Testimony by Stéphane MOUTON, in charge of upstream real estate for Groupement des Mousquetaires

We needed new, more modern warehouses responding to the latest standards, more energy efficient and flexible. Due to the requirements of our business, our logistics properties must be able to store dry, cool, frozen and non-food products while adapting to our changing markets. We chose GSE after working on our real estate overhaul for 1 ½ years.

GSE has demonstrated advanced expertise and engineering skills. Their technical teams were also made available to us and they supported us in our project on a daily basis. They also fully understood our desire to rationalise construction costs and offered us appropriate solutions.
