„It is a very special award for us because it showcases the durability of Selena’s business achievements. Selena has been serving customers for 22 years, initially in Poland, and for the past ten years – internationally. Today, we have over dozen businesses outside Poland and not only do we market our products, we also manufacture them in countries such as Turkey, Brazil, China, Spain or Romania. It is thanks to this global scale of operations that we’ve been able to grow the Selena Group dynamically in various directions. We’re all the more pleased that Selena’s way of doing business – focused on building a strong presence in the construction chemistry sector both in Poland and worldwide – has been distinguished with the Economic Award of the President of Poland. We are honoured to be presented with this prestigious award – it motivates us to press on with our plans for international development” – said Jarosław Michniuk, Selena CEO during the award gala.
