Kamux continues to expand: 40th car showroom in Finland to be opened in August in Espoo


Kamux, a company specialising in used car sales, continues its strong growth. The company is expanding its operations in the Helsinki Metropolitan area by opening a new car showroom in Olarinluoma, Espoo in August.

Firm foothold on the Helsinki Metropolitan area

"With our new showroom, we are gaining an even firmer foothold on the used cars market in Finland. We already have one showroom in Espoo, and at the moment, we have a total of six showrooms in the metropolitan area. Naturally, we are interested in strengthening our position in this area even further. We are opening a new car showroom in Olarinluoma, Espoo in August," says Jussi Mäkinen, Finnish Country Director.

The location of the new showroom was chosen because of its excellent location in a well-known car retail area, where customers are used to shop for cars. The population of the area is also on the rise, the area is already within good connections, and in the future it can be reached by the West Metro.

Kamux is continuously hiring new sales staff

"As a growing company, we are continuously hiring new staff, particularly new salespersons. We strive to be a car retail chain, 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 and, therefore, previous experience in car sales is not inevitable," Mäkinen says.

The entire, extensive selection of cars within the reach of customers

The new Espoo showroom will serve all customers of the Helsinki Metropolitan area and is an excellent addition to the showroom network of an area with a strong population concentration.

"True to the Kamux operation model, the entire selection of 3,000 cars available in Finland, and the cars we have in Sweden and Germany, are within the reach of our customers, regardless of which showroom they choose to do business in or through which channel they wish to contact us," says Mäkinen.
