Scavolini goes global: the brand´s retail expansion across the world continues


19 junio, 2014

Constant growth in international retail is increasingly distinguishing Scavolini´s strategy. The brand opened 20 new stores across the world in 2013 alone: Australia, Russia, Nigeria, Colombia, the Philippines, Lebanon and Florida, to name but a few.

Continúa la expansión minorista de Scavolini en el mundoAn active distribution policy with an unstoppable development plan is what Scavolini, a world-wide company that has always focused on distribution as a fundamental asset for expansion, is proving to be implementing.

The “Brand ambassador” of style and quality Made in Italy, one of the most popular Italian brands in this sector across the globe, currently Scavolini boasts over 1,300 sales points world-wide with more than 70 Scavolini Stores abroad and more than 90 in Italy. These include the Scavolini Soho Gallery, to date the largest kitchen sales point in the whole of Manhattan.

This successful strategy is based not only on an effective and targeted choice of ongoing development of its network, but also on developing products that are designed to meet the specific tastes and requirements of each individual country and based on a communication policy focusing on “brand recognition” that guarantees major visibility for the company@¬#s strengths.
The strength of Scavolini indeed lies in the ability to renovate and restyle, retaining a strong brand identity, while at the same time satisfying and anticipating market requirements.

The first half of 2014 saw the inauguration of a prestigious Store in Chicago in February, followed by other major openings in Houston in Texas, Barranquilla and Bogotá in Colombia. Fifteen other openings are expected to take place before the year is out, and these include the Scavolini Store project in Taipei, Marbella and Burgos, supported by the opening of new sales points in the United Kingdom, Turkey, Jordan, Israel and Russia.

Step by step Scavolini is gradually expanding its network and consolidating an international globalisation project which began several years ago. Recently "conquered" territories include: South America, Africa and the Far East.

This non-stop international expansion with an average of 20 inaugurations a year is major proof of the brand@¬#s solidity, which ended the year 2013 with annual sales of € 175 million and a two-digit growth in exports, confirming once again the position of absolute leadership in the kitchen market that Scavolini has held in Italy since 1984. This strength has encouraged it to launch the recent range extensions with the Scavolini Bathrooms brand and the living room collections.
