Kährs Group, a Swedish Europe-leading manufacturer and distributor of premium flooring, has signed a distribution agreement with commercial carpet tile supplier modulyss for sales in the Nordic markets.

Kährs Group and the Belgium based company modulyss has entered into a partnership allowing for Kährs Group to sell modulyss carpet tiles in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The agreement is effective from January 1, 2019.

Kährs Group recently announced its revised customer channel strategy, which includes a reinforced focus on the project market and a broadening of the flooring offering with new product categories. The new categories complement Kährs current offering, while modulyss share the same values and quality standards, which have been decisive factors in locating the right partner. 

“The partnership with modulyss is a perfect fit to our revised strategy, as we have a clear objective of becoming a full range supplier of hard and soft flooring options on commercial projects”, said Christer Persson, President & CEO of Kährs Group.

“We are enthusiastic about introducing modulyss carpet tiles to our customers in the Nordic markets. modulyss and Kährs share the same belief in what premium products stand for in terms of design, quality and sustainability. These factors have been carefully evaluated and are also prerequisites for a partnership that we expect will be much appreciated by our customers”, Christer Persson continues.

“We look forward to this collaboration with Kährs Group, a company we believe can convey the qualities and values of our products in the best possible way. We see great opportunity for the modulyss brand in the Nordic market under this partnership, said André Kerckhof, Sales Director CEE & Scandinavia for modulyss.
