The principle of “as local as possible” and “as much centralisation as necessary” in the areas of IT, logistics and product data ensures sustainable competitiveness while maintaining the greatest possible proximity to customers.
As part of its multi-channel strategy, it serves wholesale and retail customers at all distribution levels in eight countries in Central Europe.
Wholesale distribution includes the supply and servicing of stationary and digital retail customers in the Office & Stationary Supplies market. Both companies with a focus on private end customers and commercial end customers are supplied.
PBS Holding also operates its own retail companies, which specialise in supplying commercial and private end customers and is one of the leading suppliers in Central Europe in this market segment as well as in wholesale.
In order to take account of the international market development, all corporate structures were bundled into a holding group that is capable of operating on the capital market. Today, the PBS Holding companies are among the most important suppliers in their respective markets.
The establishment and operation of national logistics solutions supports the assurance of the highest service levels in combination with efficient resource management. Long transport routes to the customer for everyday goods in particular are thus greatly reduced or avoided as far as possible.
