Growth in international markets, especially in Europe, is an important strategic factor for today’s specialist trade. As a cross-border purchasing, marketing and service network, NORDWEST creates decisive advantages in international trade with its target-oriented range of services. Trade partners in 16 neighbouring European countries value the trustful cooperation they share with us. Conscious of the differences between German and international markets, we adapt our growth concepts at the local level – as a tailor-made basis for your success. Our healthy communication with cooperation partners, trading companies and manufacturers throughout Europe ensure that we remain both close to the market and independent – this is the basis from which we can consistently drive forward the targeted expansion of our international activities with our employees both in Germany and on site at other locations.

Sales services 
for your international growth

The NORDWEST trade association offers centralised product procurement, a large logistics centre and comprehensive services. A key advantage is access to a wide, in-depth assortment of products from well-known manufacturers in the steel, construction, trades & industry and building services sectors, for which we as a purchasing group can offer attractive conditions. Fast and reliable product availability is a further advantage: More than 60,000 articles are available via the state-of-the-art NORDWEST central warehouse – articles that we can have delivered throughout Europe within 48 to 72 hours.

Tool technology catalogues are available in the national languages of the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Poland. An English-language version of the extensive printed catalogue is also available. The range is further extended by article data in various national languages and customised marketing measures. In addition, we offer competitive advantages with our exclusive brand PROMAT in top quality and with a very good price-performance ratio.
