Byggmax opened new store in Tønsberg in Norway
Byggmax opened a new store in Tønsberg this morning. Byggmax continues to grow and now operates a total of 27 stores in Norway. One store manager and four full-time employees has been hired for the new store at Semsbyveien. 
Byggmax sells construction materials such as lumber, flooring, dry-wall, cement, windows, doors and paint to both professionals and DIY-customers. The Byggmax concept offers good quality products at low prices.

In May 2012 Byggmax was nominated as the cheapest building supplies chain by TV2 hjelper deg. The survey was based on purchasing the materials needed to build a 20 m2 patio. The cost of purchasing these materials from Byggmax was NOK 4,211, while the same materials purchased from the most expensive competitor amounted to NOK 7,377, i.e. a price difference of more than NOK 3,000. Byggmax has also performed best in previous price comparisons. In a price test conducted in August 2011 by the Fedrelandsvennen newspaper, Byggmax emerged as the clear winner in a survey comparing the prices of four building supply chains.
