Showroom network expanding
"Västerås is the next step in Kamux's growth in the Swedish market. With the new showroom, we will strengthen our foothold in Sweden. Västerås will be the twelth Kamux showroom in Sweden," says Robin Toss, Swedish Country Director.
"We are happy to open our Västerås showroom in a prime retail area within good connections. Kamux is specialising in used car sales, and our customer promise is to offer customers attractive pricing and attentive customer service", says Olli Kilpi, Director of International Operations of Kamux.
Västerås is a growing city with about 150,000 inhabitants. The showroom is located in Hälla commercial area on E18, about 5 kilometres from Västerås city center.
"In total, we will have approximately 1,400 square metres of space. The number of cars in the showroom will be about eighty", Toss continues.
Initially, there will be a sales manager and four salespersons serving customers in Västerås.
Growth means good selection of cars to customers
"The expansion also means a larger selection of cars for our customers. According to the Kamux's concept the entire Swedish selection of about 600 cars is within the reach of customers, regardless of where or how they choose to do business. Our selection in Germany is also equally available to our Swedish customers", Kilpi explains.
Kamux hiring new salespersons
"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 and, therefore, previous experience in car sales is not essential," Country Director Toss says.
