On Monday 12 October 2015, Denis Akriche, Chair of the Management Board of armatis-lc, opened the group’s new premises in Calais in the presence of Natacha Bouchart, Senator and Mayor of Calais and Chair of Calais Promotion.
armatis-lc, a major player in the contact centre sector, has been established in Calais since 2003. The company operates 12 sites in metropolitan France as well as three others abroad, and employs a workforce of 7,000. Its decision to consolidate its operation in the Calais area led to the opening of a new site and the creation of up to 350 new jobs.
The 650 employees at the Calais site moved into their new premises in the Marcel Doret Business Park in September. The 4,000 m2 office block, designed by Lyon-based promoter DCB International, meets both the specific needs of a call centre and the environmental standards currently in force in France (RT 2012).
