If you had told us that one day we would run a global merchandise business, we would have flat-out called you "crazy".Back then, we were a couple of young and pragmatic entrepeneurs with a passion for our webshop business and for Electronic Dance Music. We studied the worldwide merchandise business and saw that nobody was delivering a global, localized solution for a price that didn't break the bank. So we set our vision, and Fanfiber was born.
Toine (1976) is co-founder of Intrastores, established in 2007 in the Netherlands.

Currently Intrastores owns various fully localized webshops in 13 European countries. Salesupply currently helps over 250 international webshops with market-research, consultancy, operational support and traffic generation from their local offices in Europe, Russia, Brazil and China.
