Pall-Ex is targeting Slovakia and the Czech Republic as its next European network, having also recently begun searching for a franchise partner in Bulgaria.

The network, which currently has Pall-Ex Italia, Pall-Ex Iberia, Pall-Ex Romania, Pall-Ex France and Pall-Ex Polska all up and running, wants to have a 15 country-strong network of European franchisees - or principal national partners - in place by 2015.

Adrian Russell, MD of Pall-Ex, said:  “Launching a new network in the region of Slovakia and the Czech Republic is one of the next key steps in our aim to form a Pan-European pallet network.

“With operations in Romania going from strength-to-strength, and Pall-Ex Polska having successfully launched in September 2013, the opportunity is open for us to create a new link in our chain across Central and Eastern Europe."

The company appointed a new marketing director to support its European expansion last year.
