Palmberg has been chosen by the dealers as the best office furniture manufacturer in Germany for the third time in a row. In the biennial election organized by the trade magazine ‘Markt Intern‘, the dealers rate their suppliers on 12 different criteria. Behind winner Palmberg Wini and Oka Büromöbel ranked as respective second and third.
First place in 8 out of 12 categories
Palmberg finished in first place in 8 of the 12 categories, and managed to slightly improve the average score of two years ago. Julianne Utz, CEO at Palmberg, is proud of the new election: “This new election to Fachhandelspartner 2018 (reseller partner 2018, OR) after our earlier prizes in 2014 and 2016 makes us extremely proud. The outcome of this survey makes it clear to our customers that the new generation that is now at the helm at Palmberg has not changed the core values of our company. In addition, our score is a reward for everyone who is working intensively with our company on a daily basis. Above all, the fact that this prize is based on the opinion of the German resellers, and not on the opinion of a jury is particularly valuable to us ”
Resellers reviewed all aspects of the cooperation between reseller and manufacturer
The result of the Market Internal Research is based on the average score on twelve sub-questions. The office furniture resellers are asked to rank the manufacturers among others on: Realizable trade margin, turnover rate, product quality, price-quality ratio, recycling / environmental aspects, delivery reliability, service, training and field service support.
With a score of 1.70 (on a scale of 1 to 5 with a 1 as the highest possible rating), Palmberg improved the score of 1.79 from 2016 and remained well ahead of Wini (1.99) and Oka Büromöbel (2.00).
