  • SVP Transport vise une percée en Europe
    A l’origine connu essentiellement comme spécialiste des prestations urgentes en région parisienne, le groupe français SVP Transport amorce une double diversification. Elle est d’abord technique avec une ouverture vers des interventions de logistique à valeur ajoutée. Mais elle s’avère également géographique avec l’ambition d’intervenir sur le marché français de la province, puis de tenter une percée au niveau européen. Pour cela, les dirigeants du groupe accélèrent en croissance interne. Mais ils ajoutent que la rentabilité actuelle de l’entreprise, “très supérieure aux résultats moyens observés dans le secteur”, permet d’envisager de soutenir aussi le développement par des opérations de croissance externe.
