We crossed the Atlantic Ocean more than 25 years ago to penetrate the Latin American market, with which we share language and culture. Now it's time to do the same with its North American neighbours. It is a great challenge for us with which we hope to contribute all our knowledge in designing products with a Mediterranean essence, our production values, European design and the new trends in finishes and materials that turn furniture into a well-being tool", explained the Consultant and Brand Reputation Director at ACTIU, Soledat Berbegal.
