The company that manages and operates the Channel Tunnel, Groupe Eurotunnel, has changed its name to Getlink.
This new name, reflecting the dynamism of connection and exchange, marks the Group’s passage into an exciting new era for mobility infrastructures.
Jacques Gounon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Group, said:
“Getlink is all that is Eurotunnel and more than just Eurotunnel! Originally the promoter of the Channel Tunnel, itself an historic technological achievement, over the past ten years the Group has transformed and is now in perfect shape to take on the challenges of new forms of mobility”
“The core mission for Getlink is the development and management of safe, modern and environmentally friendly mobility infrastructures, a challenge taken up with success by the 3,300 employees serving more than 20 million passengers and thousands of businesses in the United Kingdom, France and across Europe”.
Getlink now leads the businesses of four major commercial brands:
Each year, Getlink safely transports more than 20 million passengers, 1.6 million trucks, 2.6 million cars, almost 2 billion tonne-kilometres of freight and, soon, also 1 gigawatt of electricity.
The Getlink businesses have established and strength are committed to the promise of the new identity for all its customers based on three core tenets: Safe, Smart & Green:
Jacques Gounon concluded:
“With revenues of over one billion euros, an operating margin of 50% and predictable cash flows up to 2086, Getlink has demonstrated the effectiveness and resilience of its economic model. It is on this same basis that we will continue to generate growth by offering our customers high value adding solutions, as exampled by ElecLink”.
The Group will retain the same stock market code: GET (Euronext Paris and Euronext London)
