Currently we are enjoying a strong position, which was recently confirmed by over 80% year-on-year growth in the consumer electronics and household appliances segment. We managed to achieve it thanks to the fact that we offer almost all leading brands and additionally we are constantly expanding our range of exclusive products, which are appreciated by our partners.

Since the very beginning, we bet on a dedicated team of salespeople, who understood the consumer electronics and household appliances market. Additionally, we can also see that the proposed formula of AB Innovation Days is a perfect opportunity for networking and discussions with our partners and manufacturers”, said Andrzej Przybyło, chairman of the Board of AB S.A.
