Designer and manufacturer of equipment for conveying all types of bulk products, the SAUTEC company, located in Tourcoing (Nord), opens its first concession in the Eure-et-Loir.
For several years, the company has been offering its customers the rental of ready-to-use equipment delivered within very short lead times thanks to its stock management.
However, managing a single stock is at its limits: "Rental is a popular service, particularly for our customers who use the equipment on a seasonal or one-off basis. Some of our customers wish to rent our equipment for very short periods: less than 1 week! However, because of the location of our stock, the cost of transport for some regions is higher than the cost of renting. Inconceivable for the customer ", confides Olivier Dobelle, co-manager of the company SAUTEC.
From this came the idea of developing the company through concessions. "Our aim is to be as close as possible to our customers so that they can benefit from being close to the equipment", explains Olivier Dobelle.
For the co-manager, setting up his first dealership in the Eure-et-Loir is a matter of course. "The agricultural sector has been at the heart of our business for some thirty years. So it was quite natural for us to set up our first concession in Beauce, the granary of France. It is also a very seasonal sector, particularly suited to our rental offer. "
In order to carry out this project, the company has joined forces with the company SARL Maillard (in the photo, the departments in green represent the geographical area allocated to the SARL Maillard concession). A family business for decades, the Maillard company covers all activities related to agrostorage facilities. "Our customers come from many sectors of activity: agriculture, agro-industry, bulk industry or storage and warehousing. Thanks to our dealer's many years of experience in these fields, customers will be able to benefit from the advice and expertise of a professional," says Olivier Dobelle.
For the co-manager of SAUTEC, the opening of this first dealership is just the beginning. "We hope to open other dealerships very soon in order to establish a network throughout France and thus provide the same quality of service to all our customers. "
