Elastic continues European growth with 4 new partnerships: Devold of Norway, Montane, Klättermusen and Original Buff

Like other global markets, Europe is looking toward streamlined digital B2B ecommerce. Elastic continues EU growth with four new partnerships.

Norwegian outdoor and lifestyle apparel manufacturer Devold of Norway, UK-based endurance sports clothing and equipment brand Montane, Swedish mountaineering gear and clothing maker Klättermusen and Spanish sports and lifestyle accessory leader Original Buff have all chosen Emerald’s Elastic Suite B2B ecommerce platform. The addition of these popular brands, representing a diverse set of outdoor and lifestyle product segments, illustrates the strong growth of the Elastic platform with manufacturers across the EU region.

Growth in Europe shows long-term commitment to sustainability

A common theme among these innovative brands is their need to build a more collaborative and streamlined wholesale purchasing process for their retail partners while creating the virtual B2B sales capability needed in the current business environment. The sustainability benefits generated from eliminating printed sales catalogs through Elastic’s industry-leading digital merchandising technology is also a top priority.  Devold of Norway, Montane, and Klättermusen are making an immediate transition to the use of digital sales materials with their rollout of the platform.

“These four companies are among the oldest and most trusted outdoor and lifestyle brands in Europe, making only the highest quality products that are popular with a loyal and growing consumer base. Helping these manufacturers ultimately deliver even more value to their customers while bringing their products to market in a more cost effective and sustainable way helps illustrate what Elastic does best.”

Johan Westerholm, Managing Director Europe, Elastic


The Elastic rollout will cover all of these brands’ product lines and extend to retailers across the globe. Collectively these European manufacturers have a sales presence across the EU and in the global regions of the United States, Canada and Asia.

 “Our growth in Europe demonstrates the universal appeal of the Elastic platform among both manufacturers and retailers worldwide that are seeking a more collaborative, streamlined and sustainable B2B sales process. To serve brands like Devold of Norway, Montane, Klättermusen and Original Buff in bringing this new level of wholesale merchandising to their retail partners is a true privilege for our company and our entire team.”

Josh Reddin, EVP & Founder, Elastic Suite
