Kamux to expand in Sweden: 11. showroom in Linköping

Kamux, a company specialising in used car sales, continues its strong growth. Kamux is now expanding its operations in Sweden by opening a new showroom in Linköping in June 2018.

Showroom network expanding

"With the showroom in Linköping, we will strengthen our foothold in Sweden. At present Kamux has ten showrooms in Sweden. Linköping will be the eleventh Kamux showroom in Sweden," says Robin Toss, Swedish Country Director.

Linköping is a university and technology city with about 150,000 inhabitants. Linköping is located in Östergötland County, about 170 kilometres southwest from Stockholm.

Growth means good selection of cars to customers

"The showroom in Linköping is the next step in Kamux's growth in the Swedish market. 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", says Olli Kilpi, Director of International Operations of Kamux.

Suitable location found in a known retail area

"We found a suitable location for a car showroom at Grytstorpsgatan 8. Initially, there will be a sales manager and four salespersons serving Kamux customers in Linköping. In total, we will have approximately 1,700 square metres of space. The number of cars in the showroom will be about hundred", Kilpi continues.

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.
