40 years of international experience
In 2010, after 30 years of international experience, DEF set in motion its future expansion over five continents by creating a Department of International Operations (DOI).
It was created by merging two existing DEF entities which were already well-established abroad:
– AFRIMO, covering Africa and the Middle East
– TTAI, for French overseas departments and territories, as well as any other international opportunities.
Nowadays, DEF’s direct presence in five continents is guaranteed by its subsidiaries, its Network and its partners (DEF Service Partners, or DSPs). DEF has seven subsidiaries located abroad, two of them under the authority of DOI: DEF Tunisia and DEF West Africa.
