– At the turn of 1999 and 2000, we started developing a waste management strategy for Lower Silesia. At that time, EU regulations were not in force yet, we needed the know-how that I found in Alsace, the partner region of Lower Silesia, we also managed to obtain funding from the French government for this purpose – adds the founder of Exp-Peco.
From the implementation of this project, the company began to deal with what 70% of its orders now cover – environmental protection, energy and waste. The second branch of its activity is invariably consulting for the food industry, i.e. supporting companies in establishing B2B relationships.
– Examples of our activities in this area include the fact that we take part in the preparation of the French week for the Biedronka chain of stores, and we also try to introduce functional food products to chains such as Rossman. We also work for companies that offer products from the premium sector, e.g. a French chocolate manufacturer – we support him in the sales process and search for an investor who will finance the creation of brand stores in 3 large Polish cities. Based on our experience, we sometimes help in the restructuring and strategy of small businesses. Moreover, a few years ago we implemented two large economic projects related to France for the city of Wrocław – comments Andrzej Bednarz.
Over 22 years of the company’s development was based mainly on periods of full prosperity, although the financial crisis of 2008-2009 was a worse period in its operations. The company managed to survive it by reorienting its strategy and reorganizing its operations. Since then, both the food and environmental protection markets in Poland have been constantly developing, which also means growth for Exp-Peco.
