Localization

We bring your production safely to your target country

Everything in one place
The markets between Europe and Asia, with their huge geographical area and resources, offer many growth opportunities for domestic and foreign companies from various industries.
In these times of sanctions, reforms, and market liberalisation, numerous incentives have been developed for investors and foreign companies. In recent years, many western European companies have increasingly relocated their own local production to Russia and other CIS countries as an alternative to pure exports and have benefited from the positive development in the Eurasian region.
From the first steps in the market, to a step-by-step expansion of your business, to the opening of your own local production facility – we always pay attention to all essential details and country-specific peculiarities to ensure the success of your investment.
