Founded in 1998, Est Expansion is a consulting company providing strategic advice and business development assistance to European companies in their distribution, investment, production and sourcing projects in Ukraine.

The double culture of our local team as well as its technical, commercial and sector-specific competences offers a first-rate expertise.
  • Virbac is the first international independent laboratory dedicated to animal health. The Group wanted to have a deeper understanding of Ukrainian market and to find new distributors for its products. On our request, a market study on Animal Health followed by research of distributors was conducted by Est Expansion. The cooperation proved to be very satisfactory as both targets set up by the Group were achieved. Est Expansion team remained pragmatic, driven by the willingness to meet our requirements, in terms of information quality as well as in terms of deadlines. Moreover, the established relationship with Est Expansion was very pleasant.

  • We needed to deliver our equipment to a client in Ukraine who wanted a turn-key solution (to import the irrigation system, to deliver it directly to his place and to launch its functioning). Est Expansion knew how to satisfy our requirement in a very short deadlines regarding logistics aspects, and then by meeting our installation manager, by supplying specific equipment and specialized team of workers to make the installation itself. Since, we continue our cooperation with Est Expansion on installations destined for our key accounts, they also coordinate our activities towards distributors and provide them with necessary specialized support in commercial, technical and administrative aspects.

We are very satisfied with the value of bilingual team who perfectly understands their subject.

  • Being a manufacturer of die and wear parts designed for granulation producing plants, we are exporting to Ukraine for a few months now. Est Expansion is our local partner since our very first steps on the market (February 2010) till today when we have there a French-speaking collaborator in charge of the follow-up of our current and potential clients (she is dealing with commercial offers, contracts, orders, …). In our partner, Est Expansion, we have found flexible, pragmatic, and very well-adapted structure capable to accompany a SME like ours in this country. We can only recommend them if you want to establish your business in Ukraine.

  • After conducting an on-the-ground market study on mines, steel industry and quarries sectors, Est Expansion has accompanied us during our prospecting mission in Ukraine. This mission, busy scheduled and well-organized, enabled us to meet key representatives in the sectors we have targeted. Thus, we have quickly confirmed the important potential of Ukrainian market for our metallurgical products. With the support of Est Expansion, we have soon received an important order for foundry pieces. We are already considering another mission in Ukraine in order to continue our setting-up on the market.
