Why Xandrie ?

On the death of Alexander the Great, Ptolemy, one of his generals, became the king of Egypt known as Ptolemy I Soter.

He wanted Alexandria to become the cultural capital of the Hellenistic world, ahead of Athens.

In 288 BC, he decided to build a library in Alexandria.
His main goal was to collect, in the same place, all the knowledge in the universe.

Although it has now disappeared, the Library of Alexandria was the most famous library in the Ancient World, bringing together the most important works of the period.
It is estimated that it may have contained up to 700,000 of them!

It is in a nod to history and in homage to this cultural site that we have chosen the French diminutive form of Alexandria, Xandrie, as our company name.
