Europe’s fastest growing home appliance brand has set its sights on significant growth by expanding into Asian Pacific and North American markets.
"Our aim is to be one of the top three brands in every market we are in."
Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of Arçelik
Already in over 100 countries worldwide, the popular brand intends to expand further. Commenting on Beko’s aims, the CEO of its parent company Arçelik, Hakan Bulgurlu, asserted:
“Our aim is to be one of the top three brands in every market we are in. Beko is our leading global brand and is already performing strongly in Europe. We will maintain this, whilst taking the Beko brand to new markets in America and the Asian-Pacific region.”
Of particular importance are Beko’s plans to grow into the Asian-Pacific region.
“We are determined to create a trade corridor between Turkey and Asia Pacific to build a stable, reliable foundation for our business. We will build a 'Beko Road', just like the historical Silk Road expanded trade from the East to the West, taking market leading positions in countries along the route.”
Going on to discuss Beko’s European success, Mr Bulgurlu said:
“Beko has been Europe’s fastest growing home appliance brand for the last 7 years. We have increased our market share in leading markets like France, Italy, Spain and Poland. We continue to perform strongly in the United Kingdom, the most competitive market in Europe, where we are the best selling brand.”
The Official Partner of The Everyday
Key to Beko’s global success is partnership. Beko uses smart, flexible, efficient technology and products to create solutions to everyday tasks and challenges that improve its customers’ lives. In this way, Beko is more than a home appliance brand. It is a partner with its customers.
Launched this year, the brand’s global campaign –Official partner of the everyday – aims to build stronger emotional connections with customers and cement the concept of partnership.
Mr Bulgurlu affirmed this, saying:
“We want our customers to know us as their ‘official partner of the everyday’. The campaign is based on understanding of real peoples’ lives, needs and everyday frustrations. It captures our commitment to helping our customers – making their everyday lives easier. And, in particular, celebrates the kitchen as the heart of the home for modern families.”
Fundamental to Beko’s partnership with customers is providing solutions to customers’ everyday tasks and challenges. Beko does this with innovative technologies and products.
Explaining the approach, Mr. Bulgurlu hailed Beko’s focus on delivering innovation today:
“Innovation is a crucial part of our success. Every company claims to be innovative. What sets Beko apart is our focus on innovation that can have an impact now. We focus on developing and using technologies that can make a difference, today, to the everyday life of our customers all over the world. Innovation that not only creates ‘world first’ products – like those we are revealing here, at IFA. But innovation that can truly improve the everyday life of our customers today.”
