  • Summary:
    This Belgian company supplies and distributes ceramic and natural stone tiles and glass mosaics. They are looking to expand their market to Europe and the US. To do this, they are looking for partners that can be agents or distributors.
  • Description:
    As an exporter, supplier and distributor of natural stone, ceramic tiles and glass mosaics to professionals, the Belgian company combines a special passion for stonework and the necessary know-how. They work according to an innovative and new concept: The client can rely completely on the company. After signing the agreement, the client doesn’t have to do anything anymore to get a punctual delivery on the building site by the logistical partners of the Belgian company.

    From the factory of the producer to the yard or site of the client, everything is arranged by the Belgian company. The client can be care-free and can always rely on the customer service of the Belgian company in these four languages: English, Dutch, French and German.

    The Belgian company has a large selection of tiles on offer with varying sizes, texture and looks. A selection of the products on offer can be viewed on the attached pictures. In the titles of the attachments can also be found the technical specifications of each product.

    The company wants to take its services abroad. They are planning to start exporting to Europe and the USA (starting in Texas). To accomplish this, they are looking for agents to represent them and/or distributors who can distribute their tiles and mosaics in the countries mentioned beforehand.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    Distribution services agreement, Commercial agency agreement
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    The Belgian company is looking for partners. Both a commercial agency agreement and a distribution services agreement are possible.

    A commercial agent would work independently at first, but could become an employee if there is a good cooperation. The Belgian company asks that the agent would work exclusively for them, but in return would offer a very generous bonus system. They would prefer an agent that has experience in the sector. The logistic aspect would be completely the responsibility of the Belgian company. The focus of the agent would be on sales.

    A distributor would not have to work exclusively for the company. They would receive reductions based on fixed purchase quantity. They can also leave the logistics to the Belgian company.

    In Europe it would be possible for the Belgian company to deliver straight to the client of the distributor or agent. In the US it will soon be possible to do the same thing in Texas.
