Sustainable development - at the heart of Codimatra’s corporate DNA

Reusable parts or even second-hand spare parts are what make Codimatra a unique company in Europe. Since 1979, our company has been committed to promoting and giving new life to components from our construction equipment.

Equipment rental is, by its very nature, an act geared towards sustainable development. According to a study published recently by the European Rental Association (ERA), companies can improve their sustainable development by opting to rent equipment instead of buying it. We share this point of view with the ERA – rented equipment is used more often, meaning it is also used more effectively. Environmental issues are becoming increasingly relevant for French companies. The rental sector experienced growth in the first quarter of 2017. Companies are starting to develop their environmental profiles now with a view towards the years ahead, but at Codimatra, we are able to make our contribution right away through our comprehensive rental service, a service aimed at helping our clients reduce their carbon footprint.

Sustainable development promotes synergy between manufacturers, renters and clients

According to the ERA study, dialogue between manufacturers and rental companies has encouraged the former to take performance in terms of sustainable development into account when it comes to designing their equipment.

In order to offer our clients an attractive range of equipment, we have begun acquiring low energy consumption vehicles as well as hybrid vehicles such as our Komatsu HB215LC.

These hybrid Komatsu diggers are probably the most reliable and, from a technological point of view, the most advanced on the construction market. At Codimatra, we pay close attention to their “repairable, recyclable and sustainable development” aspects; a machine capable of carrying out its work in an optimum way while cutting down on fuel costs and, as a result, reducing the overall carbon footprint of the work site, is an ideal machine for our clients.

Our rental department will be on-hand to provide you with any information or advice you may require.
