Historic launch for Biltema
Biltemas´ 142nd catalogue is launching Monday August 19th, and this time the retailer isn´t only distributing one, but two catalogues! Biltema Original is a separate, new catalogue containing the complete selection of spare parts for cars, and will be distributed along with the main catalogue to several households in the Nordic countries. Biltema Original takes it back to the beginning, and at the same time expanding the range with several new products for the entire family.
“For more than half a century we´ve been hard at work developing our product range. We´re now at the point where the selection is so broad and detailed that we decided to dedicate an entire catalogue for our car parts and its specialized tools. Biltema Original has more than 100 pages with over 5000 different car parts for nearly 6000 car models. We´ve been buying and selling car parts for nearly 60 years, so this is well on target for our core business”, says CEO of the Biltema Group, Knut R. Svenningsen.
In addition to Biltema Original, the well-known chain is introducing nearly 1400 new items this season for the whole family to enjoy. “We have a lot of fresh and exciting products in this catalogue, including a lot more for home interior, premium dog food, and an electric snow thrower that will surely make your snowy workouts easier to get through”, continues Svenningsen.
The product range isn´t the only area that´s been advancing in Biltema over the years. “We remain firm in maintaining and increasing physical shops, yet we need to grow with our customers , and a natural progression is to lay heavy on digital development. Our efforts and focus in this area has led to our entire assortment being viewable online, AI-technology to help users remember necessary add-on products while on the website, myBiltema to - amongst other benefits- keep all receipts digital and safely stored, a new updated version of our app that will launch this autumn, and last but not least; Pay&Collect for all our customers that we aim to launch later this year. Needless to say we´ve got big plans in the years to come,” concludes Svenningsen.
