The Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum launched its Meet the BBLF Success initiative on 24 November. Our first host was Lindstrom Bulgaria and our partner was the Finnish Embassy in Sofia. We are grateful to them for their kind cooperation.
Meet the BBLF Success is an exclusive event that seeks to present the inspiring success stories of our member companies in all sectors: their entrepreneurship, development, achievements, innovations andbest CSR practice. The initiative also aims to foster contacts and business collaborations within BBLF.
The first company to avail of this special opportunity was Lindstrom Bulgaria, a market leader in providing work clothes and mats for rent that offers hands-on, cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions. Ventzislav Boyadjiev, Executive Director presented the local branch of the global company that was founded in Finland in 1848.
Achieving the highest level of sustainability is at the core of the business model of Lindstrom. To this end the company not only rents textiles but also uses proven environmental methods for professional cleaning while implementing the concept of circular economy in its services. The process contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of both the company and its customers.
The guests from the BBLF business community had the opportunity to visit the service centre of Lindstrom Bulgaria and get to know in detail the basic operations and methods including high standards for quality and efficiency, wise use of natural resources, recycling, digitalisation among others. Please have a look at the pictures in the gallery below.
