Our activity started in the beginning of the 90s, as a small family company dealing with export of automotive parts from Germany to Poland. At first, we were usually dealing with export of air, fuel and oil filter and fan belts to the cars of Western makes.
At that time, there weren’t many parts for the Western cars on the automotive market, because there weren’t any service stations or specialist workshops. After short period of time, due to increasing number of cars of Western make on the Polish market, we started trade and service activity, importing necessary for car repairs, parts for the so-called Order. We have opened point of sale at Wólczańska street in Lodz. We also advertised our presence on the market in the widely-read local magazines and newspapers.
The services provided by our company, Ribuco consisted in direct phone contacts with service stations in Germany, in the presence of a client. In this way, a client could receive a message about the costs related to import of the parts to Poland, costs of purchase and time of realization. This innovative way allowed us to increase a number of individual clients, as well as points of local repairs or service stations. As market of automotive parts was developing, our company were aware of the fact that many new companies were established, mostly wholesale outlets of car parts. Therefore, our main activity has become examination and analysis of world markets, looking for new attractive products, which we launched on the European market.
We were first, who launched universal catalysts, lambda sensor and aero turbine mufflers for car, on the Central and Western Europe market. All these products were imported from abroad to Poland, above all, from Western part of the globe, mainly from the United States. In the beginning, we have a dealership of an American company, Perfection, producer of catalysts, and after some time, of an enterprise Catco, the largest producer of catalysts on the US market. A leitmotiv of this internationalization was a desire to appear and maintain on the international market but, above all, a possibility of satisfying needs of the consumers and offering the highest-quality goods on the Polish market.
Developing further in this direction, in 2000, we began to cooperate with a Korean enterprise, Kumsung Bellows. Since then, we only imported the so-called flexible pipes made of the highest-quality materials. Thanks to high quality and functionality, these connectors won wide recognition in Poland and abroad, among many car repair specialists, wholesale outlets and producers of mufflers from the whole European Union and countries of Eastern Europe.
As the only European company, we have exclusive rights to sell KSB products and as the only importing company in Poland, we sell Kumsung Bellows’ flexible pipes, unlike many competitors, of which products are sold as „No name”.
However, we don’t stop looking for different ones. As a company, we are enriched by new experiences, open to propositions and needs of other companies. Today, our goal is to satisfy needs of our clients, within the scope of offered products, and to make the newest solutions in motorization available to them.
