On December 1, Building Elegance officially celebrated its first anniversary. A good moment to reconfirm the strategy going forward and to reflect on the challenges and achievements of the first year.
Aart Jan Vos, Director, comments: ‘Hans, Joris, and I started Building Elegance with a common dream to become the designer and supplier of choice for sun control systems in Europe and the Middle East. Basically that still sums up what we aspire to be: after our first year of operation, we feel strongly that we are on the right track strategically. Along the way, we have had to make numerous operational and tactical adjustments. Apart from the occasional stress which this caused, I believe that we worked through those challenges in a great spirit of teamwork. We established a solid base in Etten-Leur, the Netherlands, where our core team is now located and where we hold stock of key components. Furthermore, we were very pleased that our key suppliers have supported us throughout and have gone the extra mile when it was needed. Our network of sales agents in various countries has also been established, which now starts to function well. We have been fortunate enough to have been involved in more than 10 high-profile projects throughout Europe and the Middle East, some still going on at this very moment. Furthermore, we quoted on more projects than we had anticipated, so hopefully with this the first seeds have been planted for continued growth in our second year and beyond. Last but not least, we would like to express a big ‘thank you’ to our customers and partners who have given us their trust and ongoing support.’
