WHY LE CARRÉ GIE?
Our head office and warehouse are based near Rouen. We were given the opportunity to join Le Carré des Aviateurs in 2013 and so build closer relations with the country’s main importers. The geographical location enables us to meet our clients more easily. When the GIE was launched, we decided to join so that we could interact with main drivers in the sector and also to give us the chance to attract new clients and boost our reputation. The strength of this GIE lies in the diversity of its member companies. A distributor coming to Le Carré des Aviateurs can leave with almost all of his product offering!
