On the agenda: discussions and lectures on innovation and test-driving new vehicles

Colombes, 19 April 2018 – On 10, 11, 12 and 13 April in Montlhéry, FRAIKIN held thefirst edition of Connection Days, an international event that brought together the group’s teams, strategic partners, customers and prospects.

People and sharing have always been at the heart of FRAIKIN’s success. This congenial event was held in that spirit, with the purpose of highlighting the knowledge and expertise of the Group and its teams. Through one-on-one discussions, lectures on specific topics and vehicle test-drives, attendees got to experience the true FRAIKIN treatment.


The FRAIKIN Group is a European leader in long-term industrial and commercial vehicle leasing. As such, the Group organised this one-of-a-kind international event to underscore its position as a multi-specialist providing the broadest range of services on the market.


In all, more than 800 participants from 15 countries took advantage of the opportunity to finally meet face-to-face with those they work with regularly and to learn more about fundamental issues, of concern both now and in the future. Following is an account of the highlights from this innovative event.


FRAIKIN chose to hold the first iteration of this event at the Linas-Montlhéry race track.

Customers and prospects joined the Group’s technical and sales teams for 4 activity-packed days:

  • Explore over 60 vehicles on display, drive the legendary track, both electric and gas vehicles represented, test out on-board telematics.
  • Take in 8 lectures and workshops on alternative energies, different kinds of chassis and vehicle features, telematics, hydraulics, cold production, tyre management and safety.


“We are fortunate to have built long-term relationships with our partners. We work together, constantly innovating to better serve our customers. With a relationship built on such a solid foundation of trust, co-organising Connection Days was a no-brainer for us”, says Philippe Cuoc, Head of the Group Procurement and the Supply Chain and project lead.


 “FRAIKIN is driven by an ambition to provide the best possible support to our customers, offering the services best adapted to their specific needs. Given that motivation, holding an event for our partners, employees and customers to get to know one another was a natural fit for FRAIKIN”, explains Pierre-Louis Colin, CEO of FRAIKIN Group.



With seventy years of experience and a turnover of 683 M€ in 2017, the FRAIKIN Group, European leader in commercial and commercial vehicle fleet management solutions, has the largest fleet of multi-brand and multi-functional vehicles (58,000 vehicles including 52,000 directly owned and 6,000 in fleet management) and the largest dedicated and integrated network with 180 branches throughout Europe (France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, United Kingdom, Spain, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Netherlands, Italy and Russia), as well as in Saudi Arabia. FRAIKIN, with 2,800 employees, is much more than a rental company: it supports its customers in defining solutions adapted to their needs and expresses know-how that is always as close as possible to their requirements for responsiveness and flexibility.
