BILLA Romania recorded during the 2008 commercial year a 320 million lei business figure, up 9.55% (The figures have been adjusted according to the exchange rate). The number of staff increased from 2,390 to 2,862, according to REWE International AG press report.

The business figure increased mainly due to expansion - the network counts now 34 units, up from 28.

"We've invested in expanding the store chain on the Romanian market. This led to a higher number of staff and represents an important strategic move for our future actions", RWEW International AG board member Janusz Kulik informs. Billa opened a new depot last year in Brazi to optimize store deliveries.

BILLA will celebrate 10 years of activity on the Romanian market. The company aims to implement BILLA Club Card this year.
