The IT company Altimance, a subsidiary of the British group SCC - Specialist Computer Centers, has announced the opening of a new site in Azin (Nord) and to recruit about 30 to 40 employees for the opening in September 2017. Then it will recruit other employees to reach a total workforce of 250 employees by 2020. CSC employs already 2,400 employees in France and works for large companies as Engie, Orange, PSA or Aeroports de Paris. The new employees will be mainly technicians hired on "help desker" positions, but also engineers and administrative staff.

The region Haut-de-France has supported this implementation with a subsidy of €1.5 million (according to Les Echos) on a total investment of €15 million. According to the president of the region, the site of Anzin was in competition with a location in Eastern Europe.
