FRAIKIN, a leader in long-term leasing of commercial and industrial vehicles in Europe, is finalising the acquisition of VIA Location. It marks the beginning of an adventure for this new Group, whose turnover will approach a billion euros.
Known and recognised throughout Europe for 75 years, the FRAIKIN Group stands out – more than ever thanks to this great acquisition – as the leader of this sector in Europe.
Drawing on the expertise of its teams and those of VIA Location, and by capitalising on the unique know-how of the two networks, the Group will be able to offer its customers a broader range of innovative services, a dense national network and closer support at all times.
“We are very happy to be able to start this new chapter alongside the teams at VIA Location. Our customers will benefit from greater expertise and skills, which will confirm our position as the leader in this sector”, explains Philippe Mellier, CEO of the FRAIKIN Group.
As part of the integration of VIA Location into the FRAIKIN Group, Laurent Garnier, who has worked for the Group for more than 15 years, shall become the Managing Director of VIA Location, with the support of Olivier Renard, who has agreed to work with us until the end of the year. He will report directly to Philippe Mellier.
