On January 30, 2019, Reftrade, market leader in the rental of refrigerated containers and portable cold storage and semi-permanent assembled structures, sold 100% of its shares to the Petit Forestier group.
Reftrade was founded in 1984 when it focused solely on the sale of refrigerated containers.

Reftrade experienced significant growth in the rental of refrigerated containers and semi-permanent portable cold storages in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and the rest of Europe.
