A life well lived starts at home. Europe2You furnishes that home.
Europe2You is an importer and distributor of European home décor and furniture. They are the main distributor for the United States and Canada for the products sourced and produced in Europe.
“Our owner, Stacy Borocz, and her husband both live in Europe. They wanted to bring that style and experience over to the United States, realizing there was a need for it. Our company has sold a lot of antiques and we remake antiques as well. Our tabletop items and furniture have a very rustic look to them,” said Gregory Callas, Logistics Manager at Europe2You.
The company practices a sustainability model for sourcing and producing their products, including use of recycled materials and environmentally-friendly production practices.
Callas commented on his favorite part of working for Europe2You…
“With Europe2You being a small company, the culture’s really neat here. Everyone is really nice and we have a good environment.”
“We’re a very open company and everybody plays a lot of different roles, which makes it exciting because things are always changing and you always have to be on your toes. There’s a lot of creativity and problem solving involved, especially with our warehouse for example. With so many products, we have to be creative with how we use our warehouse space, as well as when we receive our goods and when we ship them – that’s an exciting part of it.”
Europe2You: Modernizing business practices
Europe2You originally began with using pen and paper, spreadsheets, and memory to manage their inventory.
“The company started in our owner’s garage with one or two vendors so the system behind that was basically memory: what do we have and what can we sell it for?” said Callas.
Since starting the company, Europe2You has seen steady growth and product innovation yearly.
“We’ve been growing about 15% annually and we have around 1500 different products, which are always moving, changing, and being redefined throughout the year. We have trade show seasons so we go and show our goods in major cities around the U.S. such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, and Atlanta, which is our home base,” Callas said.
Europe2You now sells its products to major retailers around the nation. As a growing company, spreadsheets, pen and paper, and memorization became ineffective for keeping track of inventory.
