Maxima Launches International Sourcing Unit In Poland
Lithuanian retailer Maxima Grupė has announced that it has launched a new unit of its procurement arm, Maxima International Sourcing, in Warsaw, Poland.
Commenting on the launch, the CEO of Maxima International Sourcing, Tomas Palevičius, said, “With this decision, we are strengthening the purchasing function in Poland.
"Having a permanent unit here will make it possible to maintain closer ties with existing suppliers and producers, also develop new contacts with potential partners."
Maxima International Sourcing Poland will provide agency services to the group’s retail chains in the Baltics, Poland, and Bulgaria.
The new procurement arm, which presently comprises five employees, will be headed by Maxima International Sourcing board member Gintaras Jasinskas.
It will work closely with suppliers operating in neighbouring countries, including Polish companies as well as local representatives of international companies.
Better Offer For Consumers
"The company’s goal is to ensure that goods are acquired on the most attractive terms, not just from local partners but also international firms present in Poland. That, in turn, will let us offer good prices to customers in all our markets," Palevičius added.
Maxima International Sourcing was launched in February of this year, with Tomas Palevičius named its chief executive officer.
