The two French refrigerated transport providers Antoine and Salesky announced on 27 December 2006 their plans to invest a sum totaling between 2.5 million EUR and 3 million EUR in a 5.5 hectare site in the Pas de Calais department of France. This project will create 220 jobs within three years between January 2007 and January 2010.

The new facility will include buildings equipped with refrigerators serving as depots for products from the whole country, and will also serve as a rest station for drivers, as well as a pick-up point from which local drivers will deliver products to traders.

The new site will enable two companies to share certain investments in a joint venture. Salesky has reported a turnover of 25 million EUR in 2006, and is targeting an increase to 30 million EUR as from 2007. The Antoine group, comprising 13 companies, announced a turnover of 60 million EUR.
