Lindab adds new sales channels within Ventilation

Lindab opened its first unmanned branch with self-scanning in Gent, Belgium, earlier this week. The innovative sales concept, Flexi Shop, has been developed and successfully employed by a Belgian company that was acquired by Lindab in May.

​President and CEO, David Brodetsky comments:
"Flexi Shop is an excellent complement to our manned branches. It is entirely in line with our aim of making life easier for our customers and giving them the best service. Thanks to the Flexi Shop being open 24/7, our customers can plan their working day and pick up their goods when it best suits them and their customers.
We have strong focus on expanding and developing the sales channels within the Ventilation business area and this is just one of many examples. I can also mention that we have added new selling points in Lille and Bordeaux, France, and that we will be opening a new branch on the island of Gotland, Sweden."
