A letter from the executive office …

« Competitiveness : our key to success ! »

The company’s aim is the competitiveness, that is to say: to keep on guaranteeing an irreproachable service in an increasingly competitive sector. We attach great importance to the drivers’ training and the constant renewal of our fleet in order to be in line, in a very short term, with the last technologies concerning gas emissions.

The biggest international transport companies are looking for our kind of job more and more, because we allow them to focus on their job in letting us manage the technical and social aspects in relation with their activities.

Our advantages, know-how, and a denoted competitiveness enable us to provide our clients with prices allowing them to be more competitive on the market in turn, with a quality service. Our success is largely due to our clients’ success but to the mastery in our activity in all its details too.

The ecology and the environment protection are the top priorities of our activity. 5.73 pounds of CO2 are produced for each litre of diesel used. As responsible haulier, we cannot ignore this aspect. We endeavour to modernise our fleet, to train our drivers in order to adopt a clean driving behaviour. Keep in mind the aim of carrying out more responsible actions and always limiting a little more the impact of our activities on the environment.

Camions d`autrefois N3

This diecast Unic`s model represent one of legendary truck in France from the 60th years in a livery of the french producer of aliments for animals “Sanders”. It is issued under N3 of the french collection “Camions d`autrefois” by Altaya edition.

Unic was founded by Georges Richard after he left Richard-Brasier. In 1905 Richard had a meeting with the entrepreneur-financier Baron Henri de Rothschild and obtained funding for the creation of the “société anonyme des automobiles Unic“, based at Puteaux. The objective was to manufacture “unique” (rather than mainstream) vehicles, and at the start the company made only light cars and taxis with two-cylinder and four-cylinder engines.
The taxi business would remain important to Unic for more than three decades, while Rothschild’s steady financial support through good times and bad, provided stability which sustained the business, critically during the immediate post-war years.  ZU 122 Bihan_web

In 1922 the firm introduced a three-ton truck, called the Unic MSC, which marked the start of a switch towards production of larger commercial vehicles. 1922 was also the year when the founder of Unic, Georges Richard, died while awaiting transfer to a Paris clinic, following a motor accident en route to Rouen. Georges Dubois, hitherto in charge of vehicle testing, took on responsibility for the business.

After 1938 Unic concentrated in the truck business, being one of the leading French makes.

In 1952, the firm was taken over by Simca, headed by Henri Pigozzi, who wanted a commercial vehicle production unit. Trucks of this period are commonly referred to as Unic-Simca trucks.
In 1956 the French arm of the Swiss truck manufacturer Saurer was taken over.
In 1966 Unic joined the Fiat Group.
In 1975 a holding company named IVECO was established covering truck and bus brands such as Fiat, OM, Lancia, UNIC and Magirus.
In 1976 UNIC-FIAT S.A. became UNIC S.A.
In 1992 IVECO UNIC S.A. changed its name to IVECO FRANCE S.A.
