What do our partners worldwide think about Point S?
Our volumes are –all things considered- small on a global scale. It is therefore essential, or even vital, for us to create alliances in order to preserve our profit margins through efficient negotiations. Our suppliers are present on a global scale and we can’t just stay local and adopt a very regional approach!
Since its creation in 1971 in France, Point S has always managed to strike the right balance between its member independence and a strong network policy. Point S has grown both in France and internationally not only as a purchasing group but also as a renowned brand recognised by our fleet customers and consumers, reflecting the values of professionalism and high quality service in our points of sale.
Point S international contracts have helped to consolidate and facilitate our dealings with our supplier’s local representatives. The international support of Point S Development is both an additional tool for managing existing local partnerships and an opportunity for the diversification of our brand portfolio.]
In South Africa the tire market is mainly steered by manufacturer controlled networks. Our group decided to adopt a new approach which consists in federating independently owned points of sale under a common banner. Through our partnership with Point S we have benefited from the image of a long term existing trademark and the credibility of an international network that shares the same values as ours.
