Brief History

Konimpex Ltd. was founded in 1989 as a limited liability company. The basic profile of the company is in foreign and domestic trade with partners.

An extensive knowledge of the contemporary C.I.S markets by its founders has allowed Konimpex to expand its activities. The commercial exchange at this time was very wide and intensive generically. Later the company started to specialize in trading raw materials and semi-manufactured industrial and chemical materials. Konimpex has also been expanding its field of activities. Among its current partners there are companies from Europe, Asia (India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Sri Lanka), the Middle East (UAE) and both of the Americas (Columbia, Canada, Cuba).

In the course of the 15 years of activities, Konimpex has developed an infrastructure for the commercial service of its clients. There are four warehouses in Poland, and the company also has the possibility for storage of goods in ports of various countries. The main headquarters of the company is located in Poland (Konin) and there are representative offices in Russia (Moscow) and in Turkey (Istanbul).

The Istanbul office was opened in August 2003, although the company started its activities in Turkey in 2002. The establishment of an office became necessary as the trade volume grew and capacities increased. New materials have been added to the palette of products being provided, and the liveliness of the Turkish market led to the decision to make a first step into the country.
