July 2018: Sarens is proud to highlight new depot openings around the world, including a new facility near Paris. This new depot is located in Pierrelaye, a village just outside of Paris in the Île-de-France region.
The new facility will serve as a crane depot and offer a host of sales, operations, maintenance, and planning services. The equipment available on site will include 15 mobile hydraulic cranes with a 50-700T capacity, as well as their auxiliaries.
Because the majority of French projects over the next several years are taking place in the Île-de-France, this depot is ideally positioned to serve them. These projects include the Grand Paris metro extension, preparation for the 2024 Summer Olympics, and other major civil works (BTP) initiatives like power, canal, and tunnel projects.
The Paris depot will provide direct access to 70% of France BTP activities, and it’s expected that 95% of its activities will be in the Île-de-France region. Sarens is already supplying major projects in the region with lattice boom cranes up to 280T.
The Group is pleased to be opening this new depot in the coming weeks, and to be building on the Sarens tradition of carefully listening to clients and proposing the safest, most creative, and technically optimised solutions backed by global expertise. In the coming weeks, Sarens’ key account managers for the region will be available to assist clients who wish to make use of the services available at this new depot.
