Our History

Our greatest achievement is that we have created more than 90,000 jobs.

Samsic's story began in 1986. At that time, our only business was cleaning. The acronym SAMSIC, Société d'Application et de Maintenance des Surfaces Industrielles et Commerciales no longer reflects its original meaning, as our activities have since diversified. In 30 years, we have constantly expanded our solutions and opened operations internationally to position ourselves as a leader in integrated business services for companies dedicated to the work environment and Human Resources.
