ŠEVT, a Slovak company selling official forms and a large selection of office supplies as well as publishing and selling statistics, has the ambition to establish itself in the Austrian market in 2011. Miroslav Kadvolt, the company’s general director, said the opening of the Austrian labour market on May 1 has enabled his company to take this step, the TASR newswire reported.

ŠEVT started to cooperate with Office 1 Superstores International from the USA in 2004 in providing office supplies and by doing so reached a better position for negotiating with global suppliers as well as getting a licence under this brand name to do business in Austria and the Czech Republic. Kadvolta said ŠEVT’s activities will start first in the Austrian market, using Slovak staff for movement of goods while employees who are in direct contact with customers will be Austrian.

Diverse products and originality in the goods offered are the basic precondition for success in the Austrian market, according to Kadvolta, adding that the company’s supply chain consists of about 270 companies, primarily in Slovakia, but as well as in the Czech Republic and other countries. ŠEVT also closely cooperates with Chinese producers and has launched a branch office in Beijing.
