Hitting the

Working with the Best Hardware store in the Netherlands

‘Yippiejajajippiejippiejee’ is familiar to most of us, but HORNBACH’s slogan ‘There is always something to do’ is also regularly used by Van Hulzen. From PR to marketing communication, corporate communication and internal communication. We are very proud to be able to work company-wide for the Best Hardware Store in the Netherlands!

PR: HORNBACH in the media

Since HORNBACH’s arrival in the Netherlands, the hardware store chain has grown into a leading player in the industry. From the beginning of our successful partnership in 2005, we strengthen the presence of the full service hardware store in the media. Translating facts into relevant news for journalists, the opening of new hardware stores and PR research: there’s nothing that will stop us. Visit pers.hornbach.nl for a complete list of our PR work for HORNBACH.

Internal communication: HORNBACH Heroes

HORNBACH is growing fast, as is the number of colleagues. How do you keep these HORNBACH Heroes up-to-date, engaged and enthused? By developing a staff magazine: ‘De Hamer’, for example. A magazine where employees from Groningen to Geleen can recognize themselves, including exciting reports and dynamic photography. We have editorial responsibility and determine the themes and topics in consultation with HORNBACH. Subsequently, we develop text, image and design.


Building society together. The motto of the HORNBACHhelpt Foundation. With HORNBACHhelpt, the hardware store is committed to boosting social initiatives with construction- or garden-related help. From refurbishing a petting zoo to transforming the living room at a care facility for young people with disabilities. We are involved with HORNBACHhelpt since its foundation. We take care of the communication and are happy to lend a hand in these projects ourselves!
