PHIAS was founded in 2005 in Madrid (Spain) with the goal to provide commercial services – mainly Marketing & Sales – to companies that want to establish or expand business in Europe.
At the beginning of 2012 we moved the company to Trujillo, near Cáceres (Extremadura – Spain), which is a 2,5 hour drive from Madrid by highway.
We operate from the pristine region that is Extremadura, close the National Park of Monfragüe which is an excellent and renowned site for birdwatchers from all over the world.
What are you looking for?
You can ‘take the temperature’ of a region or specific market, ask for a market research in order to define key customers and distribution partners, get tradeshow support, get your product promoted with personal presence to key prospects or help you with other specific ‘spot’ support. And that’s of course not the end of the list.
And, surely that all this goes under your own company name or brand, and we operate for you in the background. Extremely customer minded (it’s not the company that pays the salary, it’s the customer) and solution driven, PHIAS will always strive to find the best option for the parties involved.
30 Years of Experience throughout various countries and with various cultures. With business having become an intensively global matter, business people have been forced to adapt and work together with people from various regions and various cultures. Markets and customers that once were exclusive to you, suddenly have opened to other providers and competitors. To maintain your business or to keep growing, new markets with another mentality and habits are needed to be looked upon. Entering new markets can be tricky if you’re not acquainted with language and local habits.
Peter Hemelaer, owner of PHIAS, has been living and working in international environments since his youth. At school already, classmates came from all over the world which laid the foundation for openness to and acceptance of other people and cultures.
