Point S France and Siligom have joined forces in the creation of a new group which represents 650 retail outlets, 500 independent entrepreneurs, 4,000 employees and a consolidated turnover of roughly 580 million euros. The businesses offer tyres and maintenance for passenger cars as well as for trucks, agricultural and earthmover vehicles.
According to the two companies, the new French group offers “the best geographic coverage for cars and trucks fleet customers thanks to the complementarity of both networks implementation”. This B2B strategy will be supported by a common purchasing policy and an annual sales volume of more than two million tyres.
“This rapprochement is going to reinforce the representativeness of independent tyre dealers in the French market. We get organized to pursue our development in a market which is facing a faster concentration in the distribution. This agreement is giving rise to a strong, independent group with two retail banners”, comments Christophe Rollet, Point S France managing director – Point S Development vice president.
