European leader in refrigerated vehicle and container rental

Developing rational alternatives

For Petit Forestier, product innovation cannot be separated from high quality refrigeration.

To us, designing solutions for tomorrow that are compatible with the refrigeration process is synonymous with responsibility. Saving energy, improving productivity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, avoiding noise pollution and innovating cannot be allowed to compromise high quality refrigeration, which remains non-negotiable.

In this context, our mission is to give our customers sustainable and economically viable choices.

Developing a new product requires the groundwork to be done with the manufacturers and the fine tuning with the customers. Petit Forestier plays an important role in the production of prototypes by the manufacturers: our research department gives its recommendations and it is the combination of technology, the limitations and the requirements that results in the creation of a product which is innovative and results in quality refrigeration. Petit Forestier has won a number of awards for its research work and holds numerous patents.

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.
