- For a long time we have wanted to establish a location in Karlskoga, and now we have found a good location for Byggmax, where a lot of people pass. Our stores in Örebro and Karlstad are doing well, so it feels great to be able to open in Karlskoga. Says Daniel Svensk, regional manager at Byggmax.

Nitarevägen in Karlskoga is a good location, with a large space and the opportunity to establish Byggmax’s concept. Overall, a retail space of approximately 8000 sqm is necessary, where the retail store and the drive-in occupy the most space. Byggmax’s concept is based on offering customers quality products at a low prices, where customers can do a part of the job themselves to keep the costs down. Byggmax in Karlskoga will be the second store in Värmland. Byggmax’s experience is that people in Värmland are competent DIY-customers and professionals who want quality at a low cost.
