Polish manufacturer HAMAR is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the introduction of a new range of direct fixings, in addition to its already extensive range of products, as well as investing in a new research laboratory and new office areas – in a modern facility designed using low emission technologies.
HAMAR is a family company set-up in the early 1990s that initially focused on the distribution of tools and fixings for the construction industry. In the following years the company underwent dynamic growth – based on the production in its own factory, and distribution of products under its own brands.
Throughout every stage of its production process HAMAR focuses on high-quality, which is a key selling point for its customers. “We follow market trends carefully so that we can provide our customers with products of the highest quality, performance and safety parameters,” explains Bogusław Grzesiak, president at HAMAR SP.J. B.I H. Grzesiak. “Our products are subject to constant control by our factory production system and furthermore by the constant supervision of independent auditors. The positive technical assessment of our products is attested by both Polish and European Technical Assessments.”
The company offers a wide range of fixing techniques, tailored to the needs of the most demanding clients. “Through our daily contact with customers we are able to keep up to date with the construction market and identify expectations,” mentions Bogusław. “This also shows us the route to developing new products through understanding market trends.”
HAMAR carries out joint research with customers as part of its technical support – to ensure correct interaction between products and the connecting surface. “This type of comprehensive service is a vital part of our business and is how we build long-lasting partnerships with our customers,” states Bogusław. “In addition to our wide assortment of high-quality products – which provide solutions that optimise efficiency and cost of assembly – you need to be able to provide expert professional knowledge and advice.”
Currently the domestic market accounts for 70% of HAMAR’s total sales, with export representing 30%. The company is planning for further growth in key markets in the future. “We have the opportunity to grow production through the flexible tailoring of our product range to new client needs,” points out Bogusław. “Our range is constantly updated, which is much appreciated by our customers, construction companies, investors, and developers, all of whom are looking for optimal fixing solutions according to world-class standards. Our biggest challenge is successfully building our recognisable brand in European markets.”
