A new journey starts, Tradeplace turns into a scale-up
Tradeplace was founded in September 2001. That year 3 visionary CEO´s from Electrolux, Whirlpool and BSH established the Joint Venture Tradeplace B.V. in The Netherlands. One year later two more companies joined in: Philips and Merloni Elettrodomestici.
The founding CEO´s of Tradeplace:
Kurt-Ludwig Gutberlet (CEO BSH 2001)
Wolfgang König (CEO Electrolux 2001)
Jeff Fettig (CEO Whirlpool 2001)
Andrea Guerra (CEO Merloni Elettrodomestici 2001)
Rudy Provoost (CEO Philips CE 2001)
The first service that Tradeplace offered was the portal, giving Trade-partners access to the B2B online shops of the manufacturers. A revolutionary single sign-on solution which was pushing the digital transformation already in 2001. More co-creation efforts followed, resulting in innovative solutions being offered to the market over the last 2 decades. The take-up of the Tradeplace services is still growing year by year.
