How can we create links between the workshops of the Astre Group and our referenced partners? To meet this need, the Group’s Purchasing Department has been organising an annual challenge for mechanical workshops since 2021.
Last year, a photo competition “Atelier en folie” was launched among the integrated garages of the Astre Group. The objective? Share a photo taken in the workshop with an atypical setting. A total of 12 Astre companies and more than 49 participants took part in this challenge. Three winners stood out: Chavigny Transport, Kleyling and Rautureau Transport. Our partners, Berner France, as well as the Astre Group’s referents presented their prizes directly to their companies.
This year, and for the second year running, the Purchasing Department is repeating the initiative with a new challenge, in collaboration with five of our referenced partners: Alliance Automotive Group France, Würth Group, Berner France, AUTODISTRIBUTION and Ital Express. Their mission will be to visit all the Astriens workshops of the Group present in France in order to give them the clues in person. These clues will allow the workshops to guess the theme of the photo to be taken as a team and shared with us.
Beyond the fun and participative spirit that characterises our challenges, these events are a real opportunity for our partners to meet a maximum number of mechanical workshops in a fun context. A great visibility that the Group offers them in order to encourage long-lasting partnerships.
On March 27th, Astre was present at the 35th carrier’s trophy ceremony in a “MAGICAL” place, the Parc des Princes, with more than 350 guests.
The programme included a private tour of the stadium, a cocktail party and, of course, the awards ceremony, with in particular the nomination of Transports Barbero, a member of the Astre Group, for the Carrier of the Year award.
