Brand portfolio strategy

We worked with Klöpfer to develop an overarching strategic concept for the company and service brand portfolios based on the company’s strengths and customer needs. This resulted in the creation of three brand areas: the »NetzwerkHolz« customer service program, »Klöpfer« retailer brand and »Weltholz« import division. Clearly defined and differentiated, this brand portfolio makes it possible to focus on each specific core business area, tap into growth opportunities and make Klöpfer the leading brand in the wood trade. 

Company tagline

 »Mit Klöpfer klappt’s« (»It works with Klöpfer«) expresses the company’s mindset as a partner to retailers and craftsmen. The slogan serves as a promise and anticipates the customers' perspective.

Image and product brochures

Customer orientation is the main element of Klöpfer’s strategic brand positioning. We consistently translated this mindset into the corporate image and product brochures to support company sales.

Showroom

The HolzForum reflects the company’s high standards in its concept, design and implementation: Klöpfer is a driving force in the wood trade. A key factor for the company’s success is its close relationship with its customers. Seven exhibition areas spanning 2,200 m2 provide ample space for intensive customer service.

Weltholz

Weltholz is the wood import brand of the Klöpfer group, responsible for supplying specialized dealers with different types of wood from around the world along with valuable marketing tools and information. The logo and name clearly visualize Weltholz’s areas of expertise. The tree trunks in different colors on the stylized globe indicate the diverse range of products as well as the company’s extensive reach.
