Schibsted acquires Denmark’s largest online marketplace for skilled trades

Since its launch in 2000, 3byggetilbud.dk has advertised hundreds of thousands of building projects to a nationwide network of skilled tradespeople.

Schibsted currently owns the Mittanbud online marketplace in Norway and Servicefinder in Sweden, and is now expanding to Denmark through its acquisition of 3byggetilbud.dk.

A perfect match

“3byggetilbud.dk is a truly exciting and solid platform. They have long experience in advertising renovation projects from consumers to skilled tradespeople and have a strong position in Denmark. I see them as a perfect match for Schibsted, and look forward to continuing our journey together with their talented people in Copenhagen and Århus,” says Håvard Bungum, CEO of Schibsted Norge SMB, which also owns Mittanbud.

Last year 3byggetilbud.dk advertised over 70,000 projects to Danish skilled tradespeople. Bungum believes this figure will increase in the coming years, and that the acquisition will also have a positive effect for Mittanbud.

“We will draw on our experience from Mittanbud to further develop 3byggetilbud, especially on the tech side and data use, where we have a lot to offer. But I also have high expectations of how much we can learn about how 3byggetilbud works, and that this will help Mittanbud provide an even better service to Norwegian skilled tradespeople and consumers looking to renovate,” says Bungum.

Happy to continue the journey with Schibsted

“Our most important task in Denmark will be to continue the great work being done today. We will help skilled tradespeople who are already linked up with 3byggetilbud win more projects, and make the product even better and more attractive,” says Bungum.

Martin Borgstrøm, the founder of 3byggetilbud.dk, is delighted about having sold the service he established in 2000 to Schibsted:

“Naturally we’re incredibly proud and happy to be continuing our journey together with Schibsted. At 3byggetilbud.dk we’ve always done things our own way. We’re one of the first services of our kind in Europe, and I’m proud of where we are today,” says Borgstrøm.
