Purchasing, sales, product management, marketing, pre- and after-sales services and warehousing will be centralized in the new branch office.

Concerning operational activities, Früchtenicht will assume direct responsibility for the new branch office. “We are glad about the recruitment of Jürgen Früchtenicht and are convinced that we will be able to strengthen our position as a large importer and trader of timber flooring significantly,” said António Cruz, CEO, Amorim Revestimentos S.A.
