OUR STORY BEGINS
SAAV commenced its operations at the beginning of 1999 with the production of roll-up industrial and garage doors, roller security shutters, and external roller blinds. It soon became one of the distinctive companies in the sector. Since the beginning, the constant working principle has been to satisfy customer demands. SAAV’s slogan is “YOU ARE SPECIAL FOR US.” Strict compliance with this principle enabled the company to establish itself in the market quickly as a quality manufacturer and a good partner, both for its customers and its partners and suppliers. The multiple references received by SAAV from a considerable number of private customers and property developers allowed the company to take a leading position in the sector of garage doors and roller security shutters. With its constantly expanding facilities and qualified personnel, the company started working on complex sites of entire residential quarters of luxury apartment houses.
WE LAUNCHED A NEW PRODUCTION LINE
After purchasing a line to manufacture PVC and aluminum windows in 2002, the company developed a new manufacturing method in parallel with making rolling doors. As a result of the efforts of the management body and the employees in the office, the company established itself in just a few months in the market windows, proving quality for this new market. The level of quality in this activity is being determined – first and foremost – by the systems chosen for PVC windows. This is done by the German system SALAMANDER and the aluminum system ETEM with its reliability and functionality, characterized by a diversity of profiles and a range of colors.
