With the rapid growth of the company and the upgrading of annual agreements with regular customers, the need for additional storage space for finished products arose. As a result, in 2023 we successfully completed a project to add an additional 580 m2 of warehouse space. The new warehouse is located on the same site, adjacent to the western façade of the existing building. This now gives us a total of almost 4200 m2 of covered usable area.
We are proud that such a difficult step as construction and relocation has succeeded in such a short period of time, and that we have maintained regular production and supply to all our partners. In 2019, we successfully started production at a new location, upgraded it with some new machines, and also gained new business customers. The number of employees exceeded 30.
We have obtained the ISO 9001 quality certificate, increased investments in personnel training and development of computer-controlled production. In 2015, we expanded our premises with new technology offices, and a year later we completely renovated our facility, thermally insulated it and brightened the facade with yellow colour. We were slowly running out of space in the building, and on several occasions there was a traffic jam when the trucks were loading the products. It was becoming increasingly clear that in the long run, this location would no longer tolerate the company's growth.
Due to the financial crisis that affected the whole Europe, the B2B orders took a hit and we needed to react. The turnover fell and we reduced the number of employees. We intensively searched for new sectors and customers. We extended our sales network, placing our products in several furniture chains in Slovenia.
In 2004 we began cooperation with a Swiss company as a supplier of handles for mowers, and soon our cooperation extended to other components. The number of employees rose to 18, with temporary staff up to 30.
The serial production continued successfully and we had to enlarge our production space.
We began developing our brand of metal furniture - Metal design furniture. The demand on the market grew and today we are selling our furniture directly to end customers. We are expanding our product range and our market to the neighboring countries.
In 1990 the company started as a furnisher of metal equipment for bars, restaurants, casinos and schools on the Slovenian market. We were also a supplier of custom made equipment and furniture.
