The new "Guaranteed Made in France" Renault Trucks range

Renault Trucks has earned the “Guaranteed Made in France” label for its Renault Trucks T, C, K, D and D WIDE vehicles. Awarded by the ProFrance Association, whose Chairman is Yves Jégo, this is the only label certifying that a product comes from France. This Guaranteed Made in France designation reasserts Renault Trucks’ ties with France and highlights the expertise of its production sites at Blainville-sur-Orne, Bourg-en-Bresse and Lyon.

The history of Renault Trucks began in 1894 when the first Berliet engine was unveiled. Since then, Renault Trucks has never left France and continues to produce its vehicles there to this day. The Guaranteed Made in France label awarded by the ProFrance Association is the recognition, by an official, independent body, of this fact. For Renault Trucks customers, it is a guarantee that the Renault Trucks T, C, K, D and D WIDE vehicles have been produced in France and that by buying Renault Trucks vehicles, they are contributing to the French manufacturing sector. The label also reasserts Renault Trucks’ ties with France and highlights the expertise of its production plants at Blainville-sur-Orne (Calvados), Bourg-en-Bresse (Ain) and Lyon (Rhône). This designation will be an element of pride for the entire workforce, emphasising the national aspect of their day-to-day work. Renault Trucks vehicles are the only trucks to have been awarded this certification.

ProFrance bases its certification on two main criteria which must both be met. On the one hand, all the major stages in creating and producing the product must take place in France. Furthermore, at least 50% of the product’s unit cost price must have been spent in France. Applications are studied by certifying bodies, qualified to deliver the designation and selected by ProFrance. 

The Guaranteed Made in France certification was awarded to Renault Trucks in February 2014 for three years with annual verifications.
