The story of Florentyna
The history of the company begins with Mariusz and Jarosław Matecki – two brothers fascinated by the prospect of development of production of household appliances.
In late 1980s they found Florentyna, a company originally located in Kalisz. With 4 employees and 1 delivery van they establish cooperation with leading Polish manufacturers, including: Termisil Wołomin Glassworks, Irena Glassworks, Emalia Olkusz, Krosno, Chodzież Porcelain Factory, Ćmielów, Krzysztof, Karolina, Gerlach and many others. Stubbornness and consistency in action result in rapid development of the company.
In 1999 Florentyna moves to Pleszew. On the outskirts of the city, a magnificent company seat and warehouses are built. Further, this time world’s leading manufacturers, are joining the cooperation: Bormioli Rocco, Walther-Glass, RCR Cristaleria Italiana and others.
At the same time, the implementation of original brands begins, which, thanks to the dedicated work of the entire team, are recognized and appreciated not only in the Polish market. These include: Florina, Botti Electronic, Miss Lucy, Emalia, Praktyczna, Magnus.
The dynamic development of the company causes the staff to grow as well. Employment increases to almost 500 people and Florentyna becomes one of the leading employers in the Pleszew district. Currently, already the second generation of employees is associated with the company, the team also includes some married couples.
The so-far activity has resulted in many awards and distinctions. One of the most important achievements was obtaining Quality Management System Certificates: ISO 9001:2000 and 9001:2008. However, the most valuable reward for the three decades of hard work is the trust of Customers and Contractors and the opinion of a solid employer and business partner.
