Lecom takes bites out of market

Lecom, the sole importer of Inktec and Pelikan products in Romania, estimates turnover to reach ROL5.2 million ($6.9 million) this year, an increase of more than 30 per cent on 2004’s figure.

The company, which currently has four warehouses and eight stores, plans to expand its store network by opening ten new sales points this year, for which it has more than ROL500,000 set aside.

Majority shareholder Gunther Wotsch told local newspaper ZF Transilvania: "We went through a very good period last year, which continues in form of a similar growth."
