Renault invests in a new €135 million spare parts
The new spare parts distribution center will continue to improve the
quality of service delivered to our end customers by offering
top-quality logistics to the worldwide Renault sales network.
The new center will allow Renault to make optimal use of its
warehouses and to cope with the increase in activity generated by
the 26 new models included in Renault Commitment 2009.
The new site located in Villeroy, France will help to support the
group's international growth.
By the end of 2007, the site will employ 300
people, including 240 local new recruits and 60 internal transfers
P. Blain, Executive VP for Sales: “This new
distribution center will allow Renault's parts activity to support the
commercial growth of the group, notably internationally, and the
deployment of Renault Commitment 2009 by offering better customer
service in terms of quality, cost and time.”
Renault has invested €135 million in this new
distribution center. The new facility is part of a major program to
create new centers or to extend the existing centers throughout the
world (Morocco, Russia, Romania, Slovenia, Algeria, Korea, etc.) in
order to cope with the growth of Renault's parts and accessories
These 27 central and local distribution centers
throughout the world provide Renault with a world-standard logistics
organization and significantly improve the parts service rate for our
end customers. This 150,000 m˛ warehouse is capable of receiving all of
the parts from numerous suppliers at a single Renault site that meets
the company's logistics standards, thereby reducing geographical
dispersion and improving logistics performance.
