Kingfisher Sourcing Eastern Europe

KSO is the Sourcing and procurement division of the Kingfisher plc with a direct sourcing network that covers Asia, India, Latin America, Northern Africa and Europe.
KSO enables Group Operating Companies to buy product directly from the manufacturer which offers major competitive advantages, not least the ability to secure favorable buying terms. The first sourcing office was established in 1994 in Hong Kong to then later be joined by additional satellite offices in Shanghai and Warsaw. Warsaw office opened in 2004 and is now responsible for all categories. With a dedicated and strongly motivated team Kingfisher Sourcing Eastern Europe is sourcing and choosing products by contacting the vendors across central and eastern Europe and south America, helping them become a part of the Kingfisher business.
