On October 24th 2017, a large number of customers, key partners and Habasit employees from all over Central and Eastern Europe gathered together to celebrate the opening of the brand new Fabrication Center of Habasit Ukraine in the country's capital of Kyiv. Participants of the event enjoyed a rich exchange of information and experience, while also being treated to an exclusive tour of the new facilities.
Habasit Ukraine had been considering the move for sometime, but it was not until recently that they felt the time was right to make a change. The Ukrainian market has been gradually stabilizing and there are likely to be significant economic advances in the coming years. Through recent EU trade agreements, Ukrainian companies have more opportunities for exportation. General Manager of Habasit Ukraine, Alexander Detsyura, felt it was essential to be well-positioned to support customers who will now become reliable first-time partners for companies around the world.
Kyiv is a location with excellent nationwide accessibility allowing for direct service and delivery to each and every customer. Habasit Ukraine has also increased their stock selection and invested in new machines which have drastically expanded their capabilities and lead times. Although their focus is currently on the potential of the national market, the new fabrication center is well-equipped for exportation possibilities in the future. The move is a significant step forward for the company and opens new opportunities for customers and collaborators alike. (ST)
