STARK Group's branch in Nacka awarded builders' merchant of the year in Sweden
Beijer Byggmaterial’s branch in Nacka has been awarded builders’ merchant of the year. An award that is given to a builders’ merchant that, through its work with sustainability, motivates and inspires others in the industry. The award was presented by the Association of Swedish Building Materials Merchants.
Beijer has won the award for its strategic partnership with Nacka vatten och avfall to recycle building materials. Together they have created a circular flow for wood, where customers can leave their wood at the recycling station. Beijer then takes care of the materials and ensures that what can be reused is sold as recycled wood to customers instead of going to waste.
Head of Sustainability at Beijer Byggmaterial, Alexandra Rosenkvist says:
“For Beijer, it is obvious that recycled building materials are part of the future of construction. We continuously work to find circular concepts, something that is strongly needed in the new environmental certifications of buildings that are underway. We are counting on our customers to join us on this journey, and we are already seeing that there is an interest in circular solutions.”
The purpose of the award is to draw attention to a builders’ merchant who leads as an example for the industry from a sustainability, digitalisation or attractiveness perspective. Byggmaterialhandlarna, who presented the award, wants to highlight good examples that create inspiration and motivation for others in the industry. More than 30 companies were nominated before the summer, and the jury, which consists of The Association of Swedish Building Materials Merchants, appointed five finalists. Since then, almost 1,300 people have voted for the winner of the award.
