Swedol

Tools and work clothes for professionals

Swedol operates through c.95 stores and an omni-channel concept where all sales channels work together to create a unique Swedol experience. This setup is challenging larger companies within the professional segment. Swedol offers a broad range of products that combines quality and value and includes both external brands and strong private labels. The group consists of c.50% workwear and personal protection and c.50% tools and supplies.

Increased cross-selling with Swedol and Grolls, leverage of existing sales force. M&A potential to reach the ambition of SEK 5bn in 2020. The recent years’ integration work could bear more synergies than we currently assume.

Nordic construction activity, acquisition integration issues, intensified competition in the workwear segment.
