CEO’s Message

We’ve been hearing for several years now about the globalization of the economy. Changes have been felt not only with the concentration in the tire and parts industry but also in the distribution within each continent (if not yet globally), especially in Europe and North America. In this context our ambition to turn Point S into a global brand and network is even more relevant today and is about to come true.

The global expansion of our network, which is growing year on year, is key to our independence,

an essential value shared by all the Point S members worldwide. Our global dimension also supports the development of our private brand ranges that raise customer loyalty and bring our members a high retail margin.
The Point S trademark has been established over 4 decades ago. The sustainability of our brand relies on our capacity to anticipate and adapt to market changes while preserving our professional and human values. Rest assured that we will continue to work in this direction to address market changes.

MISSION STATEMENT

Mission

Our mission is to preserve the independence of our network and ensure the profitability of our members. In order to achieve these objectives our strategy is based on 3 main pillars:

  • optimized purchases thanks to our international negotiation power,
  • strong sell-out support through marketing campaigns, visibility in media,
  • innovative solutions which meet the challenges of our industry.

VISION

In a fast moving world, where changes have been felt not only by concentration in the tire and parts industry but also by distribution within each continent, we firmly believe that independent dealers can only survive by teaming up together.

The success of the Point S business model is, and will remain, the result of our ability to achieve the right balance between our dealers’ independence and the interest of the whole group.
Together we’re stronger!

VALUES

Despite our corporation’s international dimension, we have always kept a human dimension based on the following common values which have been key to our success:

  • an entrepreneurial and passionate spirit,
  • a common long-lasting experience shared by all Point S national managers,
  • direct contact with our members,
  • a customer-oriented culture with the highest quality standards.

DEVELOPMENT

Point S Development has always put strong emphasis on the international development of the network. This strategy is driven by several factors:

  • our implementation in a new market increases the network global potential sales volume which in turn enhances our cooperation with our preferred suppliers.
  • an improved global coverage allows us to best meet the needs of our key accounts-mostly international companies present in several countries or continents.
  • a new member country means additional expertise and experience readily available for the other countries.
  • our worldwide presence also supports the global visibility of our trademark toward our end customers
