StrongPoint ASA and Aste Finland Announce a Very Cool Partnership
StrongPoint ASA, a leading provider of grocery retail technology solutions, has signed a partnership and distribution agreement with Aste Finland, a leading provider of food and drink cooling devices and temperature-controlled grocery lockers for grocery e-commerce. Aste Finland already serves some of the biggest grocery retail companies in Finland.
The scope of the agreement provides StrongPoint with distribution rights of Aste’s solutions in StrongPoint’s eight core markets of UK, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, as well as other markets of strategic interest. The partnership also means that StrongPoint becomes the installation, service, and support partner of Aste’s solutions following any future sales secured by StrongPoint.
Aste Finland’s temperature-controlled grocery lockers and their ‘locker via a cool-room’ which allows locker access to an existing cool-room in a store, will be added to StrongPoint’s e-commerce product portfolio. Aste’s grocery locker solution will be offered as a complimentary option alongside StrongPoint’s proprietary grocery locker solution.
“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Aste Finland. Their extensive expertise in in-store food cooling devices and grocery lockers complements our capabilities in the retail technology space. We can now expand our offer of solutions to our customers, making StrongPoint even more relevant for grocery retailers, and bring Aste Finland’s solutions to more markets,” said Jacob Tveraabak, CEO of StrongPoint.
“Working with StrongPoint means we can help to scale our business and bring our world-class solutions to more customers in more countries. StrongPoint has an outstanding reputation for customer service and after-sales support which makes it a perfect partner to take our business to the next level,” said Jussi Salonen, CEO of Aste Finland.
