Third-largest distributor in Italy
Turnover 2016-2018 - in billions of Euros
Selex, the third-largest retail distribution group in Italy, is made up of 14 member companies, all of which have deep roots in the local economy and many of which are also local market leaders.
The Group has grown steadily in recent years. Between January 2008 and January 2018, Selex expanded its share of the hypermarket/supermarket/ convenience store/cash & carry channels by 3.5 percentage points, from 8.4% to 11.9% (Source: IRI). With a retail network of 2,368 outlets (September 2018) ranging from hypermarkets to convenience stores located in 90 provinces and in more than 1,700 municipalities, and with a combined total floorage of 2.1 million square metres, Selex can cater to the different needs of its customers up and down the country.
Highly responsive to local demand
Because its member companies are so well integrated into local economies and are therefore capable of responding meaningfully to local needs and demands, Selex has been outperforming its rivals for years. The Group continued its robust performance in 2017 with a turnover of €10.5 billion (up 4.4%) on the previous year. Operating in a market that continues to fluctuate, Selex has continued to open new stores and to restructure existing ones, thus reinforcing the strength and quality of its network.
For the financial year 2018, the companies of the Selex group allocated more than € 330 million to fund an ambitious programme for the development and modernization of its outlets (an increase of 50% with respect to 2017).
