About me Sincere greetings! My name is Alexander, I am 30 years old and I came to Berlin from Moscow 4 years ago. I graduated from the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation with a master’s degree in Crises Management and M&A. Despite my major, I have always been a huge fan of great (not crisis-facing) businesses. I love sales and business development, which is why I first joined Groupon and later Airbnb, where I was ultimately reassigned to Berlin. My sales career spans more than 10 years, during which I have been working in online, travel, beauty, real estate and even industrial boilers construction industries. The last and, at the same time, most interesting project in which I was involved before joining F&P was the FIFA World Cup in Russia back in 2018. When I don’t help great businesses to become even more prosperous on my own I work with great teams! I experience pure joy in settling effective business units whose operations are based on an Agile mindset and SCRUM methodologies. Why F&P? I have spent most of my career working for online B2C platforms without any real assets or for corporate and too often hulking businesses. This made me become hungry for entrepreneurial spark around me and the feeling of DOING business. Then I have found F&P – a team of professionals I respect who not just embrace entrepreneurship by themselves every day but bring real value to entrepreneurs all over the world! Also changing the smoothie-culture of IT offices for working with a huge and seethe warehouse is fascinating to me! That’s why I decided to contribute my skill, experience and energy to this company.  Why Berlin?  This city has so many faces and all of them are open to new people and cultures. My Berlin is quite different from the mainstream - it is built around old buildings, beautiful parks, cycling and food! But this dimension is just one step far from the pulsing energy and world-changing innovations of this city, which I really love!     ...

This week we had the pleasure of being visited by a group of Bachelor and Master students from the Dutch Nijmegen School of Management. The students came to Berlin on a 2-day educational trip in order to visit several Berlin-based companies to get a taste of the business culture in Germany. Our Head of Sales Konstantine provided our guests from the Netherlands with a detailed company presentation, touching such topics as our business model, career options and company culture. The visit then proceeded with a tour around our office and warehouse facilities. Just as half a year ago, when some students of the University of Lincoln, USA came to visit our headquarters in Falkensee, we were proud to introduce tomorrow's professional to what F&P Stock Solution GmbH stands for. This sustainable way of solving our suppliers’ pain points drives attention to our company not only by side of other businesses but also management students worldwide. We are looking forward to future visits! ...

Twice a year, the major trade fair for buyers from all over Europe takes place in the economically thriving German city of Cologne. The International Promotional Goods and Import Fair (IAW-Fair) serves the purpose of introducing buyers to the latest trends in terms of newly launched products, seasonal items and promotional goods.    IAW stands for the maximum variety in terms of products of all kinds, including excess inventories and insolvency stocks. Thus professional buyers can get an extensive idea of the existing offer and then proceed with strategic planning for upcoming quarters. At the same time, it offers to distributors a wonderful opportunity to establish contacts with potential clients to expand their B2B customer base.    F&P Stock Solution made his first appearance at the IAW in 2017. Since then, we did not miss a single edition. Many of the valuable leads originated during the past events resulted in long-standing cooperations with our present business partners.   As one of the biggest fashion distributors, we work with a wide network of brand manufacturers, retailers and e-commerce platforms, which has allowed us to build a highly attractive product portfolio. Our wholesale warehouse in the outskirts of Berlin daily stores premium fashion products, which are thoroughly checked for quality before being re-sorted and repacked according to customer requirements.   This year most of our sales team is going to be present at the trading fair. Our delegation is formed by sales agents speaking German, English, Russian, Arabic, French and Greek, among others.   We are looking forward to seeing you at the 31st IAW in Cologne. Please visit us at Hall 9, stand E146 to talk about the fashion overstock business! ...

In cooperation with “kununu”, the prominent European rating platform for employers, the magazine FOCUS Business yearly publishes a list of the best employers in the small & medium enterprises segment. Once again, F&P can count itself among the winners! Out of the more than 900.000 company profiles were initially taken into evaluation, just 3.400 employers passed the qualifying round based on the following criteria: average rating > 3.5/5 recommendation rate > 70% We at F&P are very grateful to our (ex) employees for the ostensibly positive feedback. In fact, the continuous improvement of the working conditions has led our company to become one of the leading suppliers of wholesale clothing in Europe. Thanks to flat hierarchies, every employee can feel professionally fulfilled by taking on personal responsibility and consequently impacting the company’s growth. Regular team events, such as Christmas and summer parties, strengthen the team spirit and create a family-like working atmosphere. In our blog, you can get to know most of our employees and, with the help of their impressions and experiences, get a picture of the company’s culture at F&P. ...

