RESCOOZ®: emergency PGS pallet shelters

PGS reverse Rescooz emergency shelter

The PGS Group (Palettes Gestion Services), the French leader on the wood pallet market, and SOFRINNOV, a company from Toulouse, France, and the designer of RESCOOZ® emergency shelters, are developing a promising partnership, to benefit a humanitarian cause.
Not a day goes by where refugees’ living conditions in humanitarian camps do not make headlines: precarious living conditions, thousands of men, women, and children in tents, in all kinds of weather… How can be they housed correctly and maintain their dignity? To this end, PGS, a corporate group from Normandy, France had provided an answer by partnering with a young business form Toulouse, SOFRINNOV, founded in late 2014, specialized in the design and development of Green and Clean Technology products and services. The latter will market from next March RESCOOZ®, an emergency shelter kit of 25m2 designed using pallet wood. «  We assemble the pallets like Lego® pieces. Easily assembled, it only takes a day for one person to build the shelter by joining together the wood pallet pieces. It’s very simple and it enables refugees to build a roof to protect them and their family…  » explained Jean-Claude ESCRIVA, the founder of SOFRINNOV, at the origin of the RESCOOZ® brand. It is quite natural that SOFRINNOV turned to the French market leader, the PGS Group, for the supply of wood pallets necessary for the manufacturing of emergency shelters: «  It was important for me to find a reliable partner. I met with Jean-Louis LOUVEL, PGS Chairman and Founder of PGS » he said. «  We were immediately won over by this wonderful project because the refugees are directly involved in building themselves the shelter. We could only agree with it. The respect of others and human dignity are among the key values that we hold dearly at PGS  » stated Jean-Louis LOUVEL. In addition to supplying pallets, SOFRINNOV may also benefit from the logistics support from PGS for the massification of components (crossties, pallets, OSB) and global shipping. Light, quick to assemble, safe, cost-effective, eco-friendly, recyclable… RESCOOZ® provides a variety of benefits which were awarded on 28 January during the 9th MIDINNOV innovation show in the Languedoc Roussillon Midi Pyrénées  Region: SOFRINNOV was awarded the judges grand prize.
