GEFCO Group announces its opening in Greece

French GEFCO Group, a global player in industrial and automotive logistics, has officially inaugurated its Greek subsidiary, bringing its recognised know-how in global logistics solutions designed to support manufacturers.
“As a company with a unique expertise in the management and optimisation of complex supply chains, we are happy to bring our expertise in integrated logistics as well as our ability to achieve short and long-term objectives in terms of economic performance, service level, and quality, to support our Greek customers’ development,” said Luc Nadal, Chairman of the Management Board of GEFCO Group.
By setting up a subsidiary in Greece, a country with dynamic potential in the region, GEFCO strengthens its footprint in Southeastern Europe, a region where the Group has maintained a presence historically. The country offers an ideal location between Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
Greek industrial production has shown constant growth in recent years, with leading companies in the food and tobacco processing, textile, pharmaceutical, chemical, mining, petroleum and metal production sectors industry.
“GEFCO aims to strengthen its competitiveness and presence in the Greek market and is expecting to nearly double its turnover in 2017. We also intend to transfer our many decades of logistics experience to local companies, thus contributing to the growth and development of the country,” said Fabien Gauchet, General Manager of GEFCO Greece.
