BUSINESS IN FRANCE

Services and solutions

INDRA, the leading player in auto recycling in France processes nearly 340,000 vehicles per year in its network (34% of the market). 

This success is due to the convergence of four complementary fields of expertise (sourcing, networking, engineering, dismantling) and a sharing philosophy.
This expertise enables new development paths for the end-of-life vehicle sector to be explored.

MARKETING OF SECOND-HAND PARTS

Whilst the new French Energy Transition Law directs that automobile repairers offer their customer parts from the circular economy (January 2017), INDRA AUTOMOBILE RECYCLING is committed to the circular economy and in 2013 started the “PRECIS” platform.
PRECIS
An on-line service for pooling stocks of re-usable spare parts, enabling them to be marketed and made available to repair professionals.
“PRECIS” incorporates demanding specifications including 3 ranges of second-hand parts of different qualities (Premium, Medium and Eco).

in the Premium and
Medium ranges.
6 months for the ECO range.
