A focus on the customer
In 2008, when Vitalij Kungel had to replace a bulb in the headlight of his Citroen Xsara, the garage charged him €60, even though the bulb itself cost less than €5. Vitalij had a literal lightbulb moment and a business idea was born. Together with his friends Alexej Erdle and Max Wegner, Vitalij launched an online shop for car parts (pkwteile.de). The first product sold was of course a bulb, costing just one euro.
