SIPLEC is the E.Leclerc Group’s Department, responsible for all energy products. SIPLEC is also in charge of manufactured products purchasing (hardline, textile and shoes) made in France, Europe and abroad.
SIPLEC develops, purchases and markets products and services worldwide. Those are in line with the company’s values and commitments, mainly in the Energy and Manufacturing industries.
While SIPLEC is essentially focused on serving the E.LECLERC stores and national entities, we also work alongside businesses and E.LECLERC customers.
Founded in 1979, with the ambition to counter the oil companies’ monopoly on fuel, SIPLEC soon became a prominent player in the French market.
Subsequently, the company branched out into new business sectors in response to ever-changing needs, that includes non-food consumer goods. The company extended its energy know-how to many fields of services for both individuals and companies.
