Erfolg der INTERACTION Mitglieder mit der Eigenmarke Q-CONNECT

Encouraging first half year for Q-CONNECT

INTERACTION, the European alliance of OP Distributors reports a 7%
growth of its house brand Q-CONNECT in the first 6 months of this year
versus the same period last year.
The brand which is distributed in over 20 countries Europe, saw a relatively
slow start at the beginning of the year, but sales accelerated towards

Jan Van Belleghem, the MD comments:
The growth is partly coming from members shifting other house-brand
volumes onto Q-CONNECT. But to a large extend it has been organic
growth. Eastern Europe, Spain, Switzerland and France are developing
particularly well for us. We are confident to reach a turnover of 140 million
EUR at the end of the year.
