The word BAUHAUS means “construction house” in German, and the company of the same name is a Swiss-headquartered European retail chain specializing in products for home improvement, gardening, tools, and outdoor living. The first BAUHAUS store opened in Mannheim, Germany in 1960 and over the years, the business has grown to over 250 stores across Europe.
BAUHAUS Sweden began their online journey in 2011 with Adobe Magento Open Source and routinely upgraded to the latest and greatest technology the solution had to offer. BAUHAUS launched their first B2B site in Sweden in January 2015 as a “pet project.” It has since grown into the fastest growing BAUHAUS online store in all of Europe in 2017, offering more than 50,000 products, from gas grills to tool sheds, and bathroom fixtures to solar patio lighting.
As the business expanded, so did their vision of the role of e-commerce as a key business driver. In 2017, BAUHAUS chose to upgrade their B2B online operation to Adobe Commerce.
