I am looking to expand in Europe with an adhesive product sold in DIY Retail stores.

I would like to find out facts on who are the best diy retailers in Germany – Scandinavia- Eastern europe.

Where can i find contact names and contact details and the name and contact details of distributors in these places

Answer

My advice is to use a reputable Market Development Consultant who can provide not only the contacts and names of customers and local Distributors, but also can help you with market info, the local business methods and pitfall, competition info, and in particular guide you though your market entry.

Answer

Hi Gary, the "big three" in the Czech Republic and Slovakia ( probably similar in Hungary and maybe Poland) are Hornbach, Bauhaus and OBI. All three have German parent companies and have large stores in cities and larger towns.
