This year, PRODEX celebrates its 70th anniversary!
70 years of history, innovation and expertise where PRODEX remains your faithful partner to its professional and human values.
PRODEX is a French industrial company created in 1953. The factory is currently located in Bourgbarré on the Ile et Vilaine (35) in Brittany. A human-sized company, its core business is the design, manufacture and installation of conveyor systems, dynamic storage and order preparation furniture.
This beautiful story begins in the 50’s on the industrial site of Saint-Hilaire (45) where the company settled to manufacture metal shelving for stores.
Then in 1978, the PRODEX teams decided to follow the evolution of the market and to orient the factory towards a new concept, the “dynamic storage”. PRODEX diversifies in order to respond to the arrival of “logistics centers” and the boom in mass distribution.
In 1995, the production is transferred to another factory – the company moves in Brittany to Mordelles (35). The company was then acquired by the SAVOYE Group and was able to expand its range of equipment for logistics.
In 2010, PRODEX moves to the current production site in Bourgbarré (35), France. A modern and spacious site (2600 m2) with a land reserve of more than 3.5 ha, which enables to consider future developments. At the same time, PRODEX develops transitique solutions, to move from envelopes to pallets, ergonomic picking furniture, and storage furniture with drawers.
Creation of MAVENTIS group
In 2020, David Petit-Rouvès, owner of MAVIPAL (19-21), bought PRODEX. These two activities are very complementary since both companies are specialized in storage solutions. In 2021, he created the company DPA Global Solutions on the site of PRODEX (35), specialized in the conception of industrial automation solutions. Its purpose is to support PRODEX in the piloting and control techniques of the mechanical systems that 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.
In 2022, the family group was structured with the creation of the MAVENTIS brand. Its development continues with the acquisition of LAVAYSSIERE and Solution Métal, specialists in carterisation and sheet metal subcontracting.
MAVENTIS is the standard-bearer of the group’s know-how, serving the industry.
Today, the group is established on 5 sites, including 3 factories. This brings together a hundred employees for a consolidated turnover of 14.5 M€.
