BUDMA 2017

DSC_4041 The BUDMA International Construction and Architecture Fair is the largest construction industry fair in Central and Eastern Europe. This year’s edition was held under the slogan “Inspiration–Knowledge–Business”. Visitors could not only acquaint themselves with the latest solutions in the fields of construction and architecture, but also take part in many events and meetings. More than 1,000 exhibitors from several dozen countries presented their products and services during the 26th edition of the BUDMA fair. Our company could not miss such a big event. During the four days, our stand was visited by several hundred guests. They included architects, traders, specialists, and investors, i.e. representatives of the most important groups of professionals to whom our exhibition of door and gate locks and cylinder lock inserts was dedicated. This year, it was possible to observe a major increase in the number of foreign investors from Eastern Europe, looking for new solutions and products that are in increasing demand on their markets. The products and services offered by our company met with considerable interest, which translated into a large number of queries in the next days. This indicates that the market is increasingly oriented towards domestic producers — such as S.I. Metal.

New logo

logo_simetal Recent years have brought many big changes to our company. These changes have meant substantial investments in machinery (inter alia a new cutting machine for sheet metal, two automatic lathes, a lathe centre), a purchase of three new cars, long list of renovations of both offices and production and social rooms. It has been time of development and expansion of the quality assurance department and obtaining ISO 9001 certificate. To sum all of these up, we decided to give our trademark a new look, so that it would on the one side combine our 65-year-long experience, and on the other side – show our new face. We present you our new logo with pleasure. It was registered within the territory of the European Union.

Application of a squeezer utility model to the Patent Office

1-350x350 While observing an ecological awareness level growing in the country, we decided to implement our own pro-ecological product - squeezer. In this device we used several innovative solutions which considerably influence its utilitarian assets. The product was restricted as a utility model at the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland.

Our squeezer is of universal application - by means of it you can reduce capacity of aluminium cans effectively (standard and after energy drinks), PET bottles and cartons after drinks. Its simplicity makes it possible to use them at home and in larger groups of people such as housing estate rubbish dumps, school canteens, kitchens in gastronomic buildings.
