VIVE Group

VG logoThe VIVE Group history started in 1992, when the first group company, VIVE Textile Recycling, which is also the largest organisational unit employing over 100 employees, was founded. Along the further development and increasing demand for real estate, transport and logistics and search for new sales channels, particular company departments were undergoing evolution and extension. The management was becoming more and more challenging, the accountability was not clear and the financial settlement system was getting more complicated. A natural step was to separate and create independent structures that could not only serve the company in a more efficient way, but also provide its services to other businesses. The newly-created companies remained interdependent to various extent, which, in consequence, led to the creation of a leading brand to embrace all the interrelated entities. Thus, the VIVE Group, currently composed on 9 companies, was founded. The founder and the President of the Management Board is a Dutch businessman and visionary, Bertus Servaas.
VIVE Textile Recycling – the main company within the VIVE Group – a leader in textile recycling both in Poland and in Europe. The company owns the most modern, fully computerised clothes sorting lines in Poland to enable the processing of over 300 t of input material daily, preserving the top quality standards of ISO 9001 and 14001. Each day, the staff of over 750 employees, in a 3-shift system of work, is sorting and packing the final products from 700 various assortment groups. The products prepared in this way are sent to over 60 countries all over the world and to VIVE Profit – a retail store chain in Poland. The company produces also industrial cleaning cloth used by business entities from many industries.

At present, VIVE Profit Center owns several retail stores in south-eastern Poland. However, it plans to open a network of dozens of sales venues all over the country. A large commercial area of each store lets the customers do their shopping in highly comfortable conditions and the offered products, depending on the assortment, are presented on racks, shelves or in baskets. Once a week, the entire assortment is changed in each network store, offering over 100,000 items of branded apparel every day.
Another company within the VIVE Group is VIVE Transport – it is one of the largest private freight forwarding enterprises in the Polish market, specialised in large-volume shipments with swap bodies. It provides 55 large volume transport sets and 450 swap bodies 
of BDF type to its customers, including leading Polish and foreign entities of automotive, packaging and wood processing industries. The company fleet includes DAF and IVECO vehicles not older than 4 years. All the vehicles and swap bodies are monitored in the GPS TRANSICS system integrated with the ERP Speed and driven by two-man teams. The main destinations of the transport company include as follows: Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Czech Republic. Since September 2012 VIVE Transport has been a member of the Polish Chamber of Freight Forwarding and Logistics. In 2013, the company was awarded with a prestigious “Gazele Biznesu” Award by Puls Biznesu. The company has the quality certificate ISO 9001. Furthermore, the company owns a driving school, Eco Driving Academy PL, specialising in the courses of safe driving techniques and eco driving.

In order to further develop its operations, the Group is all the time searching for new sources of the material. Apart from two companies that are involved in the material search, new vendors are needed all the time. The Group is focused on the centralisation and implementation of investments that would enable it to bring all the companies to a single location.
