A new face in the Sales - Team of F&P Stock Solution GmbH – Welcome Nikola Borisavljevic Since the founding of F&P Stock Solution GmbH in 2013, the company has expanded steadily. Meanwhile, F&P is represented internationally and buys and/or sells its goods worldwide. As one of the leading wholesalers for overstock and customer returns in the textiles, shoes and accessories sectors of famous brands, F&P relies on a flexible, international team, especially in the sales team. The main sales regions in the early years were Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. In recent months and also in the coming years more regions are to come to it. For example, deliveries to F&P customers in Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and China. However, such an expansion is only possible with an international team that is familiar with the respective sales regions and speaks the language of the potential customers. For the expansion into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the sales team, headed by Konstantine Papageorgiou, has had strong support from Nikola since mid-February. Learn more about Nikola – Our new Sales Manager for Czech Republic and Slovakia "I’m new in Berlin and currently live in Prenzlauer Berg, I am originally from Bratislava, Slovakia and speak English, French and Slovak. German is a bit difficult for me, but I have accepted the challenge and will hopefully get on fast with my new German course and the help of my new colleagues. I am excited about this new experience and all the team members are really nice and welcoming. Before joining F&P, I spent several years in sales. I used to work in similar positions for the past few years within various countries in the EU. I lived and worked for a while in Mainz (Germany), but then again in Bratislava. So I'm not living in Germany for the first time. I enjoy spending my free time in bookstores or art galleries, and often visit the Berlin Philharmonic. I'm looking forward to the time at F&P and to working with the team!"   ...

Where can you buy goods from customer returns? Of course from F&P Stock Solution GmbH! But how do you define goods from customer returns actually? The term describes goods that were either ordered by the end customer and sent back to the seller unused. Or goods that has already been used (worn) and has found its way back to the seller for various reasons. The F&P Stock Solution GmbH buys and sells goods from customer returns of big and famous brands. The stocks are divided into different categories and quality levels. F&P separates shoes, textiles and accessories in three to four different levels: A-Quality: These are products that are new and original packaging. They have no defects or other faults. B-Quality: These are goods with slight defects, such as pressure marks, light dirt or a non-functional zipper. C-Quality: In this quality level, the goods have clearly visible damages, such as holes or a torn shoelaces. D-Quality: These are products that can usually only be used as recycling material. These includes, for example, single shoes or unpairs. The sorting and checking of the incoming shoes, textiles and accessories in the different quality levels takes place through the inbound check in the warehouse of F&P. This ensures that there are no mixes between the individual categories. The customers of F&P appreciate the professionalism, the good offers and the quality of the goods. F&P Stock Solution buy its goods from customer returns from different suppliers from all around the world. In order to protect the brand names and customers, we stand great importance to discretion.

Overstocks, Liquidation Goods, Surplus Goods– What is it and how F&P Stock Solution can help! F&P Stock Solution GmbH was founded in 2013 and had grown to one of the world biggest wholesalers for overstocks, liquidation goods and surplus goods. But what does overstock, liquidation goods and surplus goods mean and what role does F&P play in this? Overstock Usually overstocks are generally “left overs” of a product item, regardless of which type of item. That are goods that have been ordered or produced in over quantity (clearing the warehouse) or goods that have not found a buyer in the shop. However, the overstock also includes customer returns that could no longer be sold. The term "overstock" often implies for many consumers that the product is of poor quality, broken or simply cheap in every way. F&P Stock Solution exclusively buys and sells overstocks of shoes, textiles and accessories from major and respectable manufacturers. In doing so, the buying team pays attention to the “up to date” and merchantability of the goods, the warehouse and the merchandisers take care to the quality. Many suppliers and customers have a long and trusting base with F&P, because we value the transparency and control of our sales and marketing channels to protect our customers' image. Liquidation Goods Actually, the liquidation goods somehow belong under the topic "overstocks" but still doesn’t really apply the meaning. If a company has to be liquidated because it has to be closed or has to file for bankruptcy, the question usually remains: where to go with the current stock? F&P Stock Solution can, again, help with this. The buying and selling team is fast, professional and flexible. Working together with our customers, we find the optimal solution for each site to "get rid of" stock quickly and effectively. Through a wide and global network of retailers, F&P also has the ability to export the goods without making a great stir. Surplus Goods The term surplus can also be understood as oversupply. Accordingly, rest is anything that has exceeded demand. These are in most cases pre-season or "old" collections that are should no longer available in official retail stores. In times of abundance, the collections changing faster and faster, so that overhanging goods are a big problem. No matter where the product comes from, F&P mainly buys and sells shoes, textiles and accessories from well-known brands in various qualities and categories. With our large network of retailers, brand manufacturers and online platforms, we are able to quickly and “quietly” export overhang goods while protecting the brand image of our suppliers. But F&P's customers, who buy overhanging goods from us, can also rely on discretion and experience.   The entire team of F&P Stock Solution GmbH, around its founders and managing directors Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart, works together with each customer or supplier effectively on individual solutions, no matter whether it concerns overstock, liquidation goods or surplus goods!    ...

Who buys overstocks? F&P Stock Solution GmbH has around 6 years of experience in the wholesaling overstocks of shoes, textiles and accessories and today is one of the world's leading wholesalers in this section. Duden defines overstock as "left over from a larger items, an uncleared rest". This definition actually pretty much describes what this business is about. F&P Stock Solution buys customer returns, liquidation goods, pre-season goods and overstocks of big and well-known brands. F&P attaches great importance to long-term and trusting partnerships, not just to its suppliers. Constant control of incoming and outgoing goods guarantees F&P's customers consistently good quality, something that is not found everywhere in the overstock business. When F&P was founded, it was all about the question: "What happens to all the shoes, textiles and accessories that are not sold or come back via customer returns - the overstock?" This is how Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart, Founder and CEOs of F&P, set out to start a business which answers exactly this question. Today, F&P Stock Solution has around 50 employees, that come from 20 different nations. The team is young, professional and love their work. Customers, that are buying stock from F&P, come from all over the world. Outlets, wholesalers and retail stores from Poland, France, Ukraine, Russia, the Baltics and many more other countries are among the customers who buy overstock shoes and overstock textiles from famous brands. The buyers are usually interested in high-quality goods, even if it comes from overstocks. The term overstock, in times of a "tight is right" mentality, gets a negative connotation which isn't deserved. The purchase and sales of overstock leads to a second lifecycle of the "ascertained" shoes and textiles. Giving a second lifecycle to the products is a good way to reduce the production of new goods, which often ends also as overstocks. Anyone who buys and sells overstocks takes also care about the reduction of CO2 emission and reduces the water consumption that is needed in the production of new shoes and textiles - on the daily basis -. The customers of F&P Stock Solution whom buy overstocks are individual, demanding and expectant. The team is fast and professional. A great mix to further expansion of this business idea in the coming years.   ...
