Henkel featured Solution Group from a pool of other partners because this is something unique that they can shout about.

“The initiative we launched with ForestNation in 2021 along with others, are now showing the first results. What we are perceiving the most is the positioning of the Solution Group brand as a supplier amongst our customers. We are stuck in their minds as the company who does things differently and that will make their purchasing more meaningful.

It has also helped our sales force concentrate on the philosophy of the company when trying to create lead generation rather than proposing products that any supplier is able to provide. We do exactly the same things but with an added value and we now represent something and have a strong identity.”
