needs of each client. We now cover 65% of the country, which allows us to offer a simple and efficient expert local service to each of our users.» Thierry Le Goff, Managing Directof of Itancia Group.

«Itancia is a strong French group with which I share the same values. As Itancia, SETELEC has always cared about sustainability with refurbished products and repair services. To keep growing and to ensure the future of the company we needed some help in the administrative and HR missions. Itancia’s experience and ambition allow us to look at the future of SETELEC with confidence» Audrey Adam, Manager at SETELEC.
