A Global Presence
Breton has been operating on the market for 60 years and has always believed that in order to provide a service that meets its customers’ needs it must not only employ specialized and highly skilled personnel, but also maintain a widespread territorial presence. In fact, the company’s objective has always been to provide a service of excellence and for this reason, over the years, Breton has established branches in various countries to create a well-structured global presence.
This puts Breton in close contact with its customers to meet their requirements as quickly as possible with the best possible solutions, eliminating delays and breaking down language barriers, creating specialized services for the context of reference.
