Labrosse & You was established in 1977 by Guy Labrosse and is based in Saint-Péray on the west side of Valance roughly halfway between Lyon and Avignon. It operates sales, service and forklift rental from a further five branches in Albon - between Valence and Lyons, Piolenc and Châteauneuf-du-Rhône - which are both between Avignon and Valence, Cavaillon on the south east side of Avignon and Villeneuve between Avignon and Nice.

The company is a major distributor for Fenwick Fenwick-linde forklifts across Drôme, Ardèche, Vaucluse and Alpes de Haute Provence, but also offers Faresin and Magni telehandlers, Oil & Steel platforms, JMG pick & carry cranes, XCMG mini excavators, scissor lifts and other products and now SPT/Uplifter. In all it has 170 employees.
