On November 14, 2013 at MAPIC, Calais Promotion hosted on its stand the signing of a tripartite declaration of commitment between the city of Calais, Armatis L-C and DCB International for the implementation of the new Armatis call center.
Natacha Bouchart, Mayor of Calais, Denis Akriche, CEO of Armatis L-C and Didier Caudard-Breille, promoter of DCB International in charge of the implementation of the new site, welcomed the fruitful collaboration for the city Calais and its territory.
After the extension of the site of Boulogne-sur-Mer in 2011, today Calais knows in turn this project of expansion. These successive reinforcements of Armatis L-C roots in the Pas-de-Calais reflect the satisfaction of the company with the quality of work and commitment of its northerners employees. They also highlight the excellent cooperation and the high level of trust between Armatis L-C and local communities.
On the site of Calais are activities of issuance of calls, call reception and back office for clients such as Orange, Darty, Conforama, Sofinco or American Express.
Armatis L-C is a major French player in the market for contact centers, expert telesales and customer service, with 6,500 employees in 12 locations in France and 3 international sites. With this signature, Armatis L-C group is now part of the economic life of Calais. By setting in the Marcel Doret area, far from the city center, as originally planned three years ago, it will eventually employ in Calais over a thousand people.
