Final Distribution, the firm which distributes Gerard roofing tiling in Romania, expects to see a 12 percent increase in sales of such products in Romania this year on 2009, the company has said. “Even during less favorable conditions, Romania offers a high increase potential on this segment, which will be more and more visible once the market starts to settle, which will probably happen in the second half of the year. For 2010 we expect a 12 percent sales increase for Gerard,” said Dan Mircescu, general manager of Final Distribution.
The company sold 200,000 sqm of Gerard tiling last year, out of a total market volume of 250,000 sqm for similar products. Romania was the third most dynamic market for Gerard in Europe based on the volume of sales for the firm.
