The success story of a family business
The most successful year in the history of the family business was 2012, when it was decided to acquire some land with the abandoned wooden building, which are situated in the rural area. Then the company decided to participate in the project contest in order to receive the support from the EU Structural funds and created a business plan and investment project, called “Development of non-standard furniture manufacturing business in the rural area”. The priority for assigning this support based on this measure was the development of family business in the rural area. After receiving the funding for the project, based on the program for village development from the EU Structural funds, we have built a modern factory for manufacturing the furniture in the place of the abandoned building and acquired modern wood processing equipment.
In a majority of businesses, the organisation is said to be equal to a family. Our family is an organisation of a family, with a solid foundation of traditional family values. However, until now, in the business itself, the family holds the value, which, in their opinion, contributed the most to the success of the business and helped to survive even in the most difficult times. It is the teamwork, uniting the family, which is exercised both in the business as in the sports competitions. We believe in this and this led us to success. Four members of the family are professional sailors. Other members of the family are a permanent support team. The family members are leading crews of two yachts belonging to the family, which are called “Vasara” (Summer) and “Pandora”. The yacht crews that are led by two family members (captains) are multiple time winners of the international “Kuršių Marios” and Lithuanian sailing championships. Currently, the family furniture business is managed by the new generation. We are motivated, progressive and competent.
