Yale strengthens dealer network in France

Four dealer groups have joined the Yale Dealer Network in France increasing the company’s coverage.

Newly appointed Yale dealer Oman SAS will represent the brand in the Rennes and Nantes regions, Vitamotor will be active in the Rouen and Tours areas, Demolin will represent Yale in the Normandie region covering Calvados, Eure, Manche and Seine Maritime and Mazoyer will exclusively represent the Yale brand in the Côte-d’Or department.

Yale has been making a concerted effort to increase its presence throughout France and the appointment of Oman, Vitamotor, Demolin and Mazoyer, four very experienced dealerships, will provide increased sales, hire and after sales service coverage to its growing customer base in the north west of the country.

Christophe Maillet, Yale’s dealer business development director, commented: “All four dealers, Oman, Vitamotor, Demolin and Mazoyer bring a very experienced team to the Yale dealer network. We are confident that their knowledge of the market, combined with their enthusiasm and motivation to support the Yale brand, will result in increased market share for Yale in France and have a positive impact on the dealers’ businesses.

“The French market is steadily recovering from the economic downturn that affected the global materials handling market, and these four dealers are ideally placed to capitalise on the growth opportunity by offering Yale’s full range of materials handling equipment.”

The extensive Yale product range, from pallet trucks, reach trucks and stackers through to electric, diesel and LPG counterbalance forklift trucks and turret trucks, offers unrivalled productivity and the lowest lifetime cost of ownership solution on the market.

Part of Groupe Debreuil, Oman operates five regional offices, including a head office in Rennes. The company prides itself on its strong commitment to customer service and quality control.

Vitamotor is part of the Vectis Group, an industrial and mechanical maintenance company created in 1935. Forming the company’s forklift truck division, Vitamotor offers sales, short and long term lease and full service packages and operates dedicated offices in Tours and Le Mans.

Operating from offices in Rouen, Caen, Evreux and two offices in Le Havre, Demolin is also part of the Vectis Group.

Mazoyer is located in Gevrey Chambertin, near to Rouen. It was formed more than 30 years ago and has established itself as a key player in the materials handling sector within this region of France.
