How was the year 2015 for your company?
It was a good year. We started a communication campaign based on “touch” concept. Product portfolio was also expanded. We target 15 % growth in the coming year.
Companies like yours are exhibiting their products in sleep shops not in corner shops. Do you have any plan in this regard?
We think about store concept again in 2015. We will start the new concept in 2016. Mattress and sleep centers will be separa- ted. First you will enter a nice and well-illuminated room. Earlier lights were dimmed. Products are becoming glossier.
Will you inform us about the study you have made to learn about sleep habits of the people in Turkey?
We worked with Ipsos who polled about one thousand people in 6 regions in Turkey. They prepared a map of sleep habits. How the people living in different parts of the country are sleeping, what types of mattresses are preferred? We will soon share the results of the study.
What do you want to say lastly?
When mattresses are mentioned we remember words such as, comfort, peace of mind, softness and orthopedic. Our mattresses have these associations. Mattress is important for the people from their early ages, starting from their childhood. We emphasize on natural products in fabrics and the effects of them on muscles. It is important, because more the one fourth of our lives are spend on mattresses.
