Almost a year ago, Castellum started an innovation lab with the ambition of blazing a trail for digitalization of the real estate sector. Our Beambox storage solution – until recently a pilot project – has now been incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary of Castellum. In connection with the spin-off and launch, Beambox is employing three people.
Beambox is a totally new storage solution, featuring on-demand service, that helps people to solve storage of their household belongings reasonably and conveniently, without requiring car or truck transport to distant storage units. Beambox arranges door-to-door pick-up and drop off, takes photos, stores, and redelivers consumer goods when needed. The service can be accessed via an app, and the concept results from activities carried out in Castellum’s Next20 innovation lab, a test-arena for digital transformation and innovation. During the first months of this year, the focus has been on turning Beambox into a well-functioning operation, as a wholly-owned subsidiary to Castellum.
“Beambox will further strengthen our position as an innovative and sustainable real estate company. With Beambox, we can offer sustainable and competitive storage solutions with customer convenience at the top of the list. We’ve also found a good use for over-capacity from temporary vacancies in storage and transport resources. It’s win-win for everyone, including the environment”, says Henrik Saxborn, Castellum CEO.
Connected with the incorporation, Beambox has employed three people:
- Eva Sjökvist, Managing Director, comes most recently from Great Works, where she has been responsible for developing the Beambox concept. Eva has a substantial background in digital products.
- Ted Rosén, who will be responsible for sales and marketing, has previous experience from the world of finance, fast-moving consumable products and digital product sales. Ted arrives most recently from the Wrapp digital start-up company.
- Lars Runius, in charge of operations, has spent a number of years working with operations and logistics and comes to us most recently from the ICA grocery chain, where he was responsible for efficiency and process development.
In conjunction with the launch, Beambox will be offered to customers in Stockholm.
