STARK Danmark is building a new branch in Nuuk
STARK Group’s Danish subsidiary, STARK Danmark, is building a new branch in Nuuk. The branch will be twice as large as the existing one.
A drive-in hall, a larger store, all building materials under one roof and better facilities for both customers and employees; these are just some of the benefits of the new and modern branch that STARK Danmark is building in Nuuk, Greenland.
“This project shows our belief in the future growth and development in Greenland. During recent years, we have seen a massive increase in investments and building projects in Nuuk and other areas of Greenland. That is why we are investing in this market where we see a continued and large growth potential. Nuuk will be the focal point for our activities in Greenland,” says CEO of STARK Danmark, Britta Korre Stenholt.
The new branch in Nuuk will have a gross area of more than 5,500 sqm. One of the major improvements in relation to the current branch is that all building materials are placed under a roof. With the arctic climate in Greenland, it is a great advantage for the customers, who can pick up their goods in a drive-in, and also for the employees who can work indoors. With the new and improved branch, STARK Nuuk can stock and display some of the best brands and products for construction to serve as inspiration for large and small construction projects.
“With this new branch, we will get more storage space. This is a clear advantage as it takes time to get the building materials sailed to Greenland. With more storage space, we get shorter delivery times and increased availability of a wide range of building materials locally in Nuuk. In addition, it will also be possible, to a greater extent than today, to deliver goods to customers on the coast and the five other branches in Greenland,” says Poul Erik Nørnberg, Director in STARK Grønland.
STARK has been present in Greenland since 1983 and has stores in Nuuk, Aasiaat, Ilulissat, Qaqortoq, Sisimiut and Tasiilaq. The new branch in Nuuk will open during the summer of 2022.
