Specializing in teaching equipment for technical, university or research education, the company, based in Carcassonne since 1967, has posted a 30% increase in its turnover. Taken over by three employees a few months ago, new avenues are available to it.
"What is this company and what is it doing in Carcassonne?" When they were recruited by Deltalab-SMT in 2015, it was the first thought that came to mind from Marie-Anne Carpéné and Audric Michelot. However, nothing necessarily predestined these two doctors in chemistry, who are the current co-managers with Sonia Martinez, to take the reins of a company devoted to educational material used for technical, university, scientific and industrial information.
The energy, the competence of the team in place and the diversity of the fields of intervention did the rest, under the leadership of the then director: Stéphane Tagliante. "He was one of Continental's alumni. Following his dismissal, he bought Deltalab in 2014, which he managed until his retirement in November 2020, "explains Audric Michelot.
A manager who had initiated an obvious dynamic, in particular in the search for new business which, until then, had not been able to be exploited. "We are seeing the results today," comments Marie-Anne Carpéné. Because Deltalab displays, for the year 2020, a turnover with double-digit growth.
And not just a little: almost 30%! "We are in a sector sensitive to the effects of inertia and delay in the realization of business, qualify the co-managers.
"What is certain is that today, thanks to the strategy implemented by Stéphane Tagliante, we are studying all the cases that are presented to us. and the size of our customers. "
