Production and trade
In 2018, we experienced an enormous increase in the prices of cellulose, resulting in an increase of prices of the basic input raw material for production of about 10%. Another adverse impact on production prices was the situation on labour market where we were, as well as majority of manufacturing companies, forced to increase the wage level, in particular in job positions in production.
Due to fulfilled production capacities, company focused on orders with an added value in 2018 that could cover extremely high price of manufacturing costs.
An important part of achieved turnover consists of products and goods of seasonal nature with a topic of specific season drawn there. This marketing strategy and innovation proved to be very successful with a higher added value. Thus, in these days, we’re able to offer products with motives of seasons and holidays, like Christmas and Easter, to our customers.
In 2018, company achieved a business turnover of CZK 650 million.
In 2018, the most important customers on domestic market remained the international business chains and “independent” wholesale chains. From the perspective of export and distribution of our products, the most important countries were the following – Slovakia, Netherlands, Belarus, Germany, Poland, Estonia and Austria.
An important decision with the manufacturing procedure was the shift to processing of jumbo discs with a narrower universal width. Thus, the number of suppliers could be extended and competitive environment for input optimisation could be utilized as well as the entire price decrease for main raw materials.
In 2018, 10.6 thousand tonnes of own products were produced, incl. 8.2 thousand tonnes of toilet papers and 2.4 thousand tonnes of kitchen towels. 12.5 thousand tonnes of “paper” products were sold.
