"We are very pleased that, to carry this out we can rely on Bruno and Clotilde Villers, thanks to the acquisition of MIS, a company which has an excellent reputation and which deserves investment for growth."

We share the values of commitment, quality and service which will ensure the success of Piriou Côte d’Ivoire. I remain committed to serving my clients, my employees and my partners."
