STARK Group expands its footprint in Norway
With the opening of a new branch in Frekhaug, Neumann Bygg strengthens its local presence in the western part of Norway. The new branch in Frekhaug is part of a larger plan for the western region, where another branch will open in spring 2023.
Neumann Bygg is cementing its presence and position in and around Bergen with the opening of a branch in Frekhaug and another branch in Drotningsvik next spring.
“It is a great day for us as we open branch number three in Bergen, and soon that number will turn into four. A lot of exciting things are going to happen here in Bergen. We are proud, decent and passionate, and we know that this team here in Bergen will succeed,” says Kjell Paulsrud, CEO of Neumann Bygg, in his opening speech.
The new branch in Frekhaug will include a store of 600 m2 and a warehouse of 2,000 m2.
With the opening, Neumann continues its growth strategy. Earlier this year, the company expanded its portfolio of branches with the acquisition of the strong and recognised one-branch specialist supplier of mouldings and profiles: Treprodukter Øst AS, as well as expanded and relocated a branch from Kaupanger to Sogndal in the western region.
The branch opened on 15 August 2022.
