There is a good tradition at the end of each year to think about the main events and achievements of the passing year, to sum up the results and make plans for the coming year. And we are happy to tell you that the year 2017 was a truly iconic for Komandor, and it was rich for really good events. In this year our company celebrated the 25th anniversary of its activity. From the distant 1992 to the present day, the company had passed a long way, full of falls and victories, difficulties and achievements: the first uncertain steps in the furniture market, the search for partners and the ideal business model, the development and testing of products, research of the tastes and needs of consumers, expansion of the network, release of our production on new markets. For 25 years we have been doing our best to make the Komandor brand synonymous with quality and reliability. So, looking back, we can confidently state we are still ready to meet new challenges, work on our development and to continuously improve.
Also, 2017 was very productive in terms of developing new products and expanding the assortment. During this time, a lot of new products appeared on the market: the Sleek wardrobe system, the Orto wardrobe system, the Mocca accessory series and organizers for easy storage. Traditional and well-known to our clients Komandor systems have been also updated and complemented. Due to all the innovations, there were even more opportunities for creating functional and contemporary furniture that in the best way answers the needs of our customers.
2017 proved to be important for the company in terms of enhancing the presence and expansion of brand geography. During the year Komandor has become a participant in several large-scale international furniture exhibitions: Interzum 2017 - May 16-19 in Cologne, BB Construmat 2017 - May 23-26 in Barcelona, Bahrain Franchise & Dine Expo - November 8-9 in Manama, Furniture 2017 - November 20-24 in Moscow. Participating in such events is a great opportunity to meet and share experiences with our partners, to find new candidates for cooperation, to get in touch with clients, get acquainted with the industry's top design trends and gain inspiration for new achievements.
In addition to all mentioned above, 2017 was also full of pleasant events. The company has twice received awards as a result of recognition by consumers of brand products. Thanks to its innovations and high level of service, KOMANDOR has been awarded the “Quality Leader 2017” and “Furniture Diamond 2018” certificates. It is very pleasant to realize that the products of the company are popular among the clients from all over the world. It motivates us to move forward and improve every time.
We thank our clients for their trust and our employees and partners for their fruitful cooperation. Next year we wish you health, joy, peace, family comfort, well-being, success and prosperity. Let 2018 be full of good news and enjoyable events, and will be the start for new projects and ideas!
Thank you for being with us! With gratitude and best wishes, the team of KOMANDOR company.
