Founded in 1980 in the Lyon region, Matit is a group specialized in the field of metal processing. Thanks to a dynamic investment policy, Matit has succeeded in establishing itself in a highly competitive subcontracting market. In 1990, Monsieur Petit, manager of the Matit group and passionate about cooking, decided to create the Collet Cuisson brand in response to the lack of competitive products for food cooking.
This industry dedicated to the design and manufacture of barbecues, planchas and outdoor kitchens is distinguished by its know-how in innovation. All the inventions have enabled the Collet Cuisson brand to have a technological advance on its market.
Frédéric Varenne, a banker by training, has spent his entire career at Crédit Agricole. In particular, he carried out a project to win back market share of the group with the creation of a new agency for which he will gather more than 400 new customers in 2 years.
Philippe Rivière, with over 18 years of experience in Industry, is the founder of ACI Group and has worked in positions of responsibility in the fields of forging, aeronautics, and environmental safety.
Frédéric will bring his skills and know-how in commercial development to build and revitalize the company’s distribution network, while building on the industrial experience of Philippe Rivière, to optimise supply chain and logistics management in order to maintain «Made in France» quality production.
These two entrepreneurs have identified significant commercial potential that they will be able to develop through their respective experiences and have, in this sense, mandated the I-Deal Development team in an exclusive way to support them in the recovery of the Collet Cuisson business.
