EUROPCAR – CONTINUES ITS GLOBAL EXPANSION
EUROPCAR announced in 2003 that it had taken the European number one position in the short-term car rental hire market.
Throughout 2004, the company gained even more ground through a continued focus on expansion and a philosophy of customer service to re-confirm its number one position.
The result was an impressive turnover of 1,172 million Euros, 32 million car-hire days sold, more than 230 000 vehicles purchased and a profit of almost 84 million Euros.
This commitment to expansion is not just limited to Europe, as the group continues to grow across the globe with a Europcar operation in three new countries on the American continent, five in Africa and one in Europe.
The most spectacular growth has taken place in the Asia – Pacific Rim, where a new agreement extends to nearly thirty countries in this major region of the world. And, it doesn’t stop there with major announcements expected later this year to confirm agreements in China and the United States.
