HELSINKI, Dec. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Kamux will relocate the business activity of its showroom in Varkaus to other Kamux showrooms in the region, and the Varkaus showroom will be closed down.
“The decision is linked to Kamux’s strategy. As we have announced earlier, in the future Kamux will focus on larger showrooms, which will support, among other things, our purchasing activities and processes related to the inspection and processing of cars. In our strategy period 2021-2023, Kamux is aiming to accelerate growth so, in principle, closing or reducing existing stores is not part of our plans, but the Varkaus showroom is very small with only a 70-car inventory and Kamux has a very strong and extensive showroom network in the region. We are able to serve our customers well through our network of stores in Kuopio, Mikkeli, Iisalmi, Joensuu and Jyväskylä, and this is of course supported by our home delivery concept,” says CEO Juha Kalliokoski.
In Kuopio and Jyväskylä, alongside passenger cars Kamux has a comprehensive selection of commercial vehicles, and in both cities the showroom capacity has recently been expanded with additional space, so the total number of cars on sale will not be affected.
“Kamux is not looking to reduce staff. We are offering our Varkaus salespeople a job in the nearby dealership of their choice. As a growth company, we’re pleased to be able to offer our employees interesting job and career opportunities within the company,” says Kalliokoski.
The Varkaus showroom business will be transferred to other dealerships around the beginning of 2022.
