Poli-Farbe to establish chain of independent paint stores
Hungarian paint maker Poli-Farbe is launching a network of independent, Hungarian-owned retailers under the brand Pannon Paint Network, Poli-Farbe told MTI on Thursday.
Poli-Farbe expects 30 stores to join the network by the spring of 2012 and 140 by the end of next year.
Family-owned businesses generate about 78% of the HUF 33bn annual worth of Hungary's paint market.
Paint stores or other specialized retailers account for 82% of Poli-Farbe's HUF 7bn of annual revenue.
