2019 was a year marked by growth and development for MUSKITA. Thank you to all of our customers, friends and partners for your trust in us, your support and for making this year possible.
Here’s a look back at our 2019 highlights!
With innovation as our mission, we created 3 new ground-breaking aluminium products and systems, MU27 Slim, MUSKITA Acoustic Louvres and MUSKITA Horizon Balustrades and improved our existing product ranges with the addition of new profiles.
We launched our new Superdurable Class 2 Powder Coating collection, consisting of 32 specialty MU finishes created exclusively for MUSKITA together with RAL colours in smooth sophisticated shades and sanded matt textures, covering every style and need.
Expanding our state-of-the-art anodization plant to 68,000 amperes, increased our production capacity, slashing our delivery times for anodization finishes.
As leaders in our filed, our aluminium systems and products have been trusted with some of the largest projects in Cyprus that will transformation our skylines.
In November we celebrated the inauguration of our ultramodern showroom and our solar roof park by the President of the Republic of Cyprus. As the largest 2.5 MW photovoltaic roof installation in Cyprus with 6750 solar panels, it contributes to 30% of our energy needs, reducing our CO2 emissions by 2500 tonnes annually.
We received the ISO 14001 certificate enhancing our environmental performance.
We launched weekly seminars for architects at our premises (that we will reintroduce in 2020), to inform specialists of the latest trends in aluminium, news from our industry and our state-of-the-art products.
To keep up with all of this and to provide you with the best products and service, we grew our team with the addition of 27 new talented members.
But why stop there? Let’s look at the decade!
As 2019 draws to a close, we reflected on what defined our 2010’s. This decade had its challenges, particularly for our local economy, yet we are happy and above all grateful that we have grown stronger and more ambitious than ever.
MUSKITA celebrated 60 years of market leadership and relentless innovation.
At the start of the decade we launched our Accessories Department, enabling us to partner with leaders in their field to develop, produce and import the latest accessories and complementary systems. Today this department has grown to one of the largest and most reliable accessories manufacturers and distributors in Cyprus, offering competitive prices and outstanding quality.
We expanded our factory, investing in robotic accessory manufacturing and aluminium processing units more than tripling our in-house accessories production and reducing delivery times.
We received our 2nd Innovation Award for the design and production of our pioneering minimalist sliding system THÉA Minimal Aluminium Frames and remained a step ahead launching new products and systems. Moreover, we increased our body of certifications certifying our quality and assuring the performance of our products.
We renovated our Limassol showroom, creating an ultramodern space that goes beyond a simple product exhibition, with the goal to be a source of inspiration and creative thinking for new uses of aluminium.
The 2010’s were the decade of digital. At MUSKITA we reinvented ourselves by going digital on every level from our offices to production, streamlining processes and increasing efficiencies. We of course went social, to keep you updated on happenings in our company and industry. We also entered the virtual realm through our Virtual Reality tool that radically changes the way building design is evaluated and visualized, providing a unique opportunity to experience our aluminium systems in an interactive virtual environment. Last but never least, we launched our Track My Order platform to provide you real time information on the status of orders.
During this decade sustainability has moved from a niche activity to a global necessity and we are proudly part of this movement. From our aluminium recycling actions, environmental certifications and solar plant installation to optimizing processes across our factory we strive to further reduce emissions and waste. Our Going Green! campaigns at the Limassol Marathon help raise environmental awareness and action on sustainability. We continuously strive to design and manufacture energy efficient aluminium systems for use in near zero energy buildings and sustainable architecture. This decade is marked by Going Green!
Above all, we would not be able to grow and thrive without your support. Thank you for making these past 10 years possible and for an incredible 2019. Get ready for more in the New Decade!
