On 23 and 24 October 2017 representatives of Fibar Group S.A. received the Polish Smart Development Award for the construction of a factory in Poznan and the title of Innovation Leader. The first award was presented during the 2nd Smart Development Forum in Rzeszów, while the second one was the result of winning a competition organized by Europe&Emirates Economic Forum.
Polish Smart Development Award was presented for the second time. Its aim is to award the most dynamic companies that implement innovative solutions in the country. Among the winners there was also FIBARO, which was noticed by the chapter house in connection with the construction of the production plant in Poznan and for the cutting edge technologies used in it.
This is a very important distinction for us, which confirms that the construction of a production plant in Poland was a good decision. We know how few Polish companies decide to take such a step, undergoing the illusory perspective of savings associated with the relocation of production outside Poland.
– said Krzysztof Banasiak, Vice-President of Fibar Group S.A. when receiving the award.
FIBARO plant currently employs more than 150 people. All products that are part of the FIBARO brand portfolio are created on the factory premises (1800 m2). In 2016, over 665 thousand devices were manufactured there, which were sold on 110 different markets, including the domestic market.
Recently, FIBARO has also taken first place in the category of Innovative Institution in the “Innovation Leaders – Awards” Competition organized during the 2nd edition of the Europe&Emirates Economic Forum. The idea of the Forum is to bring closer the broad economic and business cooperation as well as to present the cultural values of both European and Emirate circles.
We are glad that FIBARO’s innovative solutions are used all over the world including such a dynamic and modern country as the United Arab Emirates. FIBARO does not follow global trends… it is ahead of them.
– said Dominik Malgowski, Head of Sales at Middle East & Africa, during his speech.
Both awards testify to FIBARO’s high commitment to development at the local level, through its investment in the Poznan factory and through effective operations on the international, modern market in the area of product sales and promotion.
