STARK Group strengthens its branch network in Southern Sweden

STARK Group’s Swedish business, Beijer Byggmaterial, has officially opened its newly constructed branch in Växjö, reinforcing its foothold in the southern region of Sweden.

The opening in Växjö is Beijer Byggmaterial’s third branch opening within six months. In January, the company opened one of its largest builders’ merchants and distribution centres in Hisings Backa in Gothenburg. In November, a new branch opened in Kungälv, and later this year, Beijer will open a new logistics centre on the outskirts of Stockholm.

With the new state-of-the-art branch in Växjö, Beijer is strengthening its regional presence in eastern Götaland. The new facility, spanning approximately 15,000 square meters includes 2,000 square meters of retail space and an extensive drive-in that enhances the overall customer experience.

In recent years, Beijer's operations in Växjö have successfully captured and engaged the local market. The investment in the new Växjö branch signifies a new chapter for the local Beijer organisation, providing enhanced opportunities for sustainable, long-term growth, benefiting employees, customers and the local community.
