BEHIND THE SCENES
OF OUR COMPANY
QBL was founded in 2004 by Wojciech Śliwka, the ski instructor and a two-time Polish champion in mountain biking - one of the major pioneers of this sport. Initially, the company’s activity was based on running ski rentals and a ski school in the Beskid Mountains, but later on, it focused on manufacturing. A great passion for skiing combined with the knowledge of the sports industry and experience in managing ski rental shops resulted in the creation of the first specialized products. Full commitment to the design of top quality ski storage and drying systems brought immediate results. Over last years, the company’s production potential has increased several times and a team of people that share the same values, goals and ambitions has gathered around the company’s founder. Today QBL Systems has an extensive, dynamically developing distribution network and implements winter sports infrastructure projects in more than 30 countries worldwide. The quality of QBL products has been confirmed by international experts and the prestigious ISPO Award Winner in 2014 and 2019.
QBL Systems strives to become an authentic and reliable partner for every customer. We put a great effort in creating ideas and providing quality that will meet needs and requirements of our business partners. We realize that by providing products that are consistent, functional and stand the test of time we support their ski-related businesses and their development. Meeting the expectations of our customers worldwide requires competences, openness to market changes and innovativeness. Every day we learn and assimilate these crucial features to use them in practice in our highly competitive business environment. We do it by improving production processes, by seeking better manufacturing solutions, embracing new materials and designs, learning from our previous experiences and facing new challenges. “We realize that by delivering high quality, innovativeness and reliability we support the businesses of our clients worldwide. We strive to become their true and trustworthy partner. This is our mission.”
