The Group - Interview with the CEO

The creation of a Group

Why did you establish a Group?

The establishment of SALAMANDER Group is a key element in the history of FARE Trade and ACHATS Logis. More than simply being a transition, this alliance marks a turning point in the association of skills of two recognised specialists on their respective markets. FARE Trade is a specialist in industrial and technical purchasing, and Achats Logis is a specialist in the purchase of electrical components. On this consolidated basis, SALAMANDER Group is now ready to continue with its development in the most favourable conditions.

What can the Group do to bring efficiency?

SALAMANDER Group is continuing with its construction and is perfecting its organisation by implementing centralist governance and polling its support functions through the creation of a Shared Service Centre programme.

Why have the various companies in the Group retained an individual identity?

We specialise in technical purchasing and each of our entities corresponds to a particular market sector. Each of or structures has its own inherent specificity and culture allowing clients to retain reliable and dedicated milestones. It is through our differences that we are rich in recognised expertise and it is in our complementarity that we can stand out from our competitors.

Why are people so important to your Group?

It is first and foremost through the values carried by our people in our group that our strength lies. Our technical expertise, perseverance and high availability make our employees the key stakeholders in our success.
