Summary

Summary: 
Polish manufacturer and designer of comfortable beds, pillows and blankets for pets is looking forward to cooperating with companies from Germany, Spain and/or the United Kingdom. The company would like to establish long-term cooperation with distributors (willing to sell their products on new, foreign markets) and/or companies that would like to establish a manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

A Polish company, established in 2016 and specializing in production of accessories for pets, is offering their products and services to partners from Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.

The products portfolio includes the following:
- beds: the beds are made of removable, non-allergic, cotton and fleece minky slipcovers. The inside is composed of non-deformable, non-allergic silicone balls that easily adapt to pet’s silhouette and create a non-friendly zone for any microorganisms like fungi or mites. The zipper is hidden and of the highest quality possible (made by Japanese YKK company). The bottom of the bed is made of thick, waterproof cordura, that ensures the bed will last long in a good shape.
- pillows: the pillows are made of removable, upholstered slipcover and non-deformable, non-allergic silicone balls inside that easily adapt to pet’s silhouette and create a non-friendly zone for any microorganisms like fungi or mites. The zipper is hidden and of the highest quality possible (made by Japanese YKK company).
- blankets: the blankets are made of cotton outside and silicone non-woven inside.

Below is a list of standard sizes for the products described above:

XS: 40 x 50 cm
S: 45 x 65 cm
M: 53 x 75 cm

All the products have the Oeko-tex and “Safe for Children” certificates. All products (i.e. slipcovers and blankets) can be easily washed in the washing machine.

In addition, the company is going to introduce new types of products soon, i.e.:
- stain-proof car covers,
- antibacterial bedding for pets.

The company is already engaged in trans-national cooperation, and its products are available in selected stores in Hungary and the Czech Republic, however the company would like to strengthen its international presence and number of international partners. Therefore the company is interested in establishing long-term cooperation with all interested from Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The company would like to enter into a distribution services agreement with all interested in introducing products of high quality that are aimed at people in love with animals. Specialized pet shops are especially welcome, nonetheless warehouses that would like to distribute products a bit more expensive but of higher quality are also sought.
In addition, the company is open to manufacturing agreements, white/private label manufacturing is possible (the company can manufacture either its own products under other company’s label or can manufacture entirely new products according to plans/designs provided by a foreign partner).
Each type of cooperation will be discussed individually with the interested party.
Currently, the company is able to supply around 100-200 items per month; however, this volume is about to be increased soon, as the company constantly works upon its designs and production capabilities.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
a) the fabric used in production is stain-proof and covered with nano-particles that make it very difficult for dust or dirt to penetrate the fabric; b) the fabric used allows for easy cleaning that does not require the use of any additional detergents (only warm water is needed); c) the company is very proud of its high quality and remarkable customer service – in the last 3 years there were only two complaints: - the first one was related to a zipper of Chinese origin, currently the company uses only the best Japanese zippers there are on the market); - the second one was related to customer making an order for incorrect size of the bed (the bed did not fit in the corner that it was supposed to go); - in general, the clients are positively amazed by the quality and detailed finish of the products.
