SDV opens new regional HQ in France 30 June 2015

Facility is part of SDV’s strategy to develop its ability to operate in France

SDV is inaugurating a new facility located in Saint Aignan Grandlieu, south of Nantes (France). Built on a land of one hectare, it provides a space of 2,700 m2 of offices (for 200 people) on three levels.

It responds to the challenges of effective operations management but also reflects the environmental dimension which has been placed at the heart of the specification since the initial phase of the project. The building is High Quality Environmental (HQE) certified and will be the headquarters of the Grand West region, relayed locally by branches of Quimper, Rennes, Montoir and Cholet.

The building will also host the teams of Saga, another forwarding agent of the group in France.

The Nantes site employs 160 people, not only associated to the regional headquarter functions but also dedicated to the management of customers’ international logistics operations across Nantes.

With this new infrastructure, SDV is responding to the requirements of its customers and especially  those of the food industry, aerospace and defence, high technology, marine and yachting and retail industries.

The facility is part of SDV’s strategy to develop its ability to operate in France, and is the first realisation of an extensive investment programme of the Bolloré Group in France in 2015 and 2016.