Do you have an outlet or a boutique? Are you looking for a reliable wholesale fashion distributor? At F&P Stock Solution you will find a large number of lucrative offers. We have overstocks, liquidation goods and customer returns stemming out from past and actual collections of well-known fashion manufacturers. Benefit from the immediate availability of our stocks, which you can buy and resell to your customers.   Wholesale clothes of popular collections Experience our huge variety of branded wholesale clothes for women, men and children! In our warehouse facilities, you can find all types of materials, colors and styles. Overstock shoes are also part of our assortment; among others, we have stylish models for delicate tastes. Your fashion business will especially benefit from our mix palettes containing various fashion items. Our experienced buying team intensively checks the lots that we get from our supply channels for such criteria as quality, fashionability and resealability. Our good long-term relations with several trustworthy suppliers enable us to meet high standards.   What are stock lots, liquidation goods and overstocks? Overstocks Overstock is basically excess inventory, meaning that every product batch that exceeds its demand can be defined as overstock. In the fashion industry, overstocks are generally represented by older collections, which have been outclassed by newer trends. Although they are not necessarily unfashionable, they are no longer supposed to be on sale in retail stores. These days, overstocks are a huge problem for fashion retailers and distributors because a lot of fashion labels bring out up to 4 or 5 collections per year. F&P buys branded stock clothes of different categories and qualities. Thanks to our extensive network we can export overstocks in an efficient and discreet manner, thereby protecting the image and reputation of our suppliers.   Stock lots Stock lots are rests or remnants of product lots. In the fashion industry, they are generally leftovers of past seasonal collections. They are sold at very low prices to make space for the new product lines on the stores' shelves. Although they are often considered as low-quality products, this is not necessarily the case. F&P Stock Solution is a major distributor of textiles and shoes stock lots. Most of them originate from recent collections of well-known labels and brands.     Liquidation items Liquidation goods are quite similar to stock-lots, the only difference being that they were left over due to a different reason. These products stem from inventories of companies that went bankrupt, which consequently have to find a way to clear their unsold products. The F&P team can assist you with store clearances in a professional and timely manner. We are specialized in providing individual solutions for such cases.   ...

Christmas time is almost here and with it the time of the obligatory yearly company christmas party. For SMEs this usually means meeting up at a restaurant for a nice and comfortable dinner. But as the demands of employees have changed over the years, employers need to get creative in terms of team activities for the purpose of teambuilding. A fairly new trend is the incorporation of so called Escape Games within a christmas party. F&P Stock Solution gave it a shot! What is an Escape Game and how does it work? An Escape Game is a game where a team of around 4-8 people is locked inside a room which it tries to escape from by means of solving riddles, finding clues and cracking codes, all within a specific time frame (usually 60 minutes). Teamwork is key, as the rooms are designed in a way that they cannot by solved by a single person. For this reason Escape Games are considered to be a great teambuilding method. If your team is struggling to solve certain puzzles, the Game Master, who is watching the whole exercise with the help of a camera, will help you by giving you clues. The rooms are decorated with a lot of attention detail while serving a particular a theme. In addition there is also background story which is told by the Game Master beforehand. All that makes for an entertaining and fun experience.  The team of F&P Stock Solution enjoyed it a lot and highly recommends booking an escape game in order to spice up the next company christmas party. Lastly we present you photos of the teams that were able to solve all puzzles and made it out of the escape room in time.           ...
Welcome
  For the time being, Eastern Europe represents a gold mine in terms of sale figures for the wholesale stock clothing industry. However, there are many other emerging markets that deserve attention. After a long search for an experienced and competent Sales Manager for the Arab world, we are happy to welcome Ahmed aboard!   About me   I would define myself as primarily a quiet person. Out of this reason I prefer to spend my spare time fishing and cooking, with the constant intention of finding the missing piece of the puzzle in every aspect of my life. I moved to Berlin at the end of 2015. In the beginning, I took some German language classes, and, in this regard, I have to confess that it is a pretty tough language to learn! Before this, I spent 7 years in Malaysia working in the sourcing & import/export departments for the Southeast Asian markets.   Why F&P?   My willingness to join F&P is dated back to 2017. As soon as I discovered the company’s existence, I felt immediately fascinated by its business concept. Furthermore, the fashion industry has always been one of the industries I wanted to dig in the most and now here I am, working as a Sales Manager for North Africa and the Middle East. Becoming part of F&P was a big priority of mine and I hope to be able to contribute to its future growth and success. ...

  As we know, a picture says more than a thousand words. Although our sales managers do a wonderful job in praising our high-quality wholesale clothing assortment, the gift of the gab alone does not generate solid revenue. For this very reason, our new content manager Marina makes sure to display our products in the most enticing and endearing way. Providing our sales team with high-resolution product pictures is only one of her many responsibilities. Other tasks include the creation of portraits for the blog posts about our new team members, as well as the composition of photo collages and other marketing materials. Hailing from Argentina, Marina fits in perfectly with the multicultural environment cherished by F&P. We are very happy to welcome her aboard!   About me Hello, my name is Marina and I come from Buenos Aires. Even though I obtained my university degree in graphic design, photography is the area in which I am interested the most, as it is reflected by the working experiences I have collected so far. Throughout the years I have been able to dedicate myself to different interests and passions, without focusing on only one thing. My intellectual curiosity brought me to acquire a mix of skills, which helped me to develop myself professionally. Besides the classic wedding photography, I have already taken over the responsibility for a whole team in the early stage of my career.   Why F&P? After having considered such an idea for a few years, in 2018 I decided to begin a long journey around the globe. After having rambled for an entire year between generic jobs in different countries, I felt the need to nourish my creative side. This is exactly the reason why I chose Berlin. Although I am not much into big city life, I knew that it was the best place to fulfill my aspirations, and I was not wrong. Settling down was not easy, however, everything went right in a reasonably short timeframe. At F&P I found one of the nicest teams I have ever met. Here I can profit from the opportunity to grow professionally in a friendly environment. ...
