Big Buyer: In Ufficio sales increase in 2017
| 24 November, 2017
Andriano Alessio, Managing Director of dealer group Gruppo In Ufficio and President of AIFU (Italian association of office suppliers), told The Office Times that sales for its dealers were up 2% in 2017 (until the end of September) and that October was a very strong month.
In Ufficio is the only remaining dealer group in the Italian B2B market and counts 24 dealer members with a total turnover of €130 million.
Andriano Alessio sees opportunities in new growth categories such as hygiene and catering as the Italian market is more reliant on traditional office supplies, paper and ink & toner compared to other European markets.
