The challenges of the DIY market

The trend of doing it yourself has become popular in every section of society, from working in the garden to home renovation projects. Power drills, hammer drills, lawnmowers, and similar products are very much in trend, and the entire sector is benefiting as a result. However, orders fluctuate significantly, with the weather playing a significant role, for example. Suppliers therefore need to be able to respond in a flexible way and use professional approaches to adapt their production capacities at short notice. Because campaign production is very common, managing assemblies is very important in this market; supply chain management is likewise key. Greiner Assistec is able to supply comprehensive solutions from a single source. This is because we handle the procurement of individual parts and their logistics and can also assemble these parts in house.

The market is requiring increased flexibility of its suppliers. This is one of the reasons why the demand for products from experienced European producers is growing. Products are subject to two main criteria: The

service life is typically at least ten years, and functionality comes before design. It’s difficult for innovative concepts to gain a foothold, and new equipment and tools are first tested and modified on a small scale for extended periods before being launched on the market in greater quantities.

Greiner Assistec is a one-stop-shop partner with expert knowledge

Greiner Assistec responds to the requirements of the market with a smart concept: We offer end-to-end solutions from a single source, serving as your one-stop-shop partner with comprehensive technical support. As a solution provider, we often get involved in products at the development stage, which means we can support our customers with our expertise in a rapid and straightforward way. The industry relies on partners who can quickly and efficiently respond to fluctuating capacities. If the construction industry is booming or summer weather is hot, for example, production capacities have to be adapted in a short space of time. Thanks to its international network of production locations and flexible processes, Greiner Assistec is in the perfect position to respond to these situations.

We also stand out as experienced experts: “Quality first” is the market’s motto. Every single component must underscore the products’ focus on quality – the sector isn’t defined by price alone. The technical support that we are able to offer our customers as a supplier therefore plays a decisive role. We also possess expertise in the area of Extrusion blow molding – this technology is only rarely offered on the market but is the best option for producing some parts. In addition, we are experts when it comes to combining various technologies and materials with one another. This results in products that meet our customers’ expectations precisely.

Trends and developments in the DIY segment

Trends and developments in the DIY segment

Innovative approaches take time in the DIY market segment. The market is not driven by technology, and developments are monitored and tested for long periods before being implemented. Product design also tends to play a lesser role in contrast to functionality. Consumers usually base their decision to purchase a specific product on the brand name and the respective features. Performance is what counts.
