This industrial site completes an existing fleet of three centres in Europe: Donzère (France), Madrid (Spain) and Goole (UK).
As the first stage, once fully operational, this new 20,000 square metre centre will employ around 100 people and will enable the Group to respond to the strong acceleration of its sales in Belgium by refurbishing c.12,000 additional cars per year. Thanks to the know-how and expertise of Aramis Group, a pioneer in the reconditioning business since 2014, customers will benefit from reliable and guaranteed cars at the best price.
This inauguration is part of the Group's strategy to increase its refurbishment capacity in order to support the strong revenue growth in this segment (+42.1% in 20211).
Nicolas Chartier and Guillaume Paoli, co-founders2 of Aramis Group, say:
"The opening of this fourth centre marks a new stage in the Group's development. It is a fundamental part of Aramis Group's strategy to increase its reconditioning capacity in order to offer its customers reliable and affordable cars, and unparalleled satisfaction. This new centre in Antwerp integrates the Group's best know-how and demonstrates its ambition to offer a more virtuous model of individual mobility through its refurbished vehicles."
Aramis Group intends to continue expanding its refurbishment capacity with the opening of two additional centres in Europe in the coming months, in Nemours (France) and Hull (United Kingdom).
