A Year of Milestones and Success in 2013
Last year was one of the most important in the history of our company. We changed our name and image for the first time in 16 years. But more importantly, we were able to fulfill all our commercial and financial goals in spite of the extremely difficult situation on the cleaning and related services market.
The merger between HPF Clean and ES Facility Management halfway through last year meant not only a new name, HPF CleanCat, but also new plans focused on expanding throughout the Czech Republic and in near-border areas of Slovakia, as well as Poland in the near future. We followed through on these plans in the form of many new deals to provide cleaning services in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which forms a solid basis for future expansion. This also meant that we fulfilled our 2013 financial plan, as well as our expected profit. Our success in Slovakia led to the creation of an independent branch that we want to use to increase our footprint in the country.
We want to maintain this trend in 2014 and utilize the potential we have acquired. Besides expansion in Slovakia, we want to strengthen our position in the Czech Republic while competing for significant contracts in both countries. However, we won't forget about our current clients, who will continue to receive the best services.
We wish all our current and potential customers not only professional success, but also personal happiness and good health. We hope to contribute to their comfort in 2014 through our highly professional services just as we have in the past. We also must thank our employees, who were the reason for our success in 2013.
We provide services ranging from cleaning and security to facility management:
