Schibsted currently owns online marketplace Mittanbud in Norway and Servicefinder in Sweden, and is now expanding into Denmark through its acquisition of 3byggetilbud.dk.
A perfect match
“3byggetilbud.dk is a really exciting and solid platform. They have a long experience in advertising renovation projects, from consumers to skilled craftsmen, and have a strong position in Denmark. I consider them a perfect partner for Schibsted and I look forward to continuing our journey with their talents in Copenhagen and Århus,” says Håvard Bungum, CEO of Schibsted Norge SMB, which also owns Mittanbud.
Last year, 3byggetilbud.dk advertised over 70,000 projects to Danish artisans. Bungum believes that this figure will increase in the coming years and that the acquisition will also have a positive effect for Mittanbud.
“We will build on our Mittanbud experience to develop 3byggetilbud further, especially on the technology and data usage side, where we have a lot to offer. But I also have high expectations of what we can learn about the operation of 3byggetilbud, and this will help Mittanbud provide an even better service to skilled Norwegian craftsmen and consumers looking to renovate,” says Bungum.
Glad to continue the journey with Schibsted
“Our most important task in Denmark will be to continue the great work done today. We will help skilled craftsmen who are already linked to 3byggetilbud to win more projects and make the product even better and more attractive,” says Bungum .
Martin Borgstrøm, the founder of 3byggetilbud.dk, is delighted to have sold the service he created in 2000 to Schibsted:
“Naturally we are incredibly proud and happy to continue our journey with Schibsted. At 3byggetilbud.dk we have always done things our way. We are one of the first such services in Europe, and I am proud to where we are today,” says Borgstrøm.
In 2021, 3byggetilbud.dk announced more than 70,000 construction projects in Denmark and has 65 employees in offices located in Copenhagen and Århus. 3byggetilbud.dk’s network consists of approximately 1,700 providers who, combined, generate estimated revenues of between DKK 2 and 3 billion through its platform. 3byggetilbud.dk was founded in 2000 by Martin Borgstrøm and had a turnover of around DKK 56 million in 2021.
