PARIS - Thursday, September 24th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)--A pioneer company in long and short-term industrial and commercial vehicle rentals, Via Location will celebrate its 110 year anniversary in 2016.
With 52 branches (included 43 integrated workshops) located in France, French overseas departments, Belgium and Netherlands, and more than 670 employees (including 200 professional drivers who provide a driver service in addition to the vehicle rental), Via Location generated almost 140 million euros in turnover in 2014.
A proactive player in the French economic landscape and a real "shadow banker", Via Location provides companies in all industries with more than 8000 vehicles which are suited to the specific technical aspects of their activities.
Under the direction of its new management team, Via Location is beginning a new life focused on the satisfaction of its clients and a stronger sense of service.
The appointment of Xavier P. Negiar (as CEO of Via Location and chairman of the group holding company), as well as a new management team, has breathed new life into the teams' rhythm. These moves have been bearing fruit since May 2015. "The structure of the business which is based, above all, on growth in the sales force and galvanized activity, has allowed us to achieve significant and repeated success" according to Olivier Renard, Sales Director of Via Location.
With made-to-measure customization of vehicles, flexibility, upkeep, maintenance and insurance, Via Location is a "full service" system integrator of technical and innovative solutions which meet the current and future needs of companies.
With operational teams which unite functionality and technique, a portfolio of diversified orders and a shared roadmap, Xavier P. Négiar thinks that "Via Location has met the conditions for creating an alignment of interests between suppliers, clients and employees".
Continuing this positive momentum, Via Location will soon gather all of its key functions at their new headquarters in Paris business district La Défense, which have been expanded and cover over 1600m2. On the agenda is the creation of a start-up incubator which is in line with their industry (IAS, driving, safety, ecology etc.) and a high tech showroom. Via Location is indeed a company of its time!
