Kamux announces opening of showroom no. 14 in Varberg in Sweden
Kamux, a company specialising in used car sales, is continuing its strong growth. Kamux is further expanding its operations in Sweden by opening a new showroom in Varberg in December 2018.
"The showroom will be located in a vibrant car dealership area, so this was an excellent opportunity to further expand Kamux's showroom network in Sweden. Varberg is only 80 kilometres from Gothenburg, and together these two showrooms will significantly strengthen our foothold on the west coast of Sweden," says Robin Toss, Swedish Country Director.
Meeting customer needs
"I am delighted that we are growing strongly in Sweden. The growth means that Kamux's concept meets the needs and expectations of Swedish customers. Good service, affordably priced cars and trustworthiness are key elements of the Kamux concept," says Olli Kilpi, Director of International Business, Kamux.
Larger showroom network, more selection
"The larger our showroom network, the better we can serve customers. The expansion also means a wider selection of cars for our customers. Initially, there will be a sales manager and two salespersons serving Kamux customers in Varberg. The number of cars in the showroom will be about 70, but of course the entire selection of cars and a home delivery option are available to all our customers," Robin Toss continues.
Varberg is situated roughly halfway between Gothenburg and Halmstad. There are approximately 35,000 inhabitants in Varberg, and a total of about 63,000 in the Varberg region.
Kamux hiring new salespersons
"We shall start recruiting the Varberg sales team soon. As a growing company, we are continuously hiring new staff, particularly new salespersons. We strive to be a car dealership where our customers find it easy and comfortable to shop, and this is why we invest a lot in training our sales staff. The right attitude is key, so previous experience in car sales is not essential," says Robin Toss.
