Long term Bigbelly partner with success in Sweden, Finland, and Norway expands distribution territory to include Denmark
Bigbelly, Inc. is pleased to today announce that it has signed an agreement with EWF ECO AB of Rimbo, Sweden that extends EWF’s current distributor rights for Sweden, Norway and Finland to now include Denmark. This partnership further supports the thriving international growth of the world leading Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system.
“EWF has done an outstanding job developing Bigbelly’s business in Sweden, Norway and Finland with notable success in Stockholm for example where the total number of Bigbelly smart solar-powered compacting and non-compacting bins installed throughout the city will exceed 800 this year,” commented Declan O’Dea, VP of International Business at Bigbelly. “We are excited to now extend their reach to Denmark and look forward to seeing similar success for Bigbelly solutions in this important market.”
EWF is committed to delivering economic, social and environmental sustainability to their communities. Recently and notably, EWF worked with the City of Stockholm to deploy Bigbelly in the Burrough of Norrmalm. Norrmalm’s optimized use of the Bigbelly system has reduced transport by over 90%. Annual refuse truck routes decreased from 41,000 kilometers to a mere 3,100 kilometers. Carbon dioxide emissions decreased by approximately 35 tons. With new energy goals in mind, EWF partners with municipalities to provide considerable support to reach these goals – simply by replacing city trash cans.
“EWF has been successfully developing strong customer relationships throughout Sweden, Norway and Finland. The growth of our customer base is a proof point to our in-depth knowledge and understanding of this transformative smart waste solution,” said Per Jarnebrink, EWF CEO. “We look forward to mapping that success to Denmark, supplying our local knowledge and focus, and working together to bring Bigbelly’s proven smart solutions to this important Scandinavian country.”
