Already installed on the ecological cleaning of cars without water, the Sineo company, based in Fenouillet (Haute-Garonne), near Toulouse, is pushing the eco-responsible concept even further with its used vehicle reconditioning workshop. Opened in February, this 2,000m2 factory extends the life of every used car and puts it back in good working order in the automotive market.
A role of reintegration company
“We mainly work with dealerships who spend around 60 to 90 days doing this work on their fleet, while we condition the vehicle in around ten days,” emphasizes Caroline Bocquet, manager of Sineo Toulouse. Here, it is the car that moves from workshop to workshop, and not the men. This requires expertise in bodywork, mechanics, geothermal control, painting, then interior and exterior aesthetic preparation. The car is finished by the photo studio on a turntable before leaving for the shipper area. “
For more fluidity, customers have access to the software to know when their vehicles will be reconditioned. A 2.0 garage that wants to develop the sector to be more respectful of the environment but also of people since Sineo proudly displays its role as a reintegration company. Thus 14 employees, out of the 72 in the company, are on a two-year reintegration contract to put them back on the job market. Almost 90% of them find a job after this period of reintegration. The new used reconditioning activity involves 2,500 vehicles per year.
