Hudson’s Bay opened up its first store as far back as 1881. When the oldest trading business in Canada came across the pond in 2017, it was looking for a reliable partner for a tenfold rollout. HBC is now opening up its first ever European department stores in Amsterdam and nine other cities in the Netherlands after an installation time of only six weeks! Vizona rose to the occasion and produced andinstalled the fittings for one quarter of the space in total, using its skills to standardise the CallisonRTKL design across all the locations.This included the main partitions for the menswear sections consisting of enormous steel frames with mesh panels, giving the floor an industrial look. Thanks to accurately timed logistics, it was possible to deliver large quantities of materials successfully to the most challenging locations in pedestrian precincts and narrow alleys. This is a good start to successful transatlantic relations. Very promising!
