Our product range is geared towards serving professionals in construction and industry, as well as in new development, renovation and repair projects. For us, a broad product range spells availability; all products required in construction are available on the shelves of the store or in its customer pick-up yard.
As we want to offer our customers environmentally friendly products and services, we pay special attention to the origin and quality of our solutions. In all our operations, we commit ourselves to responsible practices. STARKGroup recognizes the following key themes in its corporate responsibility strategy: health and safety, environment, people, responsible business and communality. These themes support STARK’s business strategy. In procurement policies, we favor suppliers that offer certified products and services with known environmental impacts.

In the next few years, our objective is to become stronger than our competitors, and also the most sought-after partner for professionals in the construction business.Year 2018 we celebrated our 150th anniversary - "Strong since 1868"
