Groupe Poisson has developed a wide range of activities and services to satisfy the needs of the industrial, construction and environmental sectors. These activities include renting and maintaining construction equipment, undertaking civil engineering, earth-moving and geothermal works, installing roads and associated services, refurbishing and installing modular buildings, recycling materials, and also providing specialised temporary staff and professional training.
With Denis Poisson at its head, the group gives great importance to people, and puts the emphasis on skill levels. For these reasons, over the last 40 years clients have been fully satisfied by the quality and scope of the services provided by the SMBs (small & medium-sized businesses) which make up the group.
Through its three divisions – Rentals, Civil Works and Services – the Poisson Group is dedicated to providing all that is required for the successful implementation of its clients’ projects.
