About us | ARTMATCH | Romania

About us

Developed under the spectrum of an emerging economy, our company is sustaining activities in three different fields: supplying in-store communication products, furniture and various other infrastructure elements; production of standard and custom made plastic displays; import and supplying of corporate identity clothing and promotional items. Supplying in-store communication products remains our core business, a niche where we are market leader in our home country - Romania. Currently, our offer is based on a collection of 15000 items, from which over 1000 are produced in-house, the rest of them being imported from our traditional partners from Germany, Holland, Belgium, Great Britain, Sweden, Finland, USA, Canada or Japan. All these items are to be found in our ARTMATCH - Sales Manager catalog, now already at its 6th edition.
 
On the metallic furniture field we are working with producers from German, Italy and Turkey. Our mounting teams are specialized in working in big heights, in order to implement suspended in-store displays. The same teams are mounting the shelving and customer guidance where needed. Our second field of activity - production, came naturally. The customized displays that we produce are complementary to the standard products range, answering to the more and more complex needs of the retailers. Producing them in-house, we have the chance to control the costs 100%, great advantage that is, of course, transmitted to our customers. Import and distribution of promotional materials are a constant in our activity ever since the foundation of ARTMATCH. The market evolution and the expertise that we achieved in all these years, leaded us to a very specialized niche: corporate identity clothing. Supplying collections like James Harvest, Printer, Mac One, Jingham, Pro Job, DAD and Grizzly and having a network of 14 resellers, nationwide, we became the biggest corporate clothing supplier in Romania.

History

Once this real estate extension has been completed, our production and storage capacity have increased, and thus the required logistics and the development of technological flow are now available to us for all new projects that we have undertaken in the past few years. Many years ago, our company began operating with smaller projects, but by providing excellent quality and with dedicated approach, the agreements we have signed with our customers have increased the trust they have to recommend us to new leads.
