STARK Group expands its branch network in Finland

STARK Group is expanding its footprint in Northern Finland by opening a new branch in Rovaniemi, thereby strengthening its regional presence and business network, now comprising 27 branches across Finland.

Rovaniemi is a growing city, with tourism and industrial investments being significant assets in the region. The new branch and pickup area, along with its product range, opening hours and logistic services, have been specifically designed and planned with a focus on serving the professional customers in the area.

STARK Group CEO, Søren P. Olesen says:

With this branch opening, we are enhancing our customer offering across Finland, spanning from the northern to the southern regions. The location of this branch significantly bolsters our network, and Rovaniemi stands as a dynamic and growing commercial hub in the northernmost province of Finland,” 

“Although the current outlook for the construction industry in Finland may seem challenging, we remain committed to looking beyond the present circumstances. That is why we persist in our investments and the ongoing development of our branch network to serve the professional tradespeople throughout Finland.”

With the opening, STARK Group continues to expand its branch network, which is a central step in the company’s growth strategy.
