Can you say something about the 123BigBags team?
“We are a very international team. Our largest sales markets are France, Germany and England. We focus on all Western European countries. Now there is a French, Italian, German, South African, Swiss and Vietnamese working in the office. That is why the official language in our office is English.”
You have recently moved to a new office in the City House. Why did you choose this location?
“First, we simply needed more space. We rent it for the long term and it is really rented for growth. Now we are a team of twelve, but I expect this to expand quickly. Of course you don't want to be hindered by the building you're in."
“It is also a beautiful building. We sell bags, but because of our webshop we are actually an IT company. That is why we need highly trained staff. We don't sell such a sexy product as what Oger sells," Krijn refers to his neighbours downstairs, "but by housing in such a beautiful, centrally located building, we naturally attract better staff."
“Because we are in such a beautiful location, a stone's throw from Rotterdam Central, our staff comes from all corners of the country. As a result, we do not have to offer them a petrol-guzzling car. That way we are a bit more sustainable.”
