Simple beginnings, Xtreme Concepts
It wasn’t long until he was contacted by the likes of Eneco, Thomas Cook, Nikon, and Samsung, who weren’t so much interested in his goods but all the more in his concept. “That is how Xtreme Concepts came to be”, explains Serge. “We develop a custom concept for our customers, from project management to custom interior and exterior design; think stickering, lettering, branding, packaging, and printing.”
This was also around the time Expandable came along, according to Serge. “I was attracted to their wider approach, presented in a structure that didn’t look like a truck anymore”, he says. “Their units are lightweight and don’t require a big truck nor a crane. Furthermore, they have a great value-for-money ratio, and they understand the bigger picture I had in mind.”
Partnership over animosity
After their first acquaintance, a few meetings back and forth were all it took to seal the collaboration. “I’ve had the pleasure to deal with amiable, cooperative folks at Expandable, such as Berrie and Kathleen”, continues Serge. “They are open, honest people that can see what you want to achieve. Their suggestions are based on what your idea really needs.”
Serge believes that partnerships are more valuable than animosity. “You can achieve so much more when you work together with competitors”, he says. “This business is all about trust. We know we can trust Expandable and vice versa. Expandable has always been important to us. They’re a core part of our Essentials line-up, and they will always play an important role for Xtreme Concepts.”
