Connox is growing: Joy about employees and sales records
News of 2015-10-27, from Anja Beckmann
Connox broke two records in the anniversary year: The home design shop from Hanover expanded the team to 60 employees and reached the 10 million euros turnover limit. Thus, the online mail order business recorded constant growth in the double-digit range since its foundation in 2005. Six more jobs are to be given.
The increasing internationalisation of the interior design shop is rolling: Professionals for translation have been engaged. Numerous new customers, increasing orders and the larger range also demanded strengthening in the areas of accounting, customer service, and editorial. Thus, Connox expanded the team with 21 more employees this year.
More staff, more customers, more sales
CEO Kristian Lenz considers the various employments as an investment into the future – and into further growth: "We can only grow when we have enough personnel capacities." A strategy that pays off: Within the last fiscal year, the company recorded an increase in turnover of more than 25 percent. "A long established and welcome alternative to marathons through the furniture stores is buying furniture online. Also, we extend our assortment in the fields of furniture, home accessories and decoration continuously - we have made positive experiences with it as well", explains Thilo Haas, also managing director of the Connox GmbH, about the positive development.
The company continues searching experts. Connox is looking for reinforcements in online marketing, in the store, and for the customer service. In addition, the company again trains office managers, marketing communication experts and computer scientists with a focus on application development in the upcoming year.
Move planned for 2016
A greater range and more employees require space. Connox expanded the stock with a new high-bay system and a further warehouse this year with 3,300 square meters. The limits of the office will also have been reached in the next year at the latest. The company is currently looking for a new location which meets the increased number of employees and an assortment of more than 13,000 items.
