About a year ago, we made some big decisions about the business which set us off out into the big wide world looking to find the best products for our sector and to find the suppliers to supply those qquality products.
Suppliers who could offer the best products and the best commercial fit with our business and who would partner with us and be prepared to encourage and to share in the successes and sometimes, provide support when there are setbacks too. Such is the way of the business world.
We are sitting here today reflecting on what we can now look back on as a very busy year.
We believe that we have found such a combination now, with a huge range of superb quality products from Autentico, Cervus, WooduBend and Artisan Enhancements. All of these suppliers are very active in supporting the efforts of their business partners and this has been so very evident in the past few months as we have all had to learn to deal with unprecedented circumstances during this global pandemic.
Depite the difficulties, the business continues to grow as we find ourselves exporting products to a number of European countries now.
In the social media world, we have finally managed to get the website up and running fully, with easy online ordering; we have expanded our social media offering, with regular posts on Instagram and Facebook as well. We have both even appeared in front of the camera on occasions to offer some insight into the products that we use and sell. That is the key, we believe, we use the products on a daily basis, for a variety of projects, from customer commissions through to our own home renovation. We also do crazy things, such as put the products to the test by painting external walls with interiror paint to see how it reacts, by leaving items out in the extreme weather that we get here in Bulgaria to test the performance, even some of our paint brushes have been frozen a few times. If it says Indoors only, you can pretty much guarantee that we will put it outside to see how it performs.
By doing crazy stuff like that, we can then offer what we believe is the best advice that is specific to the climate, the methods and materials used in construction here and to our Clients needs.
Of course, none of this would be possible without you, our valued Clients. We are gratteful exery day for the support that you give to us, for the feedback on the products and for the general good humour that we always seem to find you in.
All that is left to say is, keep well and keep safe and keep on painting!
