Great passion and expertise for retail marketing are part of the DNA of Schwitzke Project GmbH.
“As part of the Schwitzke Group, our roots lie in the project management and implementation of retail spaces and shopfitting concepts,” points out Karl-Heinz Schwoll, Managing Director of Schwitzke Project.
“We are able to look at the projects through the eyes of our customers, being able to draw on the experience of a retail expert. We have realized a lot of different projects and are able to provide all required services when it comes to turnkey construction and shopfitting of retail and other spaces.”
The Tommy Hilfiger flagship store on Regent Street, New Balance on the famous Oxford Street in London, Hugendubel in Munich, Chanel, Topshop or Abercrombie & Fitch are just a few of the many references of Schwitzke Project. The company is active on an international scale and has become a preferred partner for renowned brands, convincing its customers with perfect timing, clearly calculated costs and with the best quality.
Meanwhile, clients from other sectors have become aware of the performance of Schwitzke Project and the turnkey construction solution provider has also become active in the gastronomy sector, has realized office spaces and has expanded its business into the area of center and building refurbishments.
“The retail industry is undergoing a process of significant change,” states Mr. Schwoll. “Stationary retail is slightly decreasing, while retail and leisure blend together steadily. We have adapted our portfolio to this development and are already working together with customers such as Vapiano or Hans im Glück.”
Schwitzke Project is part of a strong group, which covers the complete portfolio of solutions for companies in the retail sector. Schwitzke Graphics provides services in the areas strategic brand consultancy, corporate identity and branding, while Schwitzke & Partner is responsible for the design development, architecture and planning. With the highly professional project management and turnkey implementation, Schwitzke Project completes the full range of services, not only in the retail sector.
“Customers can decide whether they want to have the complete package from Schwitzke or just individual modules,” explains Mr. Schwoll. “That is another benefit for our clients. Within the group, we are active on an international scale, being able to overcome transnational obstacles. This way we help them to realize their international expansion with a relatively small team on their side.”
Schwitzke Project has successfully realized a large number of projects, covering all services related to construction from one single source. With an effective management, all subsections of a project are coordinated, including site investigations, the technical engineering and furnishing. The company continuously works on optimizing its processes to achieve even better results for its customers.
“We do not want to rest on our success, but maintain a selfcritical contemplation, to learn from possible mistakes,” mentions the Managing Director, who has been working for the Schwitzke Group for more than 20 years. “We also work with LEAN Construction Management methods and have been able to achieve considerable successes regarding the quality and construction times of our projects.”
Another important factor for Schwitzke Project is sustainability and the company is among the pioneers when it comes to sustainable store concepts, being part of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and also able to realize projects with LEED Gold certification.
The turnkey solution provider for complex construction projects has become an important player in the industry, with over 90 employees and a turnover of more than 40 million EUR. In the future, the projects will be getting bigger and more complex for the company, and also the new business sectors will be a focus for Schwitzke Project. Based on its experience, knowledge and network, the company has everything it takes to face the challenges of the future.
