A new owner for Disposelec
France: in a bad shape since some months, brown and white specialist Disposelec has been acquired by co-op Euronics for only €500k. Its managing director, Jean-Claude Rivière, has been laid out, along with two third of the employees. Now on a streamlined team of 22 people managed by Fabrice Filleur, Disposelec will remain "independant" and will focus on its traditional, 3500-reseller strong market as well as 40 Présence electrical goods shops. It is also coming back on the personal IT market, and is busy rebuilding a new portfolio. The distributor will leave its historical offices for a new warehouse near Nantes. Its former, half-sister company Actual Systèmes, whose Nantes' team is accomodated in Disposelec's current premises, will have to find out new offices.
