In the year 1960 in France, two brothers, Claude and Edmond Faure decided to launch their small wood transport company. At the same time, Jean-Marie Machet took the reins of his family-run transport company. The meeting of Mireille Machet and Claude Faure was to affect the destiny of the two families. Their marriage brought about a close professional relationship which led to the creation of the 'Faure & Machet' transport company in 1967. At that time, they only had 12 staff and 7 vehicles.
The company expanded rapidly. In 1976 it already had 90 employees and 75 vehicles. But it was in 1982 that the company really took off. The founders' entrepreneurial spirit and dynamism were instrumental in gaining the trust of the Mars group. 'Faure & Machet' set-up warehousing as a strategic activity, and twenty years later, the company had 300 staff members and 38,000 m2 of warehousing space in France.
The small company from Lorraine becomes an international logistics' giant, located in 14 countries and now 62% of its revenue comes from countries other than France.
