Casablanca, December 28th, 2022 –
The exit of Amethis from the capital of Disway Tunisia was successfully completed at the end of last month, in favour of the majority shareholder Disway SA, which consolidated its participation to 100%.
Disway Tunisia is an operator of wholesale distribution of computer hardware and software. Present in Tunis, Sfax and Sousse with more than 40 employees, Disway Tunisia offers a wide range of

Under the guidance of Disway SA and with the support of Amethis, Disway Tunisia has progressively strengthened its position on the Tunisian market, until becoming the second player, with a quality and innovative offer. Today, the company plans to consolidate this position and to continue to enrich its offer.
Hakim Belmaachi, Chairman of the Management Board of Disway SA, said “Amethis’ entry into the capital of Disway Tunisia has significantly strengthened our position on the market by providing the company with the necessary means and governance. Amethis’ support in this development phase has enabled Disway Tunisia to accelerate its growth and considerably improve its fundamentals”.

Disway Tunisia is now well established on its market and offers a wide and varied range of truly innovative solutions for its customers. We are obviously happy about this new achievement for Amethis in the region”.
