It was on Tuesday, April 13th, 1999 that 3 businessmen began the Telenco adventure. By combining their knowledge in the telecom sector, the “Telecommunications Engineering Company” started its activity with the design and manufacture of anchoring, suspension and hardware equipment. It is the launch of a first product range: Telenco®.
The year of its creation, Telenco has already experienced its first turning point. In December 1999, a storm wreaked devastation on the French territory, destroying the surrounding aerial telecom networks. The French operator France Télécoms has deployed significant resources to rebuild them. This was a great opportunity for Telenco, which was able to get in touch and start collaborating on several projects with Orange France.
Telenco's constant growth has generated the need to adapt its offer according to market development. The company then evolved into three complementary entities:
Telenco networks, expert in the engineering, manufacturing and marketing of passive equipment for telecommunications networks
Telenco distribution, supplier for networks materials and technician’s equipment for telecom operators and their subcontractors
Telenco services, specialist in telecom metrology and trainer for network technicians and installers who need help with their telecom network deployment projects
With a strong business organisation, the group keeps growing by reaching new markets all over the world. In line with its continuous development, Telenco is expanding its worldwide coverage by creating Telenco Portugal in 2012. With 8000m² of storage space and manufacturing units, the company is up to its international ambition.
Telenco is now increasing its presence throughout the world by setting up new entities in overseas territories (Reunion Island, Martinique), but also outside the European continent: in Africa (Senegal, Ivory Coast) and recently in Latin America with Telenco LATAM, located in Mexico City.
Telenco is gathering past experience, is involved in the present-day and is already planning for the future. Strengthened by a market in constant evolution with the introduction of 5G, smart cities or connected devices, the Telenco group and its 250 employees are constantly ready to face new challenges!
