SBC welcomed new members to the association

On Monday, the company Akrapovič hosted the sixth meeting of the association, where we addressed some important subjects connected to our future activities. We started off with changes and amendments to the Contract establishing the association, which will enable easier and quicker acceptance of new members, as we wish our club to grow larger and stronger and, at the same time, socially recognisable, being an example of fair business, which changes development in Slovenian society. We will also be more successful at the latter in the light of possible growth of membership including those businesses outside Slovenia which are owned by Slovenes.

The club accepted new members following strict but fair criteria. This time, the 66 existing members were joined by 6 new, extremely successful ones, each in their field of interest. We gladly welcomed the companies Darovi Rokus, Dukart Trbovlje, Kogast Grosuplje, Petre šotori – hale from Vransko, Polycom Škofja Loka, and a sole trader Sašo Misotič.

The company Dukart was established in 2007 and it is the general representative of the company Valoviti papir Dunapack Zabok – Croatia in Slovenia. Dukart has got its own production line of paper pulp – commercial packaging with offset printing.

The company Kogast Grosuplje is a family company, which has been operating for 57 years, developing, manufacturing and designing a wide programme of good quality and technologically perfected kitchen equipment Kogast, made of the best-quality stainless sheet metal. The company currently employs 100 people.

Polycom Škofja Loka has, since its establishment in 1985, grown into a mid-size company with over 250 employees operating on two locations: Poljane and Črnomelj. The family company manufactures polymer products, complex tools for plastic injection moulding, advanced technology products and assembles parts for the automotive industry, compressor technology, electrical industry, home appliances and personal care products. Today, more than 70 % of their production is exported to foreign markets. Polycom’s buyers come from the EU, North and South America, Japan and China. They have been extending their sales network in different fields and in different countries for several years now.

Darovi Rokus is a company owned by a Slovenian entrepreneur Rok Kvaternik, who led the company Rokus Klett, the biggest Slovenian educational publisher with around 40 employees.

Among other things, sole trader Sašo Misotič manages the Slovenian branch of the German company Dallmayr. This is a family company, one of the leading delicatessen houses in Europe and it is a leading provider in Germany with branches in Austria, France, Switzerland, Eastern European countries, and in the Arab world.
