The explanation of the Winkelbauer pillars:
We are representing only the best brands out of a category in the Austrian market. The leading role refers to taste, ingredients and recipies (z.B. Deli Dip, Weight Watchers, Kettle Chips, Seeberger, Finn Crisp, u.v.m….). But also to the story and origin (Bauli, Blue Elephant, Fattoria Estense,..) or uncompareable brand strategy (HEINZ, Dilmah, S&B,..)
Of course tradition and a growing base business is very important to us but we are prepared to adopt to lasting trends and innovations in cooperation with the represented brands.
Partnership is the most important factor of Winkelbauer’s success. Together with the suppliers and the national key accounts the mutual satisfaction is key to our growth.
What is appreciated by our partners? That we are the representatives of the brands and never the brands themselves. We are pleased to successfully combine the chances, challenges and opportunities of both the represented brands and the market
„The duties of a distributor are as manifold as the structures and strategies of the brands and products. We are the brands „Ambassadeurs“. The successful realisation of the targets defined by clients, suppliers and us are ongoing challenges – which keeps our position diversified and demanding“ – We do because we love it – thats the power and strength of the company and our team.
