A Family Network
Created in 1978 by Jacques and Marie-Paule FETIS, the FETIS Network is led since 2014 by Damien FETIS, its President.
The FETIS Network is a family network, made up of autonomous companies that share a common Vision, Values and Strategy. Its capital is held by the FETIS family as well as the Managers, which allow stability and freedom in the conduct of its long-term strategy.
Based in Nantes, France, in the Loire-Atlantique region (44), the FETIS network has developed in line with the evolution of its businesses. From its beginning as a local distributor of Perkins engines, the FETIS Network has developed its activities over the years. Today, it is recognised by its customers as an international supplier of systems for the entire life cycle of machines in three different areas of activity: mobility, energy and industry.

The Network, in its development strategy, is working on reducing its environmental footprint for future generations.
Constantly evolving since its creation, the FETIS Network is continuously investing in innovations to serve its customers by offering them adapted solutions.
