Masternaut operates primarily in France and the United Kingdom.

For Michelin, the acquisition will speed up the development of its Services & Solutions business for light vehicles and support the booming fleet market. The transaction will also enable Masternaut to roll out its offering across the whole of Europe by taking advantage of the Michelin network's geographical coverage. The increase in the volume of data captured, will allow the partners to offer its customers the best solutions, improve product performance and develop its data science deployments, such as predictive maintenance.
