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.

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 11,000 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. 

Awards and accolades


Pepco is among the companies most recognised by the customers and market experts as proved by millions of our shoppers as well as industry awards and accolades bestowed for the quality, popularity, trust and trustworthiness. We are proud of all the praises which stimulate us to grow for the benefit of our customers and employees.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY


OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

In the area of social responsibility, PEPCO focuses on assisting children, getting involved primarily in activities aimed at organizing children’s free time.

CHILDREN’S FRIENDS ASSOCIATION

PEPCO has cooperated as part of a long-term CSR project with the Children’s Friends Association (TPD), the oldest public benefit organization in Poland. Together with the TPD, we want children to enjoy a better future, offering opportunities to develop, breaking down educational barriers and offering chances for equal treatment. PEPCO sponsors series of classes developing the interests and passions as well as holiday trips for the charges of the Association’s care centres.

THE HAPPY BUS

PEPCO is a patron of a national project,  the HAPPY BUS, initiated by the HAPPY KIDS Foundation targeted at children from impoverished families from small villages who do not have a chance for holiday relaxation. The Foundation provides children from rural areas with day-long care combined with entertainment. At the stops on the tour, the Foundation resorts to a “joke bus“ which serves as a “travelling playground”. The children are taken care of by foreign volunteers, at the same time learning English.

OUR VOLUNTEERS


PEPCO employees take part in charity projects and as volunteers, they are involved in activities targeted at lending a helping hand to those most in need. For years, we have supported the Szlachetna Paczka programme; as part of the “PEPCO pomaga pełną PACZKĄ” project, we actively prepare Christmas presents all over Poland.

In the summer, PEPCO volunteers take part in the POZNAŃ BUSINESS RUN and raise funds for the charges of the Jasiek Mela Foundation. Every year, the company has at least 6 relay teams.

We work for therapy centres managed by both the TPD and local entities; a case in point is NIBYLANDIA (Neverland) from Poznań.  Children aged 6-18 can spend free time in a nice, creative and safe way. Nibylandia is a place where children are supported by professional educators and therapists. During the latest holidays, PEPCO sponsored a summer camp; the employees and other volunteers had redecorated and refurbished  the facilities.
