Textile production and sales are globally oriented, whichmeans that transportation routes are long. We managed totransport 13,000 m3 of goods on over 300 ship containers,which is 8 million pieces of mainly textile goods.By combining all logistical processes, we achieved a betterfunctioning of logistics and a more thorough overview of thelogistical movement of goods. The logistical process beginsby creating the size of individual transportation packageswith the objective of using the space of the transportationmeans and packing suitable quantities for individual stores.The implementation of the modern handling of goods, whichis carried out on 5,400 m2 of storage surface, enables us todeliver products to all sales outlets in a timely manner.The modern and carefully planned logistical process enablesus to send out over 235 tons of goods every month.
Waste management control was centralized in our logisticsdepartment. Because we are an environmentally-friendlycompany, we carry out waste management control inaccordance with valid legislation in our central warehouse aswell as in our stores where we organized waste separation.Our company therefore separates:
paper, as well as paper and cardboard packaging,
empty cartridges – toners.
By separating our waste, we are rationally reducing municipalwaste and contributing to the ecological awareness ofindividuals and society.In the field of energy, we are taking measures to improveenergy efficiency. This way, we managed to reduce theconsumption of energy needed for the lighting and coolingof sales surfaces. We check the supply power of electricityin all power consumption locations. We installed trial LEDlighting. This lighting will reduce the release of heat intothe environment, and additionally save electrical power.The new LED technology will also be used in exterior lightingelements, which will be an additional influence on the reductionof ecological damage.
As a way of saving in stores, we offer our customers shoppingbags which include recycled foil.Hangers are a necessity in every store in order to present theclothes. We collect damaged hangers and send them to themanufacturer who once again uses them in production.

Each work unit has a sufficient number of employees who are trained to offer first aid.
Informal socializing We try to connect our employees with the company as much as possible, even by means of informal socializing. For this purpose, we organize various social gatherings, picnics, day trips, and business conferences, where we get to know each other better by socializing, exchange experiences, opinions, and we create a nice atmosphere.
