20:20 Mobile is targeting major growth in Central and Eastern Europe over the next 12 months with the opening of two regional offices in Warsaw and Budapest, together with new third-party warehousing and logistics services that will deliver complete coverage across core markets.
Already active in the Central and Eastern European region for over five years, 20:20 Mobile now delivers immediate end-to-end coverage for Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, with extended reach into the Balkans.
Commenting on the expansion, James Browning Managing Director of UK, Central & Eastern Europe at 20:20 Mobile, says: “Following a strategic review of our operations we recognised the potential for us to mirror our UK success in the growing Central and Eastern European market, with the first step being the delivery of a full service warehousing and logistics offering.
“We will be working closely with customers to quickly develop a growing range of solutions that meet their demands in terms of their own growth, development and success.”
The strengthening of operations in the region will enhance 20:20 Mobile’s ability to hold stock locally, reducing lead times for customers and enabling smaller quantities to be ordered more cost effectively. The result will broaden the market for 20:20 Mobile, with customers large and small benefiting from the buying power and support services offered by the company.
“We have the industry knowledge and expertise to add value throughout the supply chain for manufacturers, networks and retailers,” adds James, “and we are now in a position to deliver our award winning service to new partners and customers in a region where distribution is key to the growth plans of both customers and suppliers.
“Our focus is on building a full scale supply chain that will cover all aspects of the product lifecycle – from market analysis and category management, to accessories and technical support. This is the first phase of the expansion, and we anticipate strong growth from the region over the coming years.”
