On June 8th, Wegierska Street in Nowy Sacz was filled with shiny motorcycles. Once again, more than 150 representatives of the construction industry from across Poland arrived on their motorcycles to the headquarters of FAKRO, a leading manufacturer of roof windows. MOTO FAKRO has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of FAKRO business partners. This year's “Motorcycle Meeting of the Builders of the Republic of Poland” took place on June 7-10.
“MOTO FAKRO is a combination of passion for motorcycles and acquiring knowledge. The aim of the meeting is to deepen relations with our partners and integrate the construction environment around FAKRO”, commented Paweł Kołbon, Product Training Department Manager.
The official part of MOTO FAKRO started with a ceremonial ride from Muszyna, where guests stayed, to Nowy Sacz. Motorcyclists reached the town by driving through the picturesque Poprad Valley. During a three-day visit to Nowy Sacz region, architects, salesmen and roofers took part in professional trainings and workshops, in the course of which they were presented with the latest products and innovative technological solutions applied in FAKRO branded products.
FAKRO took care not only of the substantive part of the training. Participants of the motorcycle meeting could choose from several optional excursions to such places as Red Monastery in Slovakia or Slovak Paradise mountain range and thermal pools in Bialka Tatrzanska.
The event was attended by the company's employees who are also enthusiasts of motorcycle trips. Piotr Żak, who works as a constructor and is FAKRO Brand Ambassador, described his participation in the event: “You could notice everywhere FAKRO flags attached to motorcycles which often travelled a long way to take part in the event as confirmed by number plates from across Poland. It was a great experience to participate in such an event organized by FAKRO, especially in a group of people with passion, people who respect each other and for whom a motorcycle is not just a vehicle but something more, sometimes even another “family member”.
“This is the 7th edition of MOTO FAKRO. The event was very well received and provides an opportunity to integrate the entire industry as we are visited by architects, roofers, salesmen and owners of trade companies. Connections that we made, often friendships, are relations to which we return for all year long”, summarised by the originator and organiser of the event Paweł Ulak, FAKRO Regional Director.
