Prodex company was created in 1953 in Paris. It was decided to acquire the industrial site of Saint Hilaire (45) at the end of the 1950’s in order to manufacture metallic shelvings for shops and retails.
Beginning of the production
Manufacture of classic industrial shelving
and tools displays.
The PRODEX teams decide to follow the market evolution and to orient the company toward a new concept, the “dynamic storage”.
PRODEX diversifies in order to respond to the arrival of the “logistics centers”; and the boom of the mass distribution.
The production was transferred to another factory – the company moves to Mordelles (35) in Brittany, France.
Takeover of the company PRODEX by SAVOYE group.
PRODEX expands its range in order to respond to an overall customer request and offer a complete range of equipments for the logistics.
PRODEX launches the manufacture of dynamic storage furniture for the “order picking”
In 2010, PRODEX moves to the current production site in Bourgbarré (35), France. The installation on a modern and spacious site (2600 m2) with a land reserve of more than 3.5 ha, enables to consider future developments. The location near the Rennes-Angers axis provides flexibility for shippings.
At the same time, PRODEX develops transitique solutions, to move from envelopes to pallets, ergonomic picking furniture, and storage furniture with drawers.
Acquisition of PRODEX by the independent MAVIPAL
Two very complementary activities, both companies being specialised in storage solutions.
MAVIPAL is mainly active with industrialists, SMBs and large groups, for example in aeronautics, food industry or to equip warehouses and shop reserves in supermarkets.
With the acquisition of PRODEX, its field of activity opens up more directly to players in logistics and industrial logistics, and with their commercial and operational complementarity, the two companies have a fairly similar profile: years of experience, turnover, organisation, production in France, integrated design office, internal assembly teams.
Creation of DPA Global Solutions on the PRODEX site in June 2021. This company specialised in the design of industrial automation solutions aims to support PRODEX in the piloting and control techniques of the mechanical systems it designs and manufactures.
This structure is the result of an association with DPA in Quetigny (21), and enables the latter’s know-how and experience to be integrated.
