A successful year 2021 for TOPSEC
The year 2021, despite a long period of closure due to the health crisis, has been rich in rebound and development for Topsec. Between new partnerships, launch of new brands and events, our sports and leisure items vending machines have made their mark!
NEW STRONG PARTNERS
In order to reinforce our concept of Skaty vending machines for ice rinks, we have chosen to collaborate with a major partner: Synerglace, European leader in fixed and mobile ice rinks. This association appeared to be an obvious way to extend our territorial presence by forging a strong link with the best in its field.
Similarly, we were chosen to enter into a partnership with SNCF Gares & Connexions in order to support them in their new “Sport in Stations” concept. To this end, we have developed new TOPSEC multi-sport vending machines with items adapted to the needs of travellers and an attractive design. They offer fitness, swimming, skating and padel items that vary according to the season. Our sport vending machines are currently deployed in Paris Gare de Lyon, Le Mans, Grenoble, Valence, Lorraine TGV, Toulon and will soon be in Gare de Nîmes Pont du Gard and Montpellier.
OUR VENDING MACHINES APPEAL TO JOURNALISTS
As soon as our multi-sport vending machines were installed in France : in “Paris Gare de Lyon”, we were contacted by several journalists. Starting with France Bleu Maine who dedicated a radio interview to us in the economic section and published an article on their website. Then Actu.fr Le Mans, wanted to do a written interview.
In the same way, the Open Media agency produced an article and a report on our premises for broadcast on the famous BFMTV website.
Finally, the magazine Centres Aquatiques wished to highlight our know-how through an article dedicated to our core business: swimming pool products.
During the “Salon des Maires et des collectivités”, the magazine Sportmag also wanted to dedicate a video interview to us to find out more about our concept of automatic distribution of sports and leisure articles.
Our concept extended to new activities
Presented as a preview at the “Salon des Maires”, our new and increasingly original and innovative vending machine concepts in the world of sports and leisure are attracting attention and interest.
Based on its concept of responding to a need for immediate purchase but also for repairs near the places where sports and leisure activities are practised, TOPSEC has detected a significant potential and need for outdoor activities which are booming.
Indeed, we have chosen to extend our concept to horse riding in order to provide riding schools with the essential items for the practice and well-being of the rider and the horse.
We have also taken a gamble on the development of Padel, an activity that is already very popular in Spain and that is growing in France since it’s part of the French Tennis Federation.
OUR COLLABORATION FOR SPORTS EVENTS
Thanks to our technical partnership with the French Swimming Federation, we were lucky enough to be chosen to supply the customised swimming caps for a unique open water event: the SwimXperience. An obstacle race in the Canal St Martin in Paris.
Similarly, the city of Limoges organised, for the first time, a Triathlon with the Aquapolis aquatic centre. This was a very successful sporting event and we are proud to have been able to collaborate on it.
