In his native department, Finistère, Cobredia wants to drop into its pocket three Toyota sites belonging to the Horizon Auto group.
Cobredia wants to increase its weight in the Toyota network: the group led by François Picard has notified the Competition Authority of its intention to take over the entire Horizon Auto Group , led by Jean-Luc Le Corre.
The latter owns three Toyota sites in Finistère (29) in Quimper, Concarneau and Carhaix. The group, which employs 35 people, sold 650 new vehicles and about 400 second-hand vehicles to private customers last year. All for a turnover of 18.5 million euros.
This new operation would allow the Cobredia group to strengthen its Toyota license plate in Finistère and more generally in Brittany, having bought the Toyota and FCA business in Brest and Morlaix from the Sofiland group in mid-March 2018 , but also, last June, three business deals. Toyota owned by Jean-Marc Rizzon, leader of Rizzon Automobiles , located in St-Brieuc, Guingamp and Lannion.
The operator would thus count five concessions in Finistère alone, three in Côtes-d’Amor and three others in Morbihan. ” We aim to sell 4,300 new Toyota vehicles year-round thanks to our acquisitions, ” says François Picard. And so to consolidate its position as the 6th most important distributor in the French network of Toyota.
As a reminder, last year, the Cobredia group was behind the sale of 3,127 new Toyota vehicles with a total volume of 13,214 units and a turnover of 558 million euros.
