Perseverance in pursuing the goal defines our fate, creates opportunities, and leads to success. Looking back, in everyone’s life, there are a lot of moments that seem to be movie stills that we would like to see in a movie theater. Company founder Christopher Piwek mentioned such a moment that was held on Sunday when together with his brother, they were searching for a job. It was a last household and one last refusal in the German village, and the moment when they were heading toward the wicket when suddenly they heard a shout to wait a while. Such a moment falls into memory and lets us direct the further flow of events. Work in the Vineyard of the household host’s daughter was only an opportunity to gather funds, thanks to the perseverance of searching. Although it may seem like this particular issue does not have much in common with running a company, however, character, approach, and persistence, which are strengthened by life experience, have a significant impact on how the company was and is being run these days.
People are not defined by success but by the path to being successful
After returning to Poland, the production of pipes assigned for strollers started in the home garage. It is the garage where the metal sheet broaching machine was built, and the very first spark felt to the ground during welding. Spark that created a bonfire of development. The proposal of drilling the trolleys for linear systems and guides and Computerized Numerical Controlled Machines resulted in the purchase of drillers and threaders. Every other drilled hole was letting more wind of change and development in the sails. Despite many peals of thunders, the boat was still going on. As the founder himself says:
"I am the kind of person that cannot sleep soundly"
what brings a lot of positive issues, such as having his finger on the pulse – always! The purchase of milling machines and renting a hall was another milestone in the development, although the true breakthrough was planting production in Rososzyca, where the company’s wings were spread. An organization implemented many management systems and innovative solutions and obtained many certificates of our times. The other side of the coin is still the family approach, like in the good old days. This kind of contrast lets us manage the company rationally, avoid exaggerated form over substance, perform according to a specific framework, simultaneously staying flexible. Tradition and modernity create the balance in the PIWEK Centrum Obróbki Numerycznej Company – A company you can trust.
