Our highest competitive advantage lies in the products of the highest quality, and in the knowledge, creativity and ambitions of our employees.
Closeness of the employees with the factory, mutual understanding and cooperation, and trust are the key values, which have helped us in realising developmental goals and strategies on our way. Significant cornerstones of our successfulness, which help us in achieving our visions and goals, are coordinated and efficient achievements, creating synergies and cooperation with external partners, and the culture of the achievement. Beside the fact that clients, suppliers and other business partners trust us, we still have many a thing, which places us among the best ones – boldness and commitment of our employees.
Foundations are seen in technically perfective production processes, which are upgraded by strategic trends, that follow energetically efficient and environment-friendly production.
