CONCEPT BACKGROUND
UNIQUE AND INNOVATIVE

It all started 20 years ago, in chlorinated pools.

In 2000, Thierry Alimondo, former captain of the French water polo team, developed a revolutionary service to support swimming pools in their implementation of new hygiene measures (mandatory wearing of swimming caps and the banning of swimming shorts). He knew that with his first vending machine of swimming goods at the sports premises themselves, he had just launched a totally innovative, original concept. And most importantly, one focused on your latest expectations.

THE TOPSEC GROUP

Already seen a vending machine of swimming goods at your swimming pool complex?
It’s ours!

The immediate, undeniable success of this concept quickly won over pools across France, before setting out to conquer Europe (Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Spain).
As it's not only in France that swimmers forget their swimsuit or swim cap before going out for a swim!

Every day, since its creation, TOPSEC has been investing in new playing fields by launching complementary shopping experiences (Corner SHOP, CONCEPT SRTORE, etc.) and by launching its concept at new establishments such as skating rinks and other sports and leisure establishments of the future.

The creativity of Thierry Alimondo was mind-blowing for Olympic pools, it became the key to the success of a unique company, a company that has always seen its initiatives driven by excellence, service and customer satisfaction.

OUR PURPOSE :

to meet the needs of all those practising sports and leisure activities at their very own location.

OUR VALUES :

ambition, customer satisfaction, commitment, making a difference.
