Romania's Mobexpert To Open Bulgarian Megastore in Q3
This will be the chain's sixth hypermarket and the first outside Romania, as it seeks to take advantage of strong economic growth south of the Danube.
Sprawling on 11 000 square meters, the store will employ 100 people.
Initially, the company will sell only furniture assembled in its own factories, but could expand to include merchandise made in Bulgaria as well.
The company has announced plans to open a total 25 hyperstores in the region, including five outside Romania, by 2011. Two of them are pencilled in for Plovdiv and Varna.
Mobexpert is an integrated group of companies, with its own production facilities, real estate and logistics companies, which sells furniture through its Mobexpert and Mobexpert Office retail chains, as well as exporting to western Europe.
The group had a turnover of EUR150 M last year.

In Galati ( a town on the Danube on Eastern Romania ) I saw a petrol station branded BULROM. Looks like there is a RO-BG joint venture willing to build a network of such stations.
How aboul Balkancar ? Once they had a powerfull presence in Romania and - if I remember well - even in other countries. How are they doing nowadays ?
>>> btw, the good Belgians work so hard and provide such a high quality compared to what they cost to the company that VW decided to close its plant in Brussels and move elsewhere. Renault quit long ago, DHL followed, many American companies too.
I shouldn't answer this because you use your information to attack Belgium in a way to attack me.
About Car manufacturers... they shut down overproduction and turn to production where the customers are...
DHL could not expand. The airport, where they ARE based, is too close to the metropolis of Brussels.
Then there is the amount of taxes... why do you think we turned to Bulgaria, Germans to Poland, French to North Africa...
>>> Are you playing the fool or what?
OMG he got it...
>>> It is the company VW that is not for sale (as of yet) not the cars.
All right, it are not the cars that are not for sale... so what is?
>>> Good to see you are finally happy after quitting that Flemish village and Plovdiv for Brussels;)
Bad luck, I'm only temperoraly in Belgium. Almost on my way back to Bulgaria.
Thats clear to me. The point was not so much who owns what but who manages what - and as of now, we dont manage anything that resemles a big company. Well, thats okay for the time being but its a bit frustrating not to be able to create even one big company starting in BG, no matter the owners.
it does not make it BRITISH.
Actually HSBC did not have any branches in UK until 1999 when it bought the midland Bank.
here is a link:
Who told you that HSBCis British bank?
HSBC means Hongkong Singapore Banking Corporation and the started originally in Hong Kong and expanded around the world.
In 1999 HSBS bought the Midland Bank and exchanged over night all signs just to the abbriviation
so that the English (who are very patriotic) do not know that it is a forein bank.
Not just this...the chairman,whom they appointed was also a British...John Brown.
The avarage British does not bother so and so...
the ONLY issue they are conserned of ...is the PRIVTE LIFE OF THEIR CELEBRITIES.
Have you ridden the underground in London...they spread those stupid newspapers in front of your nose and do not come even on the idea to ask you:"Sorry,Mam,do I disturbyou?"
OK, but I know HSBC is British, Nokia is Finnish, Microsoft American and IKEA Swedish. These companies were founded somewhere by someone and this determines their "nationality" and corporate culture. Thats why the Daimler-Chrysler merger never worked - because Daimler are as Germans as they can be and Chrysler are Americans so they couldnt really work together.
Guys, if you analyse who owns what on a global scale you will quickly find out that most of the world belongs to a few investment banks. Those who drool over "national assets" have no idea about global economies. It matters not who owns what, it matters that they are investing in your part of the woods. Be it services, shops, manufacturing.
