Bâtimat : the logistics of success


BatimatBâtimat group is the number one building materials supplier in West Africa. With its 30 years of expertise, this small, family-run company that was set up in Dakar to trade building materials has become an international group with nearly 1,000 employees and a network of showrooms in 11 different countries.

For many years now, Bâtimat has relied on CENTRIMEX to forward its building materials and by-products to Africa. In particular, Bâtimat systematically uses our consolidation service for small orders leaving France.

Bâtimat : la logistique du succès

CEO of Bâtimat group, Mohamed Farès, was happy to comment on the trusting and long-lasting relationship that his company has established with CENTRIMEX over the years : « CENTRIMEX provides good logistics services and organises its teams well, in both Europe and Asia. We feel that the Senegal agency provides strong local involvement. Armelle Hashim, head of COLIMEX ’s Senegal agency, comes to see us regularly. Her team supports us in all circumstances. »

Among the values and strong points highlighted by Mr Farès, efficiency, responsiveness, availability, reliability and professionalism feature strongly, proving that these values, advocated by the CEO of CENTRIMEX Philippe Haddad, are widely applied throughout the company and perceived as such by the customers.

But the little extra detail that makes all the difference to the long-lasting partnership between Bâtimat and CENTRIMEX lies in mutual respect and interpersonal skills: « We really feel as though Bâtimat is a unique, special customer with long-standing and friendly ties between our two companies. CENTRIMEX is not only a vital player in the maritime transport sector but also, and more importantly, a reliable partner ».
