D/B – On May 1, 2015 the Belgian textile wholesaler, WIC, became part of the German L-Shop-Team Group. According to own statements, the L-Shop-Team intends to expand its presence on the European market with the aid of the new subsidiary and set the foundation for a joint expansion course. “We are convinced that in cooperating with Michèle Bassez, we can place our trust in an outstanding expert, who has long-standing sales experience on the promotional textiles sector. WIC fits in perfectly within our group. The merging of our business activities will bring advantages for both sides,” commented Stefan Schenk and Jörg Bittorf, Executive Directors of the L-Shop-Team GmbH. WIC customers will continue to be served by their trusted customer service contact partners. In addition to the WIC line-up, they now also have the opportunity to order items from the entire L-Shop-Team range of products.
The L-Shop-Team already founded a Swiss subsidiary in Switzerland at the beginning of the year and is thus now represented in Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Belgium.
