In 2009, Lesni, which manufactures air and water purification plants, suddenly faced empty order books in the wake of the economic crisis, which presented it with major challenges.
By early 2010, the company had managed to secure new orders, but tight cash flow meant that it was short of money for sub-suppliers, payroll and creditors. There was thus no money to take on the new orders.
Lesni exports up to 90 per cent of its production and is known for its excellent products and valuable expertise in air and water purification for pharmaceuticals, furniture, paints & varnishing manufacturers, and public-sector enterprises.
The plants are exported to clients in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, Latin America and the USA. It was vital for Lesni to find a solution so it could retain its clients.
