Kamux Oyj: Kamux accelerates its expansion in Sweden: showroom no. 16 to be opened in Karlskrona
Kamux Corporation Press Release 27 November 2018 at 11.30
Kamux, a company specialising in used car sales, is further expanding its operations in Sweden by opening yet another new showroom in Karlskrona during the first quarter of 2019.
Expanding at a fast pace
“I am excited and proud to announce yet another showroom launch in Sweden. At the moment there are 12 showrooms but shortly we’ll have an extensive chain of 16 showrooms in Sweden. The Varberg showroom will open at the beginning of December, and the Norrtälje and Karlskrona showrooms during the first quarter of 2019. Due to permit processes, the Gothenburg one will open in March-April 2019, slightly later than we’d hoped for. Obviously opening many showrooms in a row is a tough job but Kamux’s amazing staff is up for it,” says Robin Toss, Swedish Country Director.
“The Karlskrona showroom will be located in a vibrant car dealership area and is situated in a prime location with easy access for our customers around the area,” continues Robin Toss.
Showroom network tightening
Kamux’s Karskrona showroom will be only 100 kilometres away from Kamux’s Växjö showroom, thus tightening Kamux’s network. The number of cars in the showroom will be about 110, but the entire selection of cars and a home delivery option are available to Kamux’s customers.
Growing fast internationally
“The combination of physical showrooms and digital presence lies at the core of our business model. The digital platform creates transparency and the chance to compare alternatives and prices. In the showrooms, customers are able to get help from our professionals and face-to-face service which is highly appreciated. We are pleased with the customer response to Kamux’s concept and because of that, we are growing fast internationally and expanding our network even further,” says Olli Kilpi, Director of International Business, Kamux.
Hiring new staff
“Kamux has a unique training programme where new employees will have the opportunity to learn the profession and customer service skills. Hiring locally is important to us. We want to support communities by employing from within them. We’ll start recruiting the Karlskrona sales team soon. The right attitude is key, so previous experience in car sales is not essential,” says Robin Toss.
