Roulaud Transports acquires the Coop Atlantique logistics site in Condat-sur-Vienne
Press release – June 18, 2020
Coop Atlantique confirms that it has found a buyer for its logistics warehouse in Condat-sur-Vienne (87).
At the beginning of 2020, the company announced the closure of its site, which will be effective from the end of June. It was also committed to carrying out an active search for a buyer. It’s done.
The choice fell on a regional company: Roulaud Transports, present in Saint-Junien and Saint-Laurent-sur-Gorre. The latter will acquire the site and initiate a new activity in September. “The purpose of this investment is to rationalize and consolidate our logistics activity locally,” explains Laurence Roulaud, president of the company. “This site will be an additional asset to create new business opportunities and support the needs of our current and future customers. ”
5 job creations will be available on the various company sites (Condat-sur-Vienne, Saint-Junien, Saint-Laurent-sur-Gorre), over a period of twelve months. Priority will be given to former Coop Atlantique employees.
In addition, as part of the job protection plan implemented by the cooperative, employees will also be offered jobs in the stores that Coop Atlantique operates in the region.
For those who do not wish to work in a store, a reclassification leave of 14 months is planned, during which they will be accompanied to promote a return to work as quickly as possible. Finally, for those who are less than 40 months from retirement, an exemption from activity will be possible with maintenance of the conditions of remuneration.
