Ribbon cutting ceremony 

The traditional but no less symbolic ribbon cutting brought together various major personalities in the development of the Bansard International group. On the one hand, Patrick SEVIAN, the President of Sagemcom, a historical customer that the group has been supporting for nearly 15 years, and on the other hand, Simon PINTO and James GAGNE, respectively President of Bansard International and President-CEO of SEKO Logistics.

This morning, marked by conviviality, went on in the logistics workspace site of Ris-Orangis. It was also an opportunity for the members of the departments to share their vision of the future and to further strengthen their partnership: Brexit, E-Commerce, joint projects between Europe and the USA, opening of new warehouses, development of new geographical areas...

Visit of Ris-Orangis warehouse (France)

Operational for about six months now, the Ris-Orangis bonded and secured warehouse has a storage capacity of more than 12,000 m2. It enables us to support our customers (small and medium-sized businesses as well as large groups) in their growth and to offer new multi-format solutions adapted to the needs of e-commerce. Experienced teams take care of the entire logistics process:

  • Stocking, bonded storage, inventory management, input-output (FIFO type)
  • Loading management, optimization of container loads
  • Management of shipments, just-in-time deliveries, securing deadlines
  • Management of annual and rotating inventories, customizable inventories according to your criteria (article, supplier, etc.)
  • Integration of computer data transmitted by our customers
  • Use of a Warehouse Management System (WMS)


At the end of the visit of the Ris-Orangis warehouse, Joseph OUAKNINE, Logistics Manager of Ris-Orangis, along with the group's customers, mentioned several points, in particular: 

  • Strategic planning to optimize and simplify warehousing and storage operations 
  • Preventive measures (signage, training) to maximize employee comfort and reduce occupational risks. 
  • Packaging, customized storage and preparation of goods (labeling, temperature, dimensions) guaranteeing better control in real time until shipment to final customers. 

It was a morning full of exchanges, projects and sharing of ideas and solutions for our customers, our partners, the Management and all the employees of Bansard and SEKO who took advantage of this event to discuss the opportunities generated from the opening of this new logistics site and more globally, the improvement of the services of the group for all its clients. The best is yet to come!
