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 implementation effort 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.
