leading sales and retail merchandising solutions

Founded in 2005, Impact Merchandising (IMS) is a retail merchandising business that prides itself in delivering world class excellence to its principals, retailers, and consumers. The business has enjoyed strong and passionate relationships with its clients and staff ensuring growth and success for all parties. Through organic growth in the SADC region Beverage Merchandising Zambia (BMZ) emerged in 2009 entrenching the belief that great relationships and world class services were key to regional organic growth. Triple B Sales & Merchandising (BBB) emerged in 2012 as the FMCG synergized solution to the BMZ business in Zambia introducing an IT driven sales and merchandising field force supported by an activation’s business further embedding itself as a leading service provider in Zambia. The success of the organic growth allowed the business which had now set up its head office out of Lusaka, Zambia to start to offer a regional service to its clients and in so opened Strategic sales & Merchandising services (SSMS) in Malawi. As a group of companies there are offices in Gaborone, Blantyre, Lusaka and Kitwe.
