They want to become “Europe’s leading B2B buying platform for technical operational needs”. So the company will focus on selling technology to business customers in the future.

A B2B branch of this type has been in operation in Hürth (NRW) for about two years, and other locations are said to be being researched. As a result, the only branch is operated in Wernberg-Köblitz, Bavaria. All other branch locations will be closed during the year.
