Customers from commerce, trade and industry benefit every day from the advantages of an internationally active group and the proximity to customers of locally operating regional companies. As a multinational company, Sonepar offers its customers as much regionality as possible and at the same time as much internationality as is advantageous for their business.
Sonepar Austria, headquartered in Vienna, has been active in Austria since 2001 and has 11 branches. In 2018 Sonepar Österreich GmbH took over the traditional Austrian company GFI GmbH. The merger promises employees and customers even more power, even more service, even more expertise. Around 500 employees in Austria contribute to the growing success of the Group. Sonepar Austria has strong market positions in its sales territories and offers a wide range of products, services, consulting and logistics.
As a full-range supplier, Sonepar Austria offers proven electrotechnical quality products from leading national and international suppliers. In its central warehouse in Sattledt, Sonepar holds more than 50,000 products and thus offers its customers a large variety of articles available at short notice.
A wide range of electrotechnical brand products is available for trade, commerce and industry. In addition to classic articles for daily use, trend-setting technologies are already available today.
The core range of electrotechnical products is supplemented by sophisticated special ranges in areas such as consumer appliances, lighting and data network technology, alarm systems and photovoltaics.
The modern, fully-stocked warehouse, newly opened in 2018, forms the basis for punctual supply in line with demand, as reliability and fast, complete delivery form the basis of the business.
The logistics are designed in such a way that items in stock in the warehouse can usually be delivered to any point in Austria within 24 hours. No matter whether it’s being sent to the customer at their business premises or directly to the building site. Of course, customers can also pick up their order at one of the Sonepar branches in Austria.
Sonepar Austria also offers its customers special services, so-called "SoKo's". With "SOKO 6x6", for example, customers can order their desired goods from the online shop until 6p.m. (even on Saturdays), for guaranteed delivery on the next working day.
