For us as a market leader it's a basic strategic decision to focus on BIM to meet the demands from our customers, architects, designers and engineers. BIM will be mandatory for tomorrow's business and for us it hasn't been a question about if, is just a question about when!

We are a global company and we have searched for a one stop shop distributor who also could solve the very important task to secure the user of our BIM objects, assuring they always have the right and latest version. We are now ready to take the next step in our BIM strategy and we will do it together with BIMobject", says Carl-Henrik Nyström, Marketing Manager Scandinavia at JELD-WEN.
