Although having knowledge of and third part experience with the business, both Jan and Kenneth accepted their positions with a somewhat limited firsthand experience within the interior scene:
“The first six months we have worked very hard getting to know the industry; during this process, we definitely believe, that the business holds some unexploited potential, that we intend to take fully charge of. We see many new possibilities for Bloomingville AND for our customers, a highly interesting intersection where it is possible to generate value for both Bloomingville and customers. This is where we are going to put our energy for the year to come”, Jan and Kenneth agree.

That is why we have spent a great deal of time making the right organizational structure; including investments in new resources. We need to prepare Bloomingville for the future challenges and we believe, that with the team now on board, Bloomingville is ready to reach new levels”.

The development the company has undergone is amazing, and we are grateful and humble to be a part of this journey. With this in mind, our mission is to bring Bloomingville even closer to the market and our customers. We CAN make an even greater difference for our customers; now our job is to show them how.
