Julien Guez and Alexandre Beaumont have two names that have resonated for almost 40 years in the Maine et Loire. Their two companies, respectively created in 1977 and 1986 by their parents, were taken over by the new generation in 2019. They have since decided to join forces to carry out a major development project. The group thus formed will achieve a turnover of 10 million euros next year for approximately 2,500 convoys.
In 1993, the year the sector was opened up to competition, many funeral professionals chose to leave the fold of the national operator. This period marked a turning point in this universe, which saw the emergence of numerous entrepreneurial projects. They all shared a common vision, that of spreading excellence and protecting the values of respect for the deceased, families and rites while maintaining independence from any institution.
30 years later and after a successful passing of the torch, Julien Guez and Alexandre Beaumont have retained these values. Accompanied by the teams of PAX Corporate Finance, they are progressing in the constitution of a first rate group by becoming the leader of the department.
Means united in the service of a common vision.
Before considering a capital merger, the managers went through a very operational phase of pooling technical, material and human resources. As the two companies’ historical locations are close but complementary, a central logistics site was inaugurated in Tiercé in September. This site will optimise the flow of resources for all the group’s activities in the region.
