EOSA swells eastwards


The European Office Supplies Alliance (EOSA) is building on its pan-European vision by expanding its international network of independent partners eastwards into the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

The new EOSA partners are Czech Republic-based Partner Czech, Hungary-based Apisz and Poland-based Biuro Plus.

Described by EOSA as leaders in their respective markets, the new partners bring a joint turnover of 150 million ($66 million) to the alliance, while existing partners already boast 1850 million in combined revenues.

EOSA chairman Oswald van Even told OPI: "We have selected our new partners because they have a strong international focus and are committed to EOSA."

In a joint statement, the three new EOSA recruits said: "After opening up the borders of the European Union in May, this is an excellent opportunity to broaden our horizon in Europe. It will enable us to service our international clients and to win new European clients."
