Les Papeteries – Image Factory

The old machine halls of Cran-Gevrier recently underwent a total revamp and reopened in 2015 as Les Papeteries – Image Factory. The building now plays host to companies working in moving images and creative industries, while CITIA coordinates the day-to-day running of the space.

The building, located just outside Annecy, offers considerable assets and provides a conducive ecosystem to the development of the residing companies (audiovisuel, animation, multimedia, video games, transmedia, web, mobile, etc.).

To be found in these 7,000 m2 of modular space:

  • offices to purchase or rent
  • a business park for start-up companies
  • a resource centre with a conference room, screening room and creative space
  • a catering area with two terraces
  • Les Pixels residence with 28 rentable accommodation
  • schools and training institutions

CITIA also has on-site offices for their head of Economic Development. There is also an area dedicated to welcoming businesses that are in the process of stepping up their action in the French Tech in the Alps scheme, which is a great opportunity for companies to be informed and benefit from the activities and networks of the sector.
