bk Group is awarded the contract for global facility management of all Asics stores in Europe

bk Group, Europe's market leader and general contractor for shop fitting and property design as well as retail facility management, based in Endsee, convinces after a successful test phase and still continues its growth course.

With high-quality and innovative sports shoes, Asics has made a name for itself all over the world. The internationally operating Japanese company based in Kobe is one of the five largest brands in the sports shoe market and has branches all over the world, with the European market being served from its headquarters in Amsterdam.

After an intensive test phase, the European headquarters of the Japanese sports shoe manufacturer deliberately opted for bk Group’s unique All-In maintenance concept because it meets all requirements for comprehensive support of the Asics stores throughout Europe.

The contract for the salesroom maintenance of the Asics Stores currently covers nearly 100 branches in 13 European countries and includes also the Onitsuka Tiger brand stores. Within this framework, bk Group takes over all tasks of a full service provider with immediate effect: from regular maintenance and repair services or immediate help in emergency cases up to comprehensive inspection services according to the legal prescriptions of the various countries.

bk Group’s CEO Gerold Wolfarth expresses his big joy: "We are very pleased about this order, as it confirms the high quality and performance density of our facility and maintenance services. This is indeed our goal: to convince with unique added value and all-in carefree support, to give security and to relieve our customers of their burdens. In a way that they don't have to worry about anything besides their business. This is the reason why meanwhile more than 4,700 store managers of leading international retail companies entrust their Europe-wide branch support to bk Group".

bk Group is the only provider in Europe that guarantees its customers a salesroom support that covers all European regions and at the same time fully meets all requirements concerning technical quality standards and legal requirements. More than 200 highly qualified employees, engineers and technicians from 27 European countries and an intelligent logistics management with over 11,000 trade partners ensure short reaction times and take care of trouble-free operation of all supported stores around the clock.

Also the managers in the European headquarters of the Japanese group are pleased: "We have chosen bk Group because the company has convinced us with a coherent global concept, maximum flexibility and its many years of retail experience. The successful results of the test period also give us the security that bk Group will be a reliable and competent partner for our European store network," comments a Group spokesman from the Procurement division on the company’s decision.
