Success stories

Abena Polska Sp. z o.o.

62 years ago in Aabenraa, Denmark,
Jens Terp-Nielsen established Saekko A/S,
a small family-owned business. Over the years,
the company grew and extended the scope
of operation and reached for new markets.
In 2003 the company changed its name to Abena. At the moment, the company employs over 1300 people all over the world providing a wide range of incontinence, skin care and medical products. Just to mention a brand such as Bambo Nature or companies Abena Re-Seller, OX-ON, Finess and Rul-let which are a part of the business.

Since 2005, the beginning of its presence in Poland, Abena Polska operated in the Goleniów Industrial Park. Due to its rapid development, the company extended the logistic centre and office building. Opened in October 2015, the new complex occupies over 10 thousand m2, and it is not the end of the development. Abena Polska has already planned further development in the Goleniów Industrial Park.

It is worth mentioning that in 2015 Abena Polska celebrated its tenth anniversary. The rapid development was possible due to the development of infrastructure and increase in employment,
but also excellent financial results. In 2015, Abena Polska was recognised by the monthly business magazine Forbes and was awarded a title
of Forbes’ Diamond in the Westpomeranian Region in the group of companies generating revenue
of PLN 5-50 million. In the same year, the company received an award of the Polish Minister
of Economy for its activity in Poland.

Abena Polska is deeply rooted in its local environment. Cooperation with the Municipality
of Goleniów, Westpomeranian Region,
and Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce are the best examples of that. Key features
of the company include innovation
and environmental care. Abena is a member
of the Business Social Compliance Initiative
and a number of UN Global Compact initiatives supporting sustainable development. Abena prioritises waste management and care of natural resources.

We are glad that from the very beginning
of our activity in Poland we are linked
to the Goleniów Industrial Park. We highly appreciate smooth and fruitful cooperation,
and professional approach presented by local institutions.

BTS Sp. z o.o. (sia Abrasives Polska Sp. z o.o.)

We are a team of specialists dealing
with the production of grinding systems. Its wide variety of products for abrasive surface processing includes coated abrasives, such as endless belts, rollers, discs, sheets, strips, as well as brush heads, flap discs, coated foams and nonwoven abrasives, and grinding systems. The range of products includes over a hundred thousand abrasives.
The belt linking system is the high-end solution
in the sector and the hole cutting technology
for discs and strips guarantees scratches free coated surfaces after processing. The company harnessed its fabric coating technology similar to that used by manufacturers of jewellery
and watches, and systems for polishing.

The company entered the market in the early 1990s. Being a Polish representative of Swiss
sia Abrasives, the company has always implemented its partner’s basic strategy based
on market research, creating and supporting innovation in abrasive systems and technologies, delivering top quality abrasives, as well as providing training and professional consultancy service regarding technology, tools and materials for processing wood and metal.

The cooperation involving BTS and sia Abrasives started with an intensive workshop in the Swiss training centre. Initially, the company was involved in trading only. The rapidly growing furniture market in Poland enabled the company to start operating the first packaging line for endless belts in Szczecin in 1997. At that time, the company strengthened their position on the market by developing the distribution and technical service network and organizing a series of training courses.

Later, the company set up the second line
for coated belts and purchased and renovated buildings for its new facilities in 1999.
They moved to the new location to develop production. The first line started producing abrasive belts for processing wooden floor
and packaging of discs. In order to promote further growth, the company had to move once again
and expand its manufacturing and warehousing space. In 2008, the company moved to a new building developed in the Goleniów Industrial Park, a sub-zone of the Kostrzyn-Słubice Special Economic Zone.

Today BTS employs over a hundred people, occupies 5.5 thousand m2 of office, production
and warehousing space, and operates six branches in Poland and abroad. Our operations are based on modern digital control systems and unique processing lines. Relevant volumes of resources and packaging materials are provided by our logistic centre with the capacity of 2 thousand pallets. We are capable of producing over
14 million endless belts and 20 million coated discs and strips, our flagship products, every year. Additionally, we manufacture niche products
and process special orders. Procedures ensuring quality, timely delivery and customer handling have helped us deliver our products to top players
on the global market.
