Founded in 2003 by Jean-Dominique Poinat, the Axe group, based in Villefranche-sur-Saône (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region), is a specialist in niche logistics.
Initiative & Finance's investment in the Axe group helped finance organic growth and pursue an ambitious external growth strategy. As a consequence, the group has substantially increased its revenues, which have climbed from €1.5 million to more than €16 million in the space of a few years. At the same time, the Axe group has continued to expand its national presence, with 8 warehouses boasting a combined total of more than 30,000 m2 of storage space.
Today, the Axe group is organized around several business lines (IT, industry, marketing and sales promotion, e-commerce).
