FEGA & Schmitt serves the electrical craft businesses, electrical trade, industry, and facility sectors. The success story began in 1943 when the “Schmitt electrical wholesa- ler” was founded, followed by the foundati- on of “FEGA electrical wholesaler” in 1978. In 1996 both companies were acquired by the “Würth Group” and merged in 2009 into the “FEGA & Schmitt Elektrogroßhandel GmbH”. The extensive range includes over 650.000 items and 36 different categories from the field of electrical engineering.
The concept of the marketplace
First business contact between openpack and FEGA & Schmitt, with the final result of adding FEGA & Schmitt as a valuable vendor to the openpack marketplace, was establis- hed by our common customer Klingele Paper & Packaging Group. This partnership resulted on the following fact: “openpack marketplace” is on its way to become the industry’s central procurement platform. Throughout the marketplace, users can
find all items from spare parts to office supplies that otherwise needed to be ordered in a variety of online shops or telephonically. The concept follows the principle of “one-stop-shop”, which means that customers can quickly complete their purchases via a platform and a single, shared shopping cart. In the near future, the EDI integration in the marketplace will ensure further optimization of the purcha- sing processes for all customers and ven- dors. It all results in a clear advantage of a one-stop platform – being able to commu- nicate with all partners involved trough one source!
