kurts goes Lithuania
Beginning in December 2019, we are proud to be in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. Four massive container modules have left our production hall in Einbeck for the Baltics. Our first-ever station outside of our home market of Germany will be ready to use in January 2020. We are looking forward to the feedback from our friends in digitally savvy Lithuania. For our part, we are certain that kurts will be a hit with do-it-yourselfers there too.
Developing more station types
Expanding to urban areas requires new station types. In addition to our two-story "Cube" stations, we now offer "City" stations that mesh seamlessly into any city wall. In the future, these compact tool stations will store professional tools for everyday needs in the big city.
New tool stations opened in Stade
In mid-September 2019, we opened two new tool stations in the Hamburg, Germany suburb of Stade. These are located in the same place as the first station: in the parking lot of the Toom hardware store in the Schölisch neighborhood. We received elated tool renters on opening day, who can now find professional tools on two floors west of Hamburg. What’s new? The station is the first to rent a Takeuchi mini excavator. It’s the next step in our continuous expansion and dedication to opening up stations in new cities and countries.
Digital Champions Award for kurts toolbox
At the “Digital X North” awards, we received the Digital Champions Award. In the category “Digital Transformation MSE,” we were able to impress the high-ranking jury with our design concept. The competition is held by Telekom and German trade publication Wirtschaftswoche. Fabian Schuster (CCO) and Marco Ivers (Brand & Design Manager) took home the award in front of 1500 industry experts at the Hamburg Fish Auction Hall. It’s an incredible honor and were are thrilled with the fantastic award.
