EXPANDA was established in
1990 and has been successfully operating on the Macedonian market ever since for as many
28 years. It started as a Duty Free Shop on the Macedonian - Serbian border offering more
than 2000 products. Over this period EXPANDA managed to build strong relationships with all its
suppliers, aspecifically with
PHILIP MORRIS – a leading company in the tobacco industry worldwide.
In 1999 both companies signed an agreement and EXPANDA began distributing on behalf of PHILIP MORRIS, making it its first international partner. With the large capacity and its high quality direct distribution system, EXPANDA got interested in expanding its product portfolios and decided to enter the market of distribution of telecommunication services and products.
In September 2007, EXPANDA signed the first agreement of this kind with the leading mobile service provider in Central and Eastern Europe, MOBILKOM AUSTRIA through the mobile communications provider Vip Operator in Macedonia. It started delivering Vip SIM cards, paper vouchers, and electronic recharge services through post terminals. More recently, in 2008, EXPANDA became the exclusive Importer of PHILIP MORRIS products for the region of the Republic of Macedonia.
Today, EXPANDA operates with 101 employees in its business premises, equipped with a large capacity warehouse and advanced logistics technology. We have 38 vans with large capacity and 15 other vehicles with smaller transportation capacity. With these vehicles and the available logistics-handling technology (lap-tops, GPS control devices, pocket PCs) we manage to directly supply 80% of all small retail shops and big supermarkets throughout the country.
EXPANDA has grown into one of the most successful logistics company in the country. Under the patronage of The Ministry of Economy, in the book of 200 Largest Companies in Macedonia, EXPANDA was promoted as the th largest company in this country and adheres to its vision of becoming number one.
