As you may have seen, Komplett has today sold our BV unit which includes Komplett.ie, Komplett.nl and Komplett.be to ParaDigit BV.
Firstly, I’d like to say that from a personal perspective as country manager for Ireland I think this is a positive move, and I think it will bring real benefits both to our business and to our customers in the very near future. On April 1st the deal will be formally concluded and we will transfer into the ParaDigit group, so for the moment there’ll be no immediate changes or effects noticeable from a customer perspective.
From the first of April, we will be moving forward with what I expect to be an extremely interesting and exciting plan to expand the business. Our plan, long term, in Ireland, is to be remain the market leader in e-commerce in what is a relatively small but fast-growing market for internet shopping.
In September of 2008 we opened a local office here and since then have been growing both our team and our presence here, including our Dublin Pickup Point which has been growing from strength to strength in this time.
I fully expect the future to be a bright one for Komplett.ie and it’s one that we internally are very excited about. We hope that you will see, in the coming months, the benefits of this deal as a customer.
