As part of the France 2030 plan, the French government has announced the release of €16 billion to support the development of the electronics industry. Although Isère has been a major breeding ground for the sector, ITANCIA, a French eco-responsible group specialising in communications technologies, network collaboration and corporate security, wants to create a cutting-edge electronics / microelectronics electronics cluster in Western France.
Already present in Grenoble through a unit dedicated to microelectronics and semiconductors through its ITANCIA Factory Factory business, the ITANCIA group has seen a steady stream of orders over the past 3 orders pouring in. And while Isère is now well established in the sector in the sector, ITANCIA has decided to expand its production capacity to decided to expand its offering by developing a new unit in Maine et Loire, to provide customers in the west and north of France with greater proximity and responsiveness.
Valanjou (50 employees - 3500 m2 of premises) is already home to the group's smartphone and tablet reconditioning line for businesses, on which the group's unique DAS measurement technology is applied to check the waves emitted by smartphones before they are sent back onto the market. It was therefore natural that ITANCIA should choose this innovative, cutting-edge site to develop this new microelectronics project by investing more than €500K to acquire technological assets (X-ray machine, PDR, infrared infrared machine, etc.) and to recruit and train staff dedicated to this market.
Thanks to its extensive expertise in electronic board rework, component recovery, BGA resoldering and X-ray ITANCIA is able to support its 150 customers in sectors such as industry, defence, medical and, of course, semiconductors. Located between Grenoble and Valanjou, ITANCIA Factory is structuring and developing to support all projects, from the most practical to the most innovative, thanks in particular to high-performance R&D.
"We are determined to continue our development in France by innovating, creating jobs, enhancing the value of historical expertise and reducing the carbon impact of private and public organisations. With a presence in this market already in Isère, it seemed obvious and necessary to us to develop a new high-tech electronics basin in our home region, in order to be in direct contact with our customers and their projects. This proximity enables us to support them in their ecological, economic and technological challenges. We believe in the development of local services, in regional coverage and in sensible growth that brings people together", explains Thierry Le Goff, Itancia's Managing Director.
