PBS Holding to enter Italian market

Richard Scharmann, CEO, PBS Holding AG

PBS Holding will expand into Italy in 2019, as the Austrian multichannel reseller adds another market to its presence in Austria, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

PBS Holding met with a number of leading companies present in the Italian market during a meeting in Milan in November to outline its business model. Former ADVEO Italy CEO Fabrizio Pistoni has been brought in as part of its team in preparation for its launch in July 2019.    

The Italian wholesale market is currently led by ADVEO Italy and Italian-owned rival Office Distribution. Andrea Ghidini, Managing Director, Office Distribution, told The Office Times that PBS Holding will help dynamize the Italian market and push Italian companies to keep improving their business models.
