Kamux expands in Kuopio: utility vehicle point to open in the autumn
Kamux’s operations in Kuopio will expand when the utility vehicle point opens at the Kuopio car showroom. The expansion of approximately 1,000 m2 will be ready for use by early October.
Vehicles for various transport needs
“The expansion of operations is a result of feedback from customers and the demand for utility vehicles. The showroom expansion makes it possible to offer a range of vehicles of different sizes for various transport needs, regardless of whether passenger or goods transport”, says Kamux’s Country Director Jussi Mäkinen.
Firm foothold in Kuopio
The utility vehicle point will further strengthen Kamux’s foothold in the sale of used cars in the Finnish market and further improve its ability to serve its customers in the Kuopio region.
“At the Kuopio utility vehicle point, we can serve customers over a large area in Eastern Finland and Savo, in particular. In accordance with the Kamux concept, we flexibly and swiftly move cars to the showroom closest to, or preferred by, the customer”, Mäkinen says.
Kamux already has two utility vehicle points in Vantaa and Lahti.
The expansion also creates a need for more personnel. Kamux is recruiting new employees in Kuopio. In 2016, Kamux employed 343 car retail professionals on average.
“Growth requires more staff, which is why we are constantly hiring new employees”, Mäkinen says.
