Kaemingk International Growing at AmericasMart
The new Kaemingk USA showroom, double the size of its previous space, is among many additions expanding AmericasMart’s rug, gift and apparel franchise, cementing its role as the world’s global marketplace with more than 50 years of planned tradeshow development.
Beginning with The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market in January 2013, Kaemingk USA will be located in Building 1 on Floor 18, showrooms-B-5 B-7.
“We are excited to welcome Europe’s largest holiday, garden and home décor company to an anchor space on our 18th floor,” says Andrew Patton, vice president of leasing-Holiday, Floral and Home Décor. “It’s another endorsement of AmericasMart’s position as the go-to marketplace for the industry.”
More than half of Kaemingk’s complete line of trend-forward, value-priced products will be available, and the company will offer a significantly lower minimum purchase order requirement for business written in the new showroom. Previously, Kaemingk’s American customers were required to travel to Holland to purchase in full container load quantities. Kaemingk’s full product range includes more than 15,000 items.
“Kaemingk takes great pride in offering U.S. buyers our beautiful holiday and seasonal décor line at very competitive prices,” says Tom Durkin, managing director of Kaemingk USA. “As Europe’s leading supplier of holiday and garden décor, we look forward to offering our collections to a much broader segment of independent American retailers.”
“Kaemingk’s primary customer base and target market in Europe has always been the independent garden center and specialty retailer,” adds Durkin. “Kaemingk USA will now serve independent garden centers and specialty retailers across this country as well.”
Kaemingk has a long history as the industry leader in style and color, fashion, breadth of product selection and customer service in Europe, and now in the U.S. The company’s customers have historically enjoyed an average purchase order fill ratio of 98 percent each holiday season, which allows customers to confidently make their purchasing decisions knowing their order requirements will be met.
With a 70-year history in the business, Netherlands-based Kaemingk has long been Europe’s premier manufacturer for Christmas, garden, home accessory and LED lighting products. Based in the picturesque town of Aalten in the Netherlands, Kaemingk distributes its beautifully designed, sharply priced collection in over 30 countries including the United States. Featuring trend-right, hand-crafted products, Kaemingk’s exclusive product lines are created by a team of 24 product developers and buyers who travel the world in search of new ideas, new material combinations, style trends and innovative techniques that can be applied to its top selling traditional product categories.
