SINCE 1981

A modern and flexible trading company

In the heart of Monaco and Ningbo

Italy – In the early 1970s, Marco and Massimo Barbaranelli, two young brothers who are entrepreneurs at heart decide to launch into the marketing of Italian products.

The companyEurimpex SAM has taken off in 1981, around stationery products for school supplies. Since 1985, Eurimpex enters supermarket chains and develops the first stationery products MDD. The major players in the sector will be seduced by this idea and the product ranges will diversify more and more, to give the result that we know today: more than 3000 references at your disposal in our catalog, for stationery and school luggage as well as office supplies.

In 2001, the company MDD SAM is created and responds to the ever-growing demand in our area of expertise.

Nowadays, grouped under the acronym Eurimpex MDD, the two companies work together to meet the needs and expectations of our customers as closely as possible.

Specializing in the distribution of brands and distributor products in the school and office supplies world, our company has offered a complete range of products and services since 1972. We have a privileged location for the supply of products with a high level competitive and qualitative service.

  • The idea of developing own brands for mass retail brands, at a time when no one believed in it, was the main driving force of my career. The vocation to create the best product for a third party, as if it were for my own brand, has confirmed the success we experience today with the brands of many distributors.

    Nowadays, many companies and personalities have built their success thanks to this idea. This vision was supported by my total involvement in each project. By creating a 100% successful product, a brand becomes a great brand.

    I have the enormous chance to work with my son Alessandro and my daughter Claudia who embody the values that I have always wanted to transmit, to remain a family business in a rapidly changing society. This gives me the strength and serenity to believe in our teams and in what we do every day.

    These companies are the result of significant commitment and vision. This site presents the result of several years of work and innovations. Years which will, I hope, give impetus to the following ones.

    Marco Barbaranelli

    I have the great pleasure of launching the first website presenting our two companies Eurimpex and MDD.

    I undertook to take over the family business with the objective of perpetuating these two beautiful structures which are the fruit of my father's work. During this handover, we want to preserve the company's assets, support its development, while providing it with real flexibility.

    The synergy created between our companies and our employees allows us to establish a relationship of trust with our customers.

    Our longevity lies in a clear vision of the French and European market as well as the expertise of the private label products that we offer. Our commitment to our customers is part of a quality approach which is both a management tool and continuous improvement of our results.

    I hope that through this site, you will get to know us better.

  • Already in the Lower Paleolithic, 300,000 years ago, our ancestors found Monaco to their liking. This craze has not been denied since!

    Inserted in the heart of the Riviera, the Principality has been governed since 1297 by the Grimaldi family. Nowadays, S.A.S. Albert II and his wife Princess Charleneembody the stability of a thriving economic and financial center.

    The glamorous image of the Principality must not make us forget its importance in the economic fabric of the region. The Principality employs more than 50,000 employeeswhich testify to the good entrepreneurial health of the Monegasque territory.

    The neighborhoodFontvieille where our premises are located was reclaimed from the sea in 1971. It is the most industrial part of Monaco, also famous for its stadium and its sports infrastructures.

    Our offices1000 square meters are located at Thales. Overlooking the sea and bathed in light, they are part of a group of several buildings including workshops and offices.

    The future commitments of our Prince in terms of economic development and the environment still portend good days ahead the Principality. As a Monegasque company, we want to be involved in these projects.
