(France) – The new Paris office follows the acquisition of local distributor Avab Transtechnik France.
ETC has announced the opening of its newest office in Paris, France following the acquisition of local French distributor Avab Transtechnik France (ATF).
ATF has been selling and supporting ETC products for more than fifteen years. When owners Jean-Louis Pernette and Christian Rezgui retired in May, an opportunity arose for ETC to acquire the French company and increase its presence in the European market. With this acquisition, ATF becomes part of the ETC family and is officially named ETC France.
“I am extremely grateful for the dedication and effort Jean-Louis Pernette and Christian Rezgui have contributed through their leadership of ATF over the years,” said Fred Foster, co-Founder and CEO of ETC. “The close relationships they have built with our customers in France and the strength of the ATF team provide us with a solid foundation to build the future of ETC France. We wish them all the best in their future projects.”
All ATF employees joined ETC as part of the acquisition. “The men and women of this organisation are our first force,” added Atika El Sayed, new General Manager of ETC France. “We want to continue to develop our presence in France thanks to this close relationship with the market that the team has been weaving for many years.”
ETC France is supported by current Regional Sales Manager, Daniele Peroni as well as Field Project Coordinators, Philippe Roy for ETC products, and Konstantinos Vonofakidis for the High End System’s brand.
