NORWEGIAN TURNKEY SUCCESS
With Black Friday scenes in the middle of May, jem & fix’s launch in Norway was off for a good start with no less than four store openings in just one day. A success which was the result of a targeted ambition to introduce the Danish budget home improvement concept with polite self-service to the rest of the Nordic countries.
We have worked with jem & fix on the design and fitting of their Danish stores since 2001, and we are honored that they chose Expedit and our TURNKEY solution when Norway was to be conquered.
EXPEDIT THROUGHOUT THE NORDIC REGION
We are branched out with subsidiaries in the entire Nordic region. When our customers grow and penetrate new markets, we follow along. It gives peace of mind when processes, quality and work ethics are the same across borders. This was the decisive factor when jem & fix chose Expedit as their partner to handle the rollout in Norway.
“SEAMLESS ROLLOUT OF FOUR COMPLETE STORES IN ONE DAY - THAT'S IMPRESSIVE”

TURNKEY: FULL PROJECT MANAGEMENT
On top of co-creating the shop design along with jem & fix, Expedit handled all staffing, coordination of sub-suppliers and project management when building the Norwegian stores. And that's a clear-cut advantage. Our longstanding collaboration with jem & fix means that we are geared to upscaling concepts fast and roll out multiple stores at the same time without delay or unpleasant surprises.
Expedit has worked with jem & fix since the turn of the millennium. And as with all partnerships that go back a long way, it gives confidence knowing what each other's strengths and preferences are. It has created a common ground and has given us an in-depth understanding of what is important for jem & fix.
