The retail industry is currently undergoing a significant global change, online shopping is growing rapidly and the design of the physical stores are looking for new forms. To ensure and strengthen Fagerhult's competitiveness in this changing market, we will reorganize and consolidate our processes by bringing together our Retail, Indoor and Outdoor businesses in the same company.
As one of the three priority areas in our strategy, Retail is a very important business area for Fagerhult. With this change, we have clarified the ownership of the Fagerhult brand and streamlined the organization by coordinating certain functions.
"We will strengthen our production and delivery capacity, and become an even more flexible supplier to our customers,” says Patrik Malin, Managing Director at Fagerhult Retail AB.
As part of this change, Fagerhult Retail AB will undergo a reorganization, where the Retail sales organization for the Swedish market will be integrated with Fagerhults Belysning Sverige AB and other parts will be integrated with Fagerhults Belysning AB.
The sales departments with direct customer contact will remain in Bollebygd, while development, assembly and warehousing will move to Fagerhult in Habo. All employees have been offered the opportunity to accompany the business transition.
"The purpose of the change is to give our customers an even better service and competitive offer," concludes Patrik Malin.
This structural reorganization has no impact on the point of contact or service for our customers. From a legal perspective, there is a change to any on-going agreements with the contract moving from Fagerhult Retail AB to Fagerhults Belysning AB. Further information on how this change will be implemented will be issued shortly.
