Sympatex is extending its sales structure across Eastern Europe due to the growing demand of high quality performance products in countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland following the expansion of the EU. Sympatex has increased its marketing expenditure in these countries in order to promote its wide product range in conjunction with its East European brand partners. It plans to provide brand partners with local support to build sales. Last year Sympatex reported an increase in turnover of 300 percent with local partners such as Alpine Pro, Humi Outdoor, Alp-VHR, Mons and Trek.
