Kamera Express and Foto Konijnenberg/Photospecialist combine their activities and join forces. Kamera Express has taken over Foto Konijnenberg/Photospecialist. Together they now have 21 physical stores, of which 17 in the Netherlands, 3 in Belgium and 1 in Germany. Moreover, Foto Konijnenberg - under the name Photospecialist - is active online, in 10 European countries. Kamera Express can continue to grow as a result of this acquisition. Previously, Kamera Express took over photo store Foka.
Ben Cornelisse, CEO of Kamera Express, says: “Growth is inextricably linked to Kamera Express. Over the past 5 years, the number of physical stores has grown and our webshops have also continued to grow. Our customers appreciate our efforts enormously. Our webshop has recently been voted the best electronics webshop in the Netherlands for the second time in a row. This appreciation from our customers also translates into the rapid growth of our turnover. In 2018 we also took further steps with our international expansion by opening a second store in Belgium. Together with the 3 shops and 10 webshops of Foto Konijnenberg / Photospecialist, this forms a solid basis for further expansion.”
Harold Konijnenberg, director of Foto Konijnenberg / Photospecialist, joins the board of Kamera Express. “Foto Konijnenberg offers expert advice, excellent service and a very extensive range. The employees of Foto Konijnenberg all have a passion for photo and videography. This is a perfect match with the core values of Kamera Express, this makes joining Kamera Express a logical next step for us”, Harold Konijnenberg explains.
