Although we are small market, there are all famous low voltage brands on the market. Unfortunately, because of the crisis, there are not so many new projects here.

What is the most important progress?
Noark brand is more and more visible and all customers really trust to our products and solutions.
What you found challenging on your job?
First, I am very happy because, from unknown brand, we have very good business results now, justafter three years. Definitely, there is a big progress and it makes me strong and happy.
