The story of MODIVO SA is one of getting off the beaten track and daring to implement new technologies in a flash.
Marcin Czyczerski becomes the CEO of MODIVO SA. The Company continues to develop its retail network by launching more brick-and-mortar stores - also abroad (Latvia and Slovakia). Marketplace MODIVO debuts on the Italian market, and the MODIVO platform starts online sales in Estonia.
The Company changes its name to MODIVO SA. The new name refers to the brand’s fashion offering and plans for further overseas expansion. In order to develop its business in foreign markets, the Group establishes the International Business Team. The MODIVO marketplace debuts in 2022 and other foreign stationary store is opened - this time in Bucharest, Romania.
Damian Zapłata becomes the CEO of eobuwie.pl. The Company attracts new investors, including SoftBank, and decides to further expand within Central and Eastern Europe. The first overseas logistics centre is launched in Bucharest. It will ultimately streamline deliveries to customers in this part of Europe. The first foreign eobuwie.pl and MODIVO shop opens in Prague, Czech Republic.
One of the key undertakings of 2019 is the creation of the new MODIVO sales platform that offers clothes, footwear and accessories. Eobuwie.pl is also seeing further growth, starting sales in Switzerland. In 2020, the Group opens a logistics centre in Nowy Kisielin, focusing on innovative solutions to streamline logistics processes.
The Group continues its international development by launching operations in Sweden, Greece, and Lithuania in 2017, followed by France, Spain and Italy in 2018. In 2018, the Group begins the construction of a new logistics centre in Zielona Góra. The year 2018 is primarily a time of innovation in the area of multi-channel sales – the Group launches its first brick and mortar shop and introduces esize.me, a tool that enables footwear selection based on 3D feet scanning.
In 2013, the Group begins international expansion with its debut in the Czech Republic, and launches operations in Slovakia already in the following year. In the next few years, the Group starts online sales in Germany, Romania, Ukraine, Hungary and Bulgaria. In 2016, the Group launches its first own logistics centre, and the CCC Group invests in the Company.
In 1996, the Company’s founders open their first brick and mortar shoe shops. In 2006, the Group starts online sales, the value of which is going to surpass that of traditional shops already in 2010.
