Welcome to one of Sweden’s leading and most experienced players in the planning, development and fitting of retail environments!
A LOOK BACK
Butikskonsult started business in 1983. At that time, there were plenty of kiosks where customers stood outside and ordered their goods through a hole in the wall.
Our specialty was to develop such kiosks into small stores. We literally sawed out a bigger hole in the wall, allowing the customer to enter. The number of small stores grew and former kiosk owners gained the opportunity to develop their businesses.
IN 1990, DURING AN exhibition focusing on retail, we were awarded first prize in the competition for the best stand designed as a shop. That generated a good deal of attention. You could say that was what got the ball rolling. This accelerated further when soccer betting service Tipstjänst shortly thereafter introduce data terminals at their agents throughout the country. We were entrusted with supplying writing counters and terminal desks for the country’s approximately 3,000 Tipstjänst agents. Many stores also took the opportunity to rethink their front-of-store layouts. In quick succession, ATG, ICA and Coop also became customers and our operations grew further. In 2011, we took a major step in the development of the company, hiring ten new employees on the same day.
Today, Butikskonsult one of Sweden’s leading players in the planning, development and fitting of stores. We are located in Kumla, in central Sweden. We employ about 60 people and generate sales of slightly more than SEK 140 million annually.
We work with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), thereby assuming responsibility for our role in society with regard to social, ethical and environmental aspects.
Butikskonsult seeks to achieve a high level of efficiency in its consumption of energy and natural resources, to promote systems for the recovery and recycling of materials and to work to prevent contamination and all types of work-related sickness or injury. Alongside our suppliers, we seek long-term profitability and transparent financial reporting that includes aspects of CSR. Together with our suppliers, we are developing our goods and services to always be produced under conditions that comply with:
