The IMA Group at UPAKOVKA-UPAKITALIA 2010
The Russian market is potentially huge, given its population, and holds a lot of opportunities for existing companies in this area.
IMA can boast a long standing presence on the Russian market thanks to the branch office IMA EST Moscow. The IMA subsidiary has a dedicated sales and field service network for each of the leading business areas in the main sectors: IMA FLAVOUR, IMA ACTIVE Division, IMA LIFE and IMA SAFE. The subsidiary was opened many years ago in order to better understand and satisfy the requirements of the Russian industry which is an important and strategic market for our Group.
