The Group


We have been investing in the Polish retail market since 1999; initially under the Poundstretcher brand. The first PEPCO shop was opened in 2004 when we became a part of Pepkor, a South African investment holding. Ten years later Pepkor was incorporated into Steinhoff International Holdings Limited, a major international group which owns 42 retail brands in 44 countries across Europe, Africa and Australia.

Pepkor was established in 1965 and employs nearly 38,000 people in Africa, Australia and Europe. At present, it manages value retail chains offering primarily clothes, shoes and textiles in more than 4,000 shops. Pepkor’s biggest retail brands are Pep and Ackermans in southern Africa.

A group of integrated companies manufacturing, delivering and selling furniture, household goods and clothing in Africa, Europe and Australia. The company was established in Germany in 1964 by Bruno Steinhoff. Listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and, since 2015, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. In Europe, it is the second largest (after Ikea) representative of the furniture industry.

Our Employees


The European PEPCO chain employs more than 9,000 people, among them more than 450 in the Poznań head office and 400 employees of the distribution center. We still have employees who back in 1999 worked as first on developing our company. Despite the large scale of operations, this is one of the reasons why we have managed to maintain an open family-like atmosphere.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY


 

OUR VOLUNTARY AND CHARITY WORK


 

At PEPCO, we all understand and appreciate family values, treat each other with respect, communicate in an open way and at the same time, get involved in lending a helping hand.  PEPCO employees participate in charity projects and are involved as volunteers in helping the most needy. For years we have been supporting “Szlachetna Paczka” as part of the “PEPCO pomaga pełną PACZKĄ” project by preparing Christmas gifts all over Poland. In the summer, our volunteers take part in the “Poznań Business Run” and raise funds for the charges of the Jasiek Mela Foundation.
