Renault Trucks has announced its plans for the construction of a global spare parts distribution centre at its Saint-Priest site in Lyon, France. 

The new positive energy building will involve an investment of €132m ($142.23m). 

Renault Trucks president Bruno Blin said: “The construction of our new logistics platform in Lyon is a strategic investment for Renault Trucks.  

“It strengthens the long-term viability of our site and reflects our desire to build a solid, sustainable future based on innovation, offering new long-term opportunities for current and future employees.” 

Spanning 46,000m², the new building is expected to replace the current centre in Vénissieux. 

The current century-old facility in Vénissieux is said to no longer meet the environmental and operational standards required for logistics activities.

Renault Trucks noted that after considering various options, it chose to relocate its logistics platform to the Saint-Priest site, adjacent to its axle manufacturing plant. 

The axle plant is also scheduled for relocation to Vénissieux, near the company’s engine manufacturing facility. 

Over the next three years, work will be undertaken to transfer the new logistics platform to the old plant site.  

This will involve demolishing the existing building and decontaminating the soil, adhering to the principle of zero soil artificialisation.  

The new building will accommodate more than 500 employees and feature a flexible, scalable warehouse, a fully automated area for small parts, and a dedicated battery storage area. 

All facilities within the building will operate on 100% renewable electricity, eliminating the use of fossil fuels. 

Construction on the new facility is expected to begin in 2026 and the centre is anticipated to open in 2028.
