We have a big History
Origins of K+B Brand
Our brand originates from 1960 when in the city of Cham-Germany Josef Kappenberger and Michael Braun started a company under name K+B. In years to come through dedicated work and persistence company will profile itself in two strategic areas: consumer electronics and electrical installation, communication technology and manufacture of electrical distribution cabinets.
Somewhere in the same time as our founders were creating future with K+B company in Germany, another visionary idea in the period 1967-1971 created Expert International in Switzerland with the intention to become a largest retail association in consumer electronics sales.
By merging this two ideas, Expert International will become the largest world network of specialized electronics stores that counts more than 4.000 stores in 21 countries with total retail sales of more than 13 billion Euro.
In the year 1991 company K+B Expert will establish first stores of next successful retail sales network in the Czech Republic.
As the first chain of electronics stores in the Czech Republic, Expert Elektro pioneered and introduced a customer loyalty system called the Expert Club.During following years through dedicated work and persistence, we will become one of the largest retailers in the Czech Republic, having stores in size range of more than 2000 m2.In 2012 our web shop www.expert.cz will start its journey to become a leader on the market in e-commerce of Czech Republic.
Twenty-five years later, we still embrace the same values and goals of our founders and founders of Expert International, and we believe that this has contributed to sustained growth in our overall business, the customer base and the product lines we offer.
Combining the strength, creativity, and imagination of K+B Expert with that of Expert International we are a true leader in retail of the Czech Republic.
