A beautiful long entrepreneurial history
The history of Loca Service does not belong only to the past. It expresses who we are today and what we plan to be and do tomorrow. It tells what makes our deepest identity: the entrepreneurial spirit, the spirit of innovation and team spirit that animate everyday our founder, Pascal BOUVE, and who are our best assets to continue the adventure with the same energy. Through our history since 1981, emerges the story of a company that has remained true to itself, whilst reinventing itself constantly to increasingly support its customers.
