A little history

  • Creation

     

    The company's origins date back to 1840 with the creation by Édouard Grospiron of a regional horse-drawn carriage delivery business.

  • SHIFT TOWARDS THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE

     

     

    In 1990, the Grospiron International trademark was registered with the aim of conquering the rapidly expanding international moving market.

  • Lyon

     

    In 1997, the company strengthened its structure and created a second establishment in Lyon to cover the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region.

  • Nice

     

    In 1999, it acquired Compagnie Générale de Déménagement in Nice, to expand its activity in the south of France.

  • Toulouse

     

    In 2001, the group's expansion policy continued with the creation of an office in Toulouse, to meet ever-increasing demand in the southwest region.

  • Marseille

     

    In 2006, Grospiron International opened a new branch in Marseille to facilitate access to the infrastructure of the port of Fos.

  • Lille

     

    In 2011, in a constant effort to develop and improve the service provided to its customers, the company also set up in Lille.

  • Hong Kong

     

    In 2014, in response to the significant increase in our operations in Asia/Pacific, we opened a new office in Hong Kong, in charge of supervising our activities in the region while bringing us closer to our customers.

  • Dubaï

     

    In 2016, a new location in Dubaï in line with the development strategy put in place several years ago, which gives our group the ability to provide global assistance to all our customers.

    In 2018, Grospiron Solutions Entreprises, a company transfer specialist, completed the range of services offered to our customers.

  • Grospiron Fine Art

     

    In 2018, our range of services was further expanded with the creation of Grospiron Fine Art , which specialises in the packaging and transport of works of art.

  • New Logo

     

    In 2019a new logo was created to replace the one designed nearly 30 years ago.

     

    This is a change in keeping with an overall modernisation.

    Without fundamentally changing the brand identity.
