Hultafors Group wins Alligo award, Supplier of the year

Hultafors Group has been appointed “Supplier of the year” on both the Norwegian and the Swedish markets by Alligo, a leading wholesale supplier of workwear, personal protective equipment, and tools, in the Nordic region.

The Alligo jury's motivation:

Hultafors Group clicks on all the criteria to become supplier of the year; they have contributed with strong sales support to both Field and- stores sales and in an exemplary way assisted in the consolidation of our product range. Their Nordic KAM organization collaborates nicely with our category organization and during the year Hultafors Group - and we - have had a nice growth in all their brands - Hultafors, Wibe Ladders, Hellberg and Solid Gear. Thank you, Hultafors Group, for a really good partnership! And for your commitment to everything that we do together!

Cai Essen, Region Director Nordics thanks everyone involved building up the partnership. “As a group we have a unique offering with premium products and a proactive and high-quality service for our partners. I believe our genuine approach to always strive to create real value for both our customers and the end users are the reasons we now win these awards. We are all very proud and filled with energy to continue grow our collaboration forward!”

Hanne Nordanger, KAM, at Hultafors Group Norway describe the collaboration with TOOLS Norway: “2022 was an exciting and groundbreaking year for our collaboration. We spent the year developing good relationships, rebuilding stores, and seeing new opportunities together. Our local sales representatives have gotten to know their stores and their employees. Everywhere we have been well received and made many new friends. We are in the best position to achieve success together, and we will do what we can to help TOOLS reach new heights. 2022 was just the beginning.“
