Over 20 years ago...

... the Cedar was created in a little town called Paray le Monial, located in Burgundy, France. The founder, Eric Chevallier, was volunteering for a faith-based entity and he was asked to acquire a copier. Eric spent about 20 hours researching about multi-functional devices and meeting with various suppliers. A few days later, he had dinner with some peers in other nearby faith-based establishments and discovered they had done the same on their end! The three of them together would have saved time and money - had they consolidated their research and acquired their devices from the same supplier! That's where the idea to group together in order to decrease pricing started. 

Today, the Cedar is present in France, Poland, Spain and the United States with over 150 employees worldwide and over 18,000 entities benefiting from negotiated pricing on a multitude of buying categories.
