Acuitis has signed a contract for the acquisition of AcoustiCentre, the leading chain of hearing aids shops in the French part of Switzerland. Founded in February 2010 in Geneva by Daniel Abittan, a co-founder of GrandVision, Acuitis will thus have a network of 17 stores in Switzerland selling its special eyeglasses with integrated hearing aids, designed by Frédéric Beausoleil. They will join 16 other stores in France and three in Luxembourg. All except 18 franchises are directly owned by the company. About 20 more are in the pipeline for next year.
