Wecovi takes over the French Kits Vacances

March 28, 2018

From 3 April 2018, Wecovi will acquire all activities of its French distributor Kits Vacances SARL. This takeover also means the establishment of a subsidiary in France for the Dutch family owned company; Wecovi  SARL. The employees of Kits Vacances will be employed by Wecovi SARL.

This acquisition gives Kits Vacances and Wecovi the opportunity to further develop its customer base in France and to serve their international accounts located in France.  The cooperation with Wecovi has always been a pleasant and growing one since the start of Kits Vacances in 2008. The large majority of guest sets that Kits Vacances sells in France are being manufactured by Wecovi. “For me the acquisition by Wecovi is a logical next step” motivates Audrey Terrasse, owner of Kits Vacances.

The leisure industry is one of the strategic markets for Wecovi. Currently, Wecovi has subsidiaries in Germany and in the United Kingdom. The establishment of an own subsidiary at the most popular holiday destination, France, is therefore of strategic importance.

Managing Director and owner of Wecovi, Hans Paul Visscher explains: “There are many opportunities in the leisure industry in France. By joining forces we will be able to offer a more extensive range of products to our French customers and we can better respond to the needs of  the French market”.

From 3 April all activities will be continued by Wecovi SARL. Wecovi SARL will be located at the current address of Kits Vacances in Marseille. Customers will be able to continue to purchase their current products, which were already produced by Wecovi.  

The colleagues of Kits Vacances will be employed by Wecovi SARL. The French subsidiary will be managed by Audrey Terrasse. Claire Sépulcre will remain as sales assistant. Wecovi SARL will be responsible for all sales activities within the leisure market for France. The office hours are from 9:00 – 18:00 form Monday till Thursday and from 9:00 – 17:00 on Fridays.

Ordering online is possible through the French Wecovi Service website www.wecoviservice.com.
