Sortimo France and Gruau, one of the largest coachbuilders worldwide, have grown into one company in January 2016. The companies are each 50 percent involved in the Joint Venture “Sortimo by Gruau”. The companies are also cooperating very closely together in Germany. One mutual concept will be presented at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Trade Fair on the Sortimo stand in hall 13, C40.
Sortimo by Gruau
The Joint Venture called “Sortimo by Gruau” has existed since the beginning of 2016 in France. This partnership was established on the competences of two worldwide successful companies with the same targets and visions. The target of this strategical merger is to bundle know-how and experience in order to provide integral concepts for the customer.
Gruau by Sortimo
An integration of Gruau products at Sortimo in the German speaking area will take place in the coming year: the new joint product line will be incorporated into Sortimo’s product portfolio. The first concept, the ProCargo Box, is a van body from the coachbuilder Gruau with components from Sortimo and the result is a multi-functional cargo solution for vans, which integrates seamlessly into the Sortimo Ecosystem. Products and cross-system solutions will be developed through the cooperation, which will provide the customer with maximum usage from one source. The innovative ProCargo Box is equipped with the Sortimo ProSafe load securing system and can of course be complemented and expanded at any time by means of the flexible Sortimo racking systems. As a result the customer receives an integral and professional cargo management from one source.
