The larger of Momox’s two storage and distribution centres occupies a 40,000-square-metre site opposite Leipzig’s new exhibition complex. All the items bought by the company are delivered here, examined and then stored away in the long rows of shelves. Books, CDs and computer games are also despatched to customers from here. The original Momox warehouse in Neuenhagen, Brandenburg, was only half as big, and in December 2011 finally became too small for Christian Wegner’s company, which he established in Berlin in 2006 with only EUR 1,500 of start-up capital. Originally operating as a one-man enterprise for buying and selling second-hand CDs over the Internet, the business has now grown into a company employing 750 people, many of whom work at the Leipzig site. “Unlike our competitors, Momox doesn’t rely on temporary staff,” says Heiner Kroke, who took over from Christian Wegner as CEO of the company in March 2013.
