Petit Forestier

Refrigeration vehicle rentals are the core business of Petit Forestier.
This service is managed by our subsidiaries that commercialise the vehicles, cabinets and containers, as well as refrigerated trailers.
With their own workshops, they are also in charge of all maintenance.


The Stricher subsidiaries rent out refrigerated vehicles for professionals, dry vehicles (home deliveries, parcel services, removals, ready-to-wear clothes, utilities etc.) and hygienic vehicles (hospitals, laundries, rental of linen etc.).

Lecapitaine is one of the leading European refrigerated vehicle body manufacturers.
The production site in Saint Lô specialises in making the refrigerated units that are mounted on the chassis of our vehicles. Thanks to its design department, Lecapitaine is able to make standard and made-to-measure products. They also offer custom built fittings for the inside and outside of refrigerated vehicles.
Lecapitaine Technic
Lecapitaine Technic makes its expertise available to all our domestic and international branches through its different sites. These sites take care of repairing vehicles that have sustained major damage or require renovation.
They are equipped specifically to deal with substantial coachwork, transmission systems and refrigeration units.
Our subsidiary Relec Froid manufactures, renovates and maintains refrigeration units for a part of our fleet of vehicles and containers.
FridgeToGo is the brand used to sell vehicles that have reached the end of their useful lives and are removed from the fleet. This subsidiary also sells second hand spare parts.
Our subsidiary FrigoWash, located at the national market of Rungis, is an ecological washing centre specialised in cleaning refrigerated and utility vehicles and HGVs.
Sustainable Development

A full time preoccupation

Looking resolutely to the future and concerned for the world of tomorrow, Petit Forestier attempts to integrate sustainable development into the daily life of the company and has responsible social, economic and environmental policies that take these challenges fully into account.

Our approach involves the implementation of corresponding practices and protocols in all areas of the business. We demand efforts by our suppliers and subcontractors, involve our employees and, in the eyes of public authorities and institutions, we represent a reliable partner. We respect and encourage regulations in the areas of the environment, labour and economic development, including in our international network. This strategy concerns all our services, products, purchases, properties, human resources…

The partnerships developed with manufacturers and institutions are just one illustration of our commitment. Our efforts also take the form of civic actions, initiating or participating in long term projects capable of producing benefits for the whole community.



For Petit Forestier, the choice of a supplier is based on ability, reliability and trust.
After signing an agreement, Petit Forestier issues a national listing for application in the French network and the international sites.

Petit Forestier favours loyal partnerships with its suppliers and, above and beyond a simple commercial arrangement, often works with suppliers in the early stages when launching new products.
