Founded in 1991 in Maine-et-Loire in western France.
It was founded on a pragmatic and innovative desire to introduce a new proposition to the business telecommunications sector, giving used equipment a second life and extending its lifespan by repairing rather than replacing it.
Well before environmentalism became fashionable, Itancia group founder Yann Pineau’s aim was to do all he could to promote sustainable alternatives that would be beneficial for his customers and for the environment.
Itancia’s business is now based on 3 solid, ethical and complementary pillars, so that we can continue to support each customer and partner with all of their needs: Itancia Technology, Itancia Factory and Itancia Again.
Holding itself to the very highest standards, the group delivers its solutions and know-how in over 80 countries, through its 550 employees and its 6 subsidiaries in Europe and Africa.
50% growth over the last 5 years, with group revenues of €220 million in 2021
Our activities resulted in a saving of 14,190T C02e in 2021.

Yann Pineau, CEO and Founder of the Itancia group
Based on the simple idea that business and the environment are not mutually exclusive, I have always endeavoured to make these two key aspects the focus of our development choices. Itancia is a French group with an international presence. It is sustainable and profitable, and respects technology, people and nature.
Ever since the group was created, a strong family mindset has prevailed within its teams
A commitment reflected in each of our actions and through the Itancia’s endowment fund
A customer-oriented mindset shared by all our teams, who all pull together to meet shared goals
To get our partners onboard for the green transition, changing the way companies consume technology and making them more responsible and more sustainable.
Inspire & guide
each company to adopt a responsible approach to sustainable development and enjoy all the benefits it brings
each organisation the technology environment best suited to its needs and usage practices
Guide & support
each company in its projects via bespoke technical, logistical and industrial services
– Support customers in adopting a more responsible approach by offering long-term solutions, be they low-carbon or more economical and sustainable – as well as giving them the tools to manage their environmental impact.
– Reduce our own impact on the environment every day by turning as many aspects of our business green as possible (electric vehicles for travel, self-sufficient electricity supply via solar panels, eco-grazing, etc).
It is not a matter of choosing between business and the environment; it is about working to achieve synergies between the two!
