Swedish building materials retailer has expanded fast after entering the Finnish market in 2008.

Swedish building materials retailer Byggmax has opened two new stores in Finland, located in Kangasala near the city of Tampere and in Seinäjoki, western Finland. Byggmax entered the Finnish market in 2008 and now has 12 stores across the country. The company is aiming to expand its national network to 20–25 stores in total.

“We are very happy with our new stores in Kangasala and Seinäjoki which are in excellent locations in busy shopping areas alongside major highways,” says Rainer Sundkvist, Byggmax’s country manager in Finland.
The 2000 square metre store in Kangasala includes a Drive-in pick-up point.

Successful concept

Byggmax primarily sells building materials to the private sector and end consumers. According to Byggmax, the company’s business concept is to be the best and cheapest supplier of quality building materials to consumers.

The other Finnish stores are located in Turku, Jyväskylä, Lahti, Espoo, Pori, Porvoo, Raisio, Vaasa and Vantaa.
